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 >.

Ah, tea. My love for you is ever changing. At my last update, I was all about the rooibos and now I hardly drink it. I only occasionally had an oolong and now I have one just about every day. I’ve learned the art of resteeping and coldbrewing and kombucha. I have a lovely little tea pet named…well, I haven’t decided on a name for him yet. I also have four live pets, a tabby cat named Rosabella Francis (Bella for short), a ginger cat named Orange Julius Pekoe (Pekoe), a white and grey cat named Earl Jean Grey (Earlie), and a red foot tortoise named Da Hong Pao (Pao). So if you see me referring to my girls, I don’t have kids, just animals.

As for tea, I love oolongs, herbals, and black tea. Since I am no longer working, I no longer feel the constant need for a mate energy boost, though I do still reach for it from time to time. I also drink less matcha, though I do throw a spoonful or two in when I’m making smoothies. Most of my tea I drink coldbrewed, and since I discovered coldbrewed rooibos was giving me headaches, I’m drinking less and less of it. Straight pu-erh is not a thing I enjoy, but there are a few flavored blends I like. Greens are still too finicky for me to bother with hot, but they make great cold brews.

I am by no means a tea purist. I greatly enjoy flavored teas and I put sugar in all of my teas. It’s just how I do.

I think I’m going to name my tea pet Mr. Turtle. Even though he’s a tortoise.
