drank Lapsang Souchang by Mandala Tea
330 tasting notes

Wow, it has been awhile. 3 months, hey? I think like a lot of the people I follow, I’m slowing down, and trying to be more thoughtful about the tea I keep and drink, instead of trying to have ALL THE TEA. I’ve even weeded out a lot of my teaware (just need to get the weeded into a box and dropped off at goodwill). It feels good to be simple. I do like to post pictures of my tea times on Instagram, and look at some of the folks I follow’s pictures of the same.

So, onto the tea. I’m actually logging a note because I am polishing off the bag. So I wanted one last mention of it before it leaves my cabinet here.

I quite enjoy LS, so I will get more for my cupboard, but I don’t know if it will order this or explore something else again. I will have to see what’s out there.

I actually didn’t have enough left to make a full pot, so I supplemented it with a couple of Dragon Pearls, which is a good match. It does dilute the smokiness, but they are both malty.

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.
