1st Steep of the Day
Great Job Member ambientqueenie Created and Recommended.
This Adagio Tea Arrived Today In Time to Make a Pot for Lunch.
Great Tea, Dry Tea Looks Full Of Blood Orange Rind,
The Dry Smell Is Profoundly Citrus with a Hint of “Cocoa”
Not Aware of all the Oriental Spices Here but 1 smells of “Cocoa”
After a 2 Min. Steep in Boiling Water Which releases even Greater Aroma
The Liquor Is Golden Brown, I Added 3 Teaspoons of Honey to the Pot.
Yet the Unsweetened Liquor is Boldly Citric and Smoothly Ceylonese.
But I Enjoyed and Recommended the Honey Sweetened.
Again Great Job from ambientqueenie
Keep On Steepin

Splendid! I wouldn’t drink Zeppelinmobile without sweetener, either, and honey sounds delicious. I’m a bit of a sweetener addict when it comes to flavored black teas, unfortunately; I can’t get off the sweet sauce! I can’t do it! :p

One question remains: did you drink this while wearing goggles? Inquiring steampunk minds must want to know.

No Goggles Required, But Used a Gear Driven Pocket Timer to Time the Speep.

The Book of Tea Okakura Kakuzo

The Book of Tea was written by Okakura Kakuzo in the early 20th century. It was first published in 1906, and has since been republished many times. – In the book, Kakuzo introduces the term Teaism and how Tea has affected nearly every aspect of Japanese culture, thought, and life. The book is noted to be accessibile to Western audiences because though Kakuzo was born and raised Japanese, he was trained from a young age to speak English; and would speak it all his life, becoming proficient at communicating his thoughts in the Western Mind. In his book he elucidates such topics as Zen and Taoism, but also the secular aspects of Tea and Japanese life. The book emphasises how Teaism taught the Japanese many things; most importantly, simplicity. Kakuzo argues that this tea-induced simplicity affected art and architecture, and he was a long-time student of the visual arts. He ends the book with a chapter on Tea Masters, and spends some time talking about Sen no Rikyu and his contribution to the Japanese Tea Ceremony.
