From Capital Teas

Our Kenyan Kosabei estate TGFOP is one of the finest, most flavorful tea to be found anywhere on Earth. An inspiring cup from the “Tuscany of Tea”, it is light and profound, gentle and astringent with notes of malt, currant and moist earth. This tea makes an excellent self-drinker but also takes milk extremely well.

Such a pretty tea when dry. At least 3 different colors of leaves, maybe 4.

Lightly astringent, slightly malty. Definitely dry but not puckery. Much gentler than the other Kenyan blacks I have tried. A good, basic black to keep around. If I didn’t already have good, basic blacks, I’d make sure to keep this on hand.

On a sad note, this is my only cup of tea today. The last week or so I’ve noticed a fluttery, phone-on-vibrate sensation off to center left of my chest. Pulse is fine, bp is fine. No other sensations. But I have been going kind of nuts with the tippy teas lately and those have more caffeine than others. Nuts like having 2 pots of yunnan type tea a day kind of nuts. I have never been caffeine sensitive but as my husband is fond of saying lately – we are both getting older.

So… my first step is cutting way back on anything with caffeine and replacing it with water. My promise to myself was to cut caffeine completely for a week. I just can’t do it. It’s cool and wet out and I want tea!!!!

Hamster heart sensation is no fun!

It’s bizarre. Hamster heart is a perfect term for it!

My doctor calls it …“because you are no longer 18.” I like that :) (I ended up on an inexpensive RX for the heart-racy stuff; has been very helpful.)

Ah, so it isn’t just me….

My wife has been dealing with this fluttery thing lately. She stopped all caffeine years ago for other health issues. Being without insurance has us both nervous. One day at a time. Good luck Nicole cutting back. Not sure I could handle it well.

Well, if your wife stopped caffeine years ago and still has the fluttery thing, I’m not giving up my tea! :)
