Tea of the Day: Pu-Erh by Golden moon tea

Description: The most widely taken tea in Asia, this mysterious varietal is aged in secret caves for several years where it takes on a sweet, earthy aroma. It is also excellent for health

Tea comes in a little pressed block of tea, shaped something like a very tiny bird’s nest, wrapped in paper

Smells very earthy with a hint of a savory and sweet scent

Expands hugely when steeped, you would not want to try to put this into a tea ball!

Liquor is a chocolatey dark red-brown in the cup

Smells a bit like roasted vegetables when steeped

Savory-sweet flavor; adding sugar deepens the flavor and brings out some chocolate notes previously hidden

Tea rating: 4.5/5

Snow comes down, wind rushes by, brushing fingers along the walls and windows, stirring the wind chime: “come outside, come outside” it seems to say; “come see”

Part of me is drawn to that sound, I can see myself walking along, snow swirling around me, getting caught in my hair and eyelashes…

…but it’s also quite dark, the wind blew in dark clouds and there is nary a star to light my way, so the prudent thing would probably be to stay inside

This also seems like a three tea night; as in I will probably drink at least two more cups of tea before the night is over

Those of you reading this who are also experiencing similar blustery weather, a toast:

May your night pass in peace, filled with hot tea and warm snuggles with fur babies and loved ones and your tomorrow dawn clear and beautiful on a well-rested face

“So the small things came into their own: small acts of helping others, if one could; small ways of making one’s own life better: acts of love, acts of tea, acts of laughter. Clever people might laugh at such simplicity, but, she asked herself, what was their own solution?”
― Alexander McCall Smith, The Good Husband of Zebra Drive
