I am still working on a full review but basically at first I thought this is a light solid everyday Chinese green. That said, I was playing guitar and let half the cup set. Once it reached room temperature the flavors really came alive. It took on an almost oolong floral quality. I know it wasn’t tainted from earlier teas as I washed my cup and press before I started. I really want to try this iced. I think it will be great. $8/3oz is pretty cheap for any tea that can taste this good.

I really liked it—-and this from a non-greeny.

Oh, stop me… so I guess that means around your tea stash it isn’t easy being green. Sorry, I begged you to stop me.

Hey today is Thursday, have you forgotten the usual today?

K S

ha ha. 45F and raining this morning. Actually we stopped so my wife could get her coffee. I started to get a hot chocolate then decided I was good without it. Just hoping for the return (even briefly) of warm weather and sunshine.

:)The world was a much happier place when Jim Henson was around.

Jim and his wacky world inspired me and my wife. I love all of the Muppets but Gonzo is actually my favorite. I used to do rod arm puppets at church. Not meaning to be arrogant but I’ve seen video of me in action and I was very good at it. My breathing problems hit me performing during a teaching seminar and I had to give it up. My wife use to make the puppets. She has way over 200 ‘missionaries’ located all over the world, including Russia.

It’s a little counter-intuitive since I liked the original era best, but my soft spot is for Bobo the Bear from Muppets Tonight. Then Kermit himself. Hubby’s favorite is Johnny Fiyama (Muppets Tonight again).

Loved Bobo on the show with Cindy Crawford. “Pretty Lady” My wife’s favorite was Sweetums. I’ve had multiple Tee shirts with Animal and Electric Mayhem. My favorite was Kermit Unpigged – Kermit sitting on a stool with an acoustic guitar. Wore it until it rotted off of me. Wish I could find another. Favorite Muppet episode was with John Denver – Grandma’s feather bed. You could tell he loved the Muppets. His eyes sparkled when he was on the show.

Muppets and John Denver. Life was good.

BTW, I recorded Take Me Home, Country Roads when I was a kid and the studio gave me tickets to see John Denver live with my dad and a friend. It was awesome. Those were his early days.

How did I miss a Muppet conversation!? <3

K S

Ashmanra – how cool! What a neat story.
Stephanie – its never too late to jump in!

gmathis

It was nine feet high and six feet wide and soft as a downy chick.. Are we dating ourselves or what?

gmathis

Hubby just had a great idea…a Muppet parody of Oceans 11 with Johnny Fiyama!

K S

I would totally go see this one and would gladly add the DVD to my collection. It does need Sal Minella and Rizzo the rat. Somebody call the Henson people and pitch this!
