Feeling lazy tonight. I’ve been using bags all day. I’ve had about six cups of Adagio’s Ginger Peach, but I’m bored of that. So out comes the Lapsang!

I went to go harass collect eggs from the chickens while this was steeping. Two from Cora, one from Addie and one from Mabel. (That’s assuming, of course, that they haven’t been stealing each others’ eggs… Cora lays green eggs, though, so we know which ones are hers!)

Came back, decided that I really didn’t want hot tea, poured it into a different cup, filled this one with ice cubes, then poured it back over the ice. I didn’t plan for this to be iced, so it’s a bit light in flavor, but that’s perfect.

Just the right amount of smokiness here. It’s a little bit malty and a little bit spicy. I think I’ll spend the rest of the night in bed with Netflix and a few cups of this :)

Ahh chickens! I’ve always wanted chickens (technically I sort of majored in chickens in college). What breeds do you have?

Michelle

Did you really? How so?

We’re not really sure what we have… we’re not too fancy with them! They’re all Bantams, but I think they’re generally mixed… Cora we’re fairly sure is at least part Americauna, green eggs and all, but the breeder referred to our others as “Sparkle” hens. So we don’t really know!

I don’t think I’ve ever tried icing lapsang souchong. I do like Taylor’s, though, and I’ve only had their bags. No milk?

Woo this got lost, sorry about no reply! I majored in Animal Science and focused on poultry and swine. :) Haha “sparkle” hens, no idea what those are! :)
