This is my green tea selection for the day.
The Fragrant Cup is a St. Louis purveyor of fine teas & related products. The owner, Eric Glass believes great tea improves everyone’s day and special occasions. He loves tea, travels to Asia to study and purchase teas, and the first time I talked to Eric, he invited me to his home (where he runs his tea importing & selling business from) and served tea to me as if we were sitting in one of those tea houses in China that David Duckler talks about, sharing his knowledge & tea with me, and it was a real treat. He sent me home with several tea samples, which have all been excellent, and this is one of them.
I’ve enjoyed several 4 oz cups today, brewed gongfu style, and it is delightfully vegetative and buttery. If you’d like to check out Eric’s tea selections and web page, he’s at http://www.fragrantcup.com/aboutus.asp
