Tea and working in the garden, transplanting this and that, digging here and there. Then more tea.
This is a custom blend of my own invention: 60% Home Store Pu-erh and 40% Lapsang Strong Smoke, both from Seven Cups.
This blend will stand — as one might expect from the combination — very long steepings: 3 minutes for the first 2-3 and 4-6 minutes for the second 2-3.
I find it’s the perfect tea for cold weather, damp weather, and cold and damp weather.
Seven Cups is an American tea company based in Tucson, Arizona. We source traditional, handmade Chinese teas directly from the growers and tea masters who make them, and we bring those teas back from China to share with people everywhere.
