Wild Thing you make my heart sing. Fujian Jin Jun Mei do I need to say more? I found I prefer this with steeps around one minute. It can get a bit drying with long western steeps. Keep it short and this delivers the goods. Honey, caramel/cocoa, and lighter malt than I normally associate with this tea. Re-steeps well.

I’ve been wanting to order from Life in Teacup for awhile now.

I drank this during my break at work this morning. Used hot water from the coffee machine and steeped about a minute-a minute and a half. It was sweet, with lots of honey notes, maybe some sweet potato, a light malt, and a touch of caramel. Went well with my lunch, which was chicken curry and rice with some garbanzo bean stew. Definitely one I’ll look into repurchasing when the store opens back up.

So, I work at a hospital and they do this coding system for the nutrional value of the foods: green is safe foods, yellow are foods to eat only sometimes, and reds are danger foods that you should try to avoid. But what makes no sense to me, is that the chicken curry and the tofu curry, as well as things like eggs, are all red foods. But white bread, plain bagels, and the rice are all green foods? Really sounds wrong to me.

Really, eggs? I guess they consider any kind of fat to be bad.

Mandy

I thin it was the cholesterol. But eggs are a complete protein, they should be green, or at least yellow. They said they use certain criteria like sugar and sodium. But carbs are just as bad. It’s dumb

We have a similar system in the vending machine here at work. It’s just based on calories. Stupid.

Mandy

I don’t think they even count calories, carbs or anything. There’s a lot more calories in a bagel (~300-400) than a hard boiled egg (~70). And theres more protein and healthy junk in an egg. I would expect better coding from a hospital.

First tea of the day, enjoyed while I was fixing breakfast. This comes is 5 G beautiful bright red packets, & I bought 5. The leaf is a mix of black with gold, & of course, I love these small leaf Fujian teas anyway, so I’m sure I’ll love this one!
5G + 8oz X 1min/2min/& 5min
I plan to sample this tea using all of the methods that I enjoy, & see which one suites it best. I really wanted to go with the gongfu session, but I have things to do, places to go, people to see, so that will be reserved for maybe next time.
This session was very nice, & without going into to too much detail, the resulting tea was delicious: Somewhat floral, with a lightly tangy & shiny sensation on the top of my tongue, sweet & juicy underneath.

Now I’m off to move some rocks with my sons.

Move some rocks?

Terri HarpLady

Yeah! My oldest daughter & her husband, who live 1 block away, are redoing their patio again. The first time it was with a variety of sizes & shapes of rocks. Now they’ve decided to go with pavers, so they are giving me all the rocks, which is perfect, because I want them for landscaping! They’re also giving me a bunch of bricks, which I use in my garden.
