Fortnum & Mason Advent Day 20 (sachets)

I was not sure I wanted a green tea with toast and jam today but I went with it because the tins advent is also a green today. It was not a disappointment at all. They suggest resteep ing this one and I did. It had good strength and was very nice with food, not as smoky as some gunpowder green I have tried and pretty smooth and easy drinking. Enough Heft to enjoy with food, even a sweet jelly.

Oddly – my finger has been hurting since last night. I have Heberden’s nodes and they hurt when they are forming and a new one in forming on my right index finger. I even mentioned it before and winced this morning. After having my tea, I could barely feel it. Is green tea THAT anti-inflammatory? Or was it just time for it to get better?

I have good memories of this gunpowder green! Something about it is soothing and never failed to make me feel better – maybe tied into the anti-inflammatory properties?

I really enjoyed it this morning, in spite of my initial feeling that I really wished I was having a black tea for breakfast! I should probably put this on my list for the next Fortnum order as there are a few things there I want to try. (The chilli and tomato spread was delicious.)

I am a music teacher, tutor, and former homeschool mom (25 years!) who started drinking loose leaf tea about fourteen years ago! My daughters and I have tea every day, and we are frequently joined by my students or friends for “tea time.” Now my hubby joins us, too. His tastes have evolved from Tetley with milk and sugar to mostly unadorned greens and oolongs.

We have learned so much history, geography, and culture in this journey.
