I have had a huge bag of this sitting around for a while. It kinda got lost in the tea shuffle.

So for a while I have been trying to drink a lot of lemon-ginger water. Just basic glass of water with slice of lemon and slice of fresh ginger in it. It tastes good and I have a feeling it keeps me somewhat alive.

I decided to brew up some of this and try it I place of water with the lemon and ginger,

I used 6 tsp of buckwheat for 2 L of boiling water. I steeped for 5 ish, probably more like 7ish minutes. Then threw in the fridge. After it cooled I put it in my glass with my already kind of used lemon and ginger.

It actually tastes pretty good. The lemon and ginger are very subtle and it works really good with the roasted buckwheat flavour. It adds a but of depth and sweetness. I thinks it works well like this but I think if the lemon was stronger it would not work out so well.

Glad I rediscovered this one.

I am a lifetime tea lover.

I did foray into the world of coffee for a period of time, but I returned to my true love. I still, however, enjoy a good cup of java.

My all time favorite tea is Earl Grey, which I drink every morning, the stronger the bergamot the better. I definitely prefer natural oil of bergamot to artificial flavouring.

I mostly like black and dark oolong teas. My current favs are Fujian blacks, Keemun and Assams, and Wuyi oolongs. I gravitate towards anything with lychee in it. I also drink a lot of herbal blends but am wary of hibiscus. I do not favour mate, or pu’erh tea, although I have found a few blends that I like. (I so badly want to like straight pu’erh tea but it all tastes gross to me. I keep trying though). Rooibos, green and white teas fall somewhere in the middle. I find myself gravitating towards heavily roasted oolongs and teas from Paris/France based companies.

I love iced teas and cold brews.

My current tea goal is to make the perfect cup of chai from scratch – almost there…I think.

I am in love with the whole experience of tea.
