It is interesting how you can taste different things at different times. I didn’t prepare the tea any differently this time nor am I eating anything but today I can taste just a little smokiness in this tea. Maybe I should brew other tea and see if I pick up any nuance I have missed before. Maybe I have a new super power! (because I have so many old super powers)

That happens to me all the time! I think it has to do with there being so many variables in the process like brewing temp, length of time, temp of tea when you start drinking, how much milk and sugar you add – or don’t add.

As for super powers, you have the ability to drink fluids like a camel without taking a potty break! All those hours in surgery and on rounds! You can get to the tea shop in half the time it takes us to drive there. (We won’t go into HOW.) And your dogs can make entire batches of cookies DISAPPEAR! :)

That’s the dogs super power, the counter snatch. Man, they are fast and sneaky. I do have super bladder. Umm I think u tend to get a little lost with that GPS of yours, it has nothing to do with my lead foot.

Bio

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)
