Frank evidently blended a tea that is irresistible to my cat Sangye (pronounced San-jay). I put 2 tsp of leaves into a paper filter and walked away to do some other things while I waited for the water to boil. I came back to find my cat Sangye eating tea leaves. So, I didn’t get to taste that first cup.

I made another cup. The dried leaves have a laffy taffy smell to them (not necessarily a bad thing). The brewed tea has a strawberry candy flavor to it (could be that I over sweetened it – next time I’ll taste it before sweetening). I like it a lot. I am thinking this will be fabulous iced.

Here is a picture of Sangye in case you wanted to see him too:

KITTEH!!! implodes
He looks an unusual shade of orange there. Or is that just the light playing tricks?

He is a Devon Rex and has short soft curly fur. He is light orange. Here is another pic:

He’s gorgeous! I have an orange kitty too, but he’s a butterfly tabby and a little lighter in color.

Oh, and by the way, I love the butt warmer. I used to have a cat (my favorite of all time) who would turn on the tv through the set top box and sleep on top of it for the warmth.

@Morgana – that’s hilarious. They love sitting on the laptops. I close them and hook them to my monitor and keyboard so they are actually running and getting warm.

One of my current cats used to sleep on my printer for the warmth, in the curved area where the paper would come out. It was just the right size for a cat bed, which was awful. My docs would come out covered in cat hair. Eventually it got so clogged I had to buy a new one, and I cleverly bought one with an uncomfortable scanner do dah at the top. ;-)

Your cat is beautiful. If I ever get another cat, I am going to get an orange one. (Right now I have a black and grey striped tabby). My cat loves green tea so I feel your pain. I have to keep my eye on him because he’ll be drinking out of my cup when I’m not looking.

Kristin

Thanks. I also love the orange kitties!
