drank Green Tea Decaf by Bigelow
1774 tasting notes

Another involuntary weekend away from home…my dad is two for two on Fridays (last week, hospital for kidney stones; this week, hospital for clots in leg). Had to pack fast and my bagged stash is low, so I grabbed this at the farm to drink en route to hospital.

I rarely meet a Bigelow tea I don’t like, but this one was really washed out. Almost soapy tasting. Green teas are light enough I think trying to further decaffeinate just washes out the flavor.

Sorry to hear about your dad! Did the meds for the kidney stones cause the blood clots? May better tea and times come your way SOON!

He’s just got an on-call dr. this weekend, whom I missed, so I have only the vaguest details.

The tea hasn’t improved…I picked up a cheapie English breakfast at WalMart…review to follow; I’m having to grab wifi fixes at McDonalds. How do you spell pleaugggggh?

Somebody asked me once when I became a tea junkie; I think it dates back to college when I needed caffeine for a 7 a.m. class but chose not to do coffee. My favorite teapot is a medium-sized Brown Betty given to me by my Mema; the painted flowers are chipping off, but the size and feel is perfect. I rejoice when I get a morning to brew a pot of loose tea starting with a kettle; not a bag and a hot pot.
