1812 Tasting Notes
Sampled this one for www.itsallabouttheleaf.com; review pending. I need to do a little research about which, if any, of the ingredients have a diuretic effect (could have been coincidence), but drinking this before bedtime resulted in a much-interrupted night’s sleep, and it wasn’t because of any caffeine :)
Made a big pot this morning specifically for the purpose of icing down after an afternoon of pending yard work. My tin is beginning to remind me of the widow’s jar of flour (if you’re a prophet Elijah fan, you’ll get it :) … every time I think I’m getting to the last scoop, there’s just enough for one more…
The write up of my first clumsy, but not entirely successful experience with pu-erh is up:
A treat—-was able to pick up an experimental ounce bulk at my getting-better-all-the-time favorite little health food store. Looks just like PG tips—ground fine, but used in the same proportions, seems to be just a tetch lighter and brighter in flavor (not in appearance). Would have to do a side-by-side comparison to be sure, and tea geeky as I am, I’d love to do that, but time is going to be a tight commodity this week. (Sigh. Not a great thought for an early Monday morning.)
This one’s in the queue at www.itsallabouttheleaf.com, but it’s good—really good! The word ambrosia was used in the review. And rightfully so. :)
Hard to get started this morning; so I treated myself to a morning cup of something really good. This is a yummy liquid illustration of “God, who richly provides us with everything to enjoy.” Surely Paul had a cup of this in front of him when he was writing 1 Timothy!
(Actually, probably not … try as I might to verify it, I don’t think tea hit that part of the Mediterranean until much, much later.)
