Glorious New Teas

We went to Gong Fu Tea today with my family…and my dad bought me some tea for my birthday! Yippeeee! Here is the run down:

Pacific Breeze: My all-time favorite. This is what I drink everyday. It makes me infinitely happy. It smells so amazing. Here is their description: We can only describe this extraordinary blend as “eye-popping”! This tea is an exotic mélange of only the finest organic ingredients – Oolong tea leaves, wild roses, jasmine blossoms, lemon myrtle and natural citrus oils that come together to produce a beautiful, dry, and flavorful brew that will linger on the palate. This tea is an experience that must be tried.

Blue Spring Oolong: I got this one because it has a unique look to it…kind of like little turds. hee hee! The owner’s wife said it’s her favorite…so I just had to try it out. I love oolong tea. Description: The leaves for this oolong are grown at high elevations in Fujian Province, China — amidst a landscape that is home to the ideal breezes and humidity for producing quality teas. The partially oxidized leaves are hand-rolled in a licorice powder, causing them to take on the appearance of small pebbles. When brewed, the liquor emits a delicately sweet aroma and provides a pleasantly peculiar, lingering finish. This is perhaps the most unique oolong tea we have ever experienced.

Gobi Green with Citron: This delicate green tea with a hint of citrus and orange flowers will provide a gentle awakening to the new day. After a few cups of this unique blend, you will find your adventurous spirit exploring paths that are often less traveled.

Yum! Does anyone want to come have a cup of tea with me?!

    ME. I drank coffee in high school, but quickly abandoned it when I realized that drinking is really doesn’t do me much good. Recently I’ve really gotten into tea… I’m going to Chinatown this week to search out some really great Asian loose-leaf tea to use in my new French press! Yay!

    Wow. I love your blog. We share a lot of the same interests.

    I love what you wrote about tea.

    I’m curious…what kind of tea pot do you use to boil water and to steep (two different ones or the same? Maybe you mentioned in your blog and I missed it?)

    Also, what kind of water do you use? I recently read the amount of oxygen in water is important to the taste of tea so fresh (i.e. spring or tap water is best and bottled water may compromise the tea).

Words to Eat By

"It is easier to change a man's religion than to change his diet." -Margaret Mead

"I don't understand why asking people to eat a well-balanced vegetarian diet is considered drastic, while it is medically conservative to cut people open and put them on cholesterol lowering drugs for the rest of their lives." - Dean Ornish, MD

“Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson
