From Harney & Sons

During our most recent trip to China, we made it to the Weishan area. In the back of the Buddhist temple is an organic garden where we discovered a great Spring tea. This tea is light in the cup, with the right amount of roast flavors.

My bestie texted me this morning to ask if we could have tea today. I said, “Yes, please!” our computer got a virus and now my daughter’s high school transcript has to be redone completely from scratch. Oy vey! Transcripts are the very least favorite part of homeschooling to me!

Bestie has been wanting to learn to like green and white teas, so I chose this for our first. Since I have reviewed it a couple of times recently, I won’t restate a whole lot of what I said before, but it was a little different today and that is what I wanted to focus on.

The recommended steeping time is two to three minutes, and I was cautious before and kept it on the low side. Since it is such a light tea, I decided to increase my steep time today.

Drinking the first steep, I found myself running my tongue over my teeth repeatedly. I realized that the tea had left a creamy, almost buttery feeling. Yum! From now on, I will steep this one for three minutes.

Nothing like that little hot burny feeling in the pit of your stomach when the computer eats hours of your original work. Been there…too frequently!

ashmanra

Yes, and the original was in an old Word format, nothing I did wood make it open, grades are lost and must be dug up in the attic in old lesson plan logs, and I am trying to learn how to set up tabs etc. in Apple’s Pages, a program I love but which has very little in the way of tutorials for making such a complex document! I finally found a template online I can use once I get all the information gathered together again, and I am under the gun because she has to have this transcript to go to school this fall! WWAAAAHHH! (First world problems, I know!)

ashmanra

Gee whiz! Would, not wood! I think AC got me!

gmathis

When did the world evolve (DE-volve, excuse me) to the point where it takes one family member working nearly a 40-hour week just to handle paperwork? Ay-yi-yi!

ashmanra

You are so right! Fortunately, when hubby got home he found a copy of the document, slightly corrupted but readable, on his laptop, so he printed it and I can gather most of the info I need from that and just type it into the template tonight or tomorrow. Whew.

Next – the dreaded FAFSA.

gmathis

I just loved it, after sweating and straining to get post-disaster taxes done a bunch earlier in usual, and after several tries getting it all punched in, the FAFSA auto-respond congratulated my son for completing all the required information when I did all the confounded work!

gmathis

No, I’m not bitter ;) I think I’d better just type TEA so as to calm down and get back on topic.

ashmanra

:) I remind myself that in heaven we won’t have to do taxes and other ridiculous paperwork!

Just got this from a trip to the SoHo Harney & Sons the other day. I asked about getting a green but was really not sure what I wanted at the time… just wanted to try something new of theirs for the sake of something new.

This is a very low-green sort of flavor, to me. As in, a darker taste. The liquor is light, but the taste is heavier, IMO. Spinach or asparagus or such… I can’t pin just what veggie it brings to mind. But yes, a dark, low, slightly (but pleasantly!) almost-bitter green.

Also a lighter color on the tip of the tongue… shading towards yellow in taste. I’d not say it was sweet, but… well, it has a lighter less intense feel. Perhaps as another described it as buttery would work here, but that’s not quite what it gives to me.

Round and medium weighted in the mouth. Feels smooth and slightly rich without pushing all the way into “heavy” territory.

I’m sure I’m not describing this clearly here, but this is a hard one for me to pin down. It’s a good quality green that I can’t assign specifics to, just impressions.

I will say that I really do like it. It’s not a top-favortiest-green for me, but one that I’m very happy to have gotten. I’d definitely recommend it to others! If you are a green lover, grab some of this; even if you don’t love it you’ll be glad you tried it!

Glad to have this one in my pantry. :)

Wait! After-thought! If you tend to like sencha this might be for you. The flavor, to me, is similar to some of the senchas I’ve had from Kyoto Obubu.
