So on our trek down to Nashville (from Toronto), we stopped for lunch in a little place called Ashland, Ohio. Imagine my wife’s touristy glee when the restaurant was next to a big barn with a huge sign out front: “Grandpa’s Cheese Barn”.

So of course we stopped in, expecting a touristy, kitchy place full of country goodies.

We didn’t expect to find a whole display of loose leaf tea. A big bag of white tea for $6? Hey, even if it’s crap, that’s a good price.

It’s not crap. I’m actually rather in love with this one. I over sweetened it, because there is a lot of natural sweetness in the tea. It’s fruity and light and wonderful for this sunny summer day!

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!
