TEA TIME TUESDAY
I had FIVE cups of tea yesterday. Five. It was rainy, windy, and cold and tea seemed like a great idea several times during the day.
When I was in Oregon in June, I was lucky enough to spend some time in the STASH Tea Store. I bought as many of the flavored teas as I thought I might like. My small town grocery does not stock much in the more exotic tea flavors, although I have to admit, they have an amazing selection of brands compared to when I first moved here about four years ago.
Yesterday's teas included some of those flavored tisanes as well as a decaf chai and some of that green tea I discovered.
The first time I made the green tea in a small one serving pot, I had the water too hot. Did you know green tea must not be made with boiling water? No wonder I never found one that tasted good to me. I do not believe I ever made it correctly.
This makes tea making almost TOO easy, doesn't it? How do you suppose the ancients made green tea without this contraption?
