I think I have gotten a tea high from this. Or more like a tea buzz. I’m giddy and much happier than I’ve been all day. Then again, maybe it was the atmosphere/company.

I picked this out to try at Cuppa, and Ty warned me that it was very smoky. And then said I should try a cup before I had a pot. I agreed, since I’ve been noticing that most people don’t like Lapsang Souchongs because of their “campfire” taste.

I, apparently, am not most people.

I loved this. It reminds me of my Aunt Della’s house, back in the hollers of eastern KY in the fall. Sitting on her screened porch at dusk, swinging in the green porch swing, listening to the crickets. And smelling the smoke from people burning the fall leaves. This tea smells just like that. And tastes just like that. It’s rich and smoky and fall. Instant comfort. Must buy some for home when I go back (which will be in the morning).

My love of tea started in 2001, whilst in an internship in London, England. I shared an office with a lovely man who would make me a cup of tea every morning without asking me if I even wanted it. I drink my tea neat now, because I’ve yet to find the sugar/milk combination that lives up to Pablo’s.

I drink any and all kinds of tea, and love trying new brands/varieties/flavors.
