The instructions on the tin say to bring to just below a rolling boil, which seems too hot for a white and green blend to me. So I watched my kettle like a hawk til it got to about 186 and then snatched it off the base and poured.

Turned out pretty good sweetened with some Splenda and then iced down.

I am drinking it while I update my tea inventory here on Steepster since it seems to have gotten waaaaay off. Buy Nothing Summer is over, and it’s time to plan for some new tea purchases :) But I want to make sure I know what I have and try to drink some of the more ignored stuff first – like this tea!

When I was a very young child, I swallowed an ice cube whole. It got stuck in my throat, and my mother had me drink hot tea to melt it away. That started a love affair with tea that has never abated.

I dabbled with Celestial Seasonings and other grocery store teabags for awhile, in my young and foolish days. But a few years ago, I received a tea of the month subscription from Adagio, and I found that there was a whole other world of tea out there that I had never experienced.

I love drinking tea, and I love the personal ceremony of making a glass or pot of tea for myself. It’s like a meditation.
