Tea of the morning…..

And that is about all the tea I drink anymore. I used to drink at least three 24 oz pots a day. However, a kidney stone in August changed that. So far keeping it to one pot a day, with the occasional second pot has kept me on track. Yes, I do still pay attention to what is going on around here, just not quite as closely as when I could drink tea with abandon!

My usual morning tea of late is Malachi McCormick from Harney. Today, I was ready for a change. This is one I came across this morning in my stash I will probably never finish. I have only a few more pots left of this one, and with good reason. It is a great example of a well balanced Keemun…..not too smokey, not too astringent, slight cocoa notes, and just perfectly warming me up today.

Today is a big day. It is the third of four holiday concerts for my kids, tonight being the HS Holiday Band/Jazz Band Concert. My DD, a freshman, plays the flute and electric bass. It is her debut as the bassist for the HS Jazz Band. She has been playing the bass for about 2.5 years, and this is the whole reason she started playing….. She is very excited! :D Anyway, however you celebrate the season, I wish you blessed time with those you love, and safe travels getting there!

Usual teapot method.

I had 2 kidney stones a couple of years ago within 6 months and read about the tea thing too. Didn’t quit the tea though. I think the fact that I was eating LOTS of Kale and other greens and under tremendous stress for a long time is what did me in. I cut down on the kale, and the stress. Kept the tea! Not stones since then.


Thanks for the pointer, Bonnie. I am pretty sure it was too much kale and raw spinach in my case, but the pain was so horrible that I am slowly working back up on the tea….


Nice to see you back- I was wondering where you were :)

I had been eyeing this one based on Upton’s description and took the plunge and bought a full bag after reading SimplyJenW’s tasting notes on it. I made it for breakfast this morning and am very glad I added it to my (real-life) cupboard! It’s right up my Keemun alley: toasty rather than smoky, and soooo good to start the day with. This will be my breakfast choice on many a winter morning, I am sure!

I am so glad you like this one…..I am drinking it right now, too!


Me too — I actually made a second pot of it and brought some to work with me in my thermal mug. I think that tells you how much I like this one. I couldn’t tear myself away from it!
