I save green teas, largely, for Sunday afternoons, when I have time for one more cuppa than usual but don’t need to amp myself up on lots of caffeine.

This was the first one that shuffled to the the top of the basket. It’s my second go-round with these cute little yarn balls. I still prefer a steep longer than the recommended 1 minute—-I’ve been doing 90 seconds-2 minutes, but when I do, it’s light and rich (are those terms contradictory?) and silky. Not a bit vegetabley.

Somebody asked me once when I became a tea junkie; I think it dates back to college when I needed caffeine for a 7 a.m. class but chose not to do coffee. My favorite teapot is a medium-sized Brown Betty given to me by my Mema; the painted flowers are chipping off, but the size and feel is perfect. I rejoice when I get a morning to brew a pot of loose tea starting with a kettle; not a bag and a hot pot.
