We’ve fallen a bit behind on the Advent Calendar, Monday we hardly saw each other (I worked the early shift and she worked the late), so the pot of this never got made. We made it last night, and it was enjoyable enough. I’m not a big fan of the stuff, but I won’t protest if it’s available. It was light and refreshing enough to kind of clear out some of the heaviness following a dinner of Citron Oolong risotto with bacon and brussels sprouts.

When I opened this one I put it into the cooking cupboard, I remember having it in the summer and spitting it out, it make me think of a chicken and rice dish, so I’ll be using this to make a Thai chicken and rice dish sometime.

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.
