Today is Memorial Day here in Israel. It is a very serious day for us. Military service is mandatory, and there is hardly anyone here that hasn’t been touched somehow by the destruction that is war.

It is a sad day today – so I need a happy tea.

I’ve not had much green tea lately. For a long time now I’ve been having, almost exclusively, blacks, unflavored with milk, and rooibos. Just the mood I’ve been in.

This morning, while rummaging through my sample drawer, I found a sample of this that I had forgotten I’d ordered. I remembered how when I had first discovered tea my favorite pick-me-up tea was TGY oolong.
So thinking that maybe a green will also pick me up, I brewed a whole pot.

Yes. This is it. This tea is perfect.

Such a gentle and light Dragon Well. I’ve read that other’s found it nutty. Maybe my taste buds differ, because I’m not tasting nutty, only grassy, vegetal green goodness. It’s delicateness makes me think of something pure and innocent. And that is exactly what I need right now.
