2 minute steep. Smoke on the Water (live) blasting. I’m ready. I love the dark chocolate smell of the dry leaf. The wet leaf has a good black tea scent but is slightly smoky, and I am nervous. This is my third time brewing this. The first time, I greatly disliked the first cup (ok I hated it) and loved the 2nd and 3rd. The second time, I tolerated the first cup. Today I get it. I can honestly say I am enjoying this. Smoke is still the big flavor, but there are a lot of other interesting things going on here. So much different than my first impression. Lighter. Smoother. Before finishing the cup I have already shifted gears and am listening to Emmy Lou Harris – Smoke along the tracks, off the live at the Ryman CD. Good fit. Really glad I didn’t have to play the Platters – Smoke gets in your eyes. Ha. Ready to commit and up the rating.

Smoke on the Water….the only bass line I learned to play in college. Anytime hubby has the Gibson Ripper out, I have to play my riff!

Oh, and EmmyLou and I went to the same college! Way different years, though!

Emmy Lou – that’s what angels sound like. Someone mentioned Inna Gadda Da Vida in another review, that’s the riff I play to clear my head when I can’t remember the song I am supposed to be playing (make sense?) and it works. I play a Parker NiteFly.

Ha ha that would be me who mentioned In a Gadda Da Vida…I guess thats karma right :-)

Great minds think alike. Of course you realize I will have to listen to all 17:05 minutes of this tomorrow. Far out man.

See if you can find Emmy singing “Another Pot O’ Tea” … so soothing!

Trying to locate an internet ‘radio’ version that will actually play. No success yet.
