Unwinding from seeing Django Unchained which was classic Tarentino and really fun so I thought I’d give my new honeybush tea a try. Dry the leaves smell very strawberry, maybe it is the big chunks of freeze dried berry. The wet leaves smell similar but not as strong.

I brewed for 5 min with boiling water. The elixir has more notes of what I think is rhubarb in the aroma. The initial taste is berry and juicy somehow with later notes of rhubarb and lingering buttery and sweet notes. It is better as it cools and I can pick up more notes. It will probably be very good iced.

Grew up in Texas, lived and worked in Australia and New Zealand for a year. Now I am back stateside and living in Oregon. I drink most any kind of tea but blacks are my favorites.

“Tea is the taste of my land: it is bitter and warm, strong, and sharp with memory. It tastes of longing. It tastes of the distance between where you are and where you come from. Also it vanishes—the taste of it vanishes from your tongue while your lips are still hot from the cup. It disappears, like plantations stretching up into the mist.” Little Bee (Chris Cleave)
