This tea will forever be linked with our cat, Pekoe, in my head now. I made a tea for one pot earlier this morning. The first cup was nearly knocked over by Pekoe racing around the house. The second I gulped after a terrifying 20 minute frantic search for Pekoe after the door was left open and she got out (both of our cats are strictly indoor, we live near a very busy street). The good news is, she did come when she was called. I desperately needed something to calm my nerves, and this did the trick. It’s smooth and creamy without cream…yum. Definitely stocking up next time I’m in store.

Glad you found Pekoe. I know the feeling of losing track of a cat and thinking they got out. Our old cat Squeak did that one time. We searched for hours inside and out and finally found him 3 hours later curled all around the hot water heater in the basement, asleep.

Well, we did learn that Pekoe is just as afraid of the outside as Rosabella, which is good. I opened the door and called for her and she came tearing out of the neighbor’s bushes with an air of “OMGWHATTOOKYOUSOLONGTHEREISNOCEILINGAAAAH”. When I was younger, my cat, Socks, managed to find herself lost when my brother’s dog came for a visit. My Dad accidentally shut her in a drawer, but she didn’t even notice, she just slept on >.<

My tastes in tea have changed, so I should update this as well. I find myself leaning more towards rooibos and herbals, if only for their great ability to chill in my travel mug for hours and not get weird on me. When I have time to properly brew a cuppa, I lean towards white teas (which I only steep for 30 seconds) and black teas (which only get 2-3 minutes from me). I cannot stand green teas, they’re too fiddly for my tastes. Oolongs are great, but a bit fiddly as well. However, I love watching oolongs open up in my looseleaf brewer. I’m slowly discovering mates and falling for them…there are many I look forward to trying!

So…yeah. That’s me and my tea!
