I like to drink tea once in a while. If I'm sick then I will drink tea, and not coffee. I love Echinacea, green tea, chamomile, and I love to try different flavored teas. I use regular lipton tea for the summer to make a big pitcher of cold ice tea. I only buy bag teas. I tried the loose teas but I don't know how to measure properly.

What teas do you like, and do you have a special way of making it?

TEA'S SECOND DAWN
By Dr. Richard S. Kirby


There is a peace which comes with Tea
although the day's not done:
the peace which halts the tidal sea
of tasks, stress, fights unwon.


We interrupt that tide this way
and make a new day start:
Dawn comes a second time to say,
"Live this 'new day' with heart.


The Teapot stands, the sun shines out
the quietness takes hold;
the calming liquid leaves the spout
as Spring's last days grow old.


The sounds of silence still the mind
the biscuit calms the hand
Our thinking goes from cruel to kind
We sink into our land.

I like most herbal teas. I also like black tea.

Organic teas are better. I have tried different teas, and I swear I'm not one of those crazy people, it does taste different!

Jasmine is good. Earl Grey when I spend time with my mum: tea time, sunshine! She takes out her china and the lil treats, and it's all good.

Here is the best way to have tea IMO:
Boil water in a pot.
Add loose black tea or combo of herbs w/ black tea.
Let it seep for a lil while, strain out the leaves,
pour tea in jumbo plastic cup (like the ones for lil kids)
or a ceramic bowl
add lots of sugar
and enjoy !
If the tea is chai; add milk. Feels wholesome.

I like Oregon Chai.

A local ice cream shop has the most absolutely divine chai tea icecream... it's not like I don't like ice cream, it's fine, I like it, but this stuff was a whole 'nother level...

Hmm, that's a little off-topic though.

I grew up in Minneapolis and Good Earth tea (from The Good Earth restaurant) was my absolute favorite, stocked up to bring to college and would re-stock on visits home. Then they started selling in grocery stores and stuff. Didn't seem as good. Don't know if they even make it any more, haven't seen it in forever.

Mostly, I'll just go with the store brands - Safeway, Kroeger. Once in a while, to really relax, I'll brew up an nice, smokey cup of Lapsang Souchong. No description will do it justice.

Oh no, everything was fine until you got to the plastic cup. I don't like to use plastic cups.

Tea Monkeys


Many people have asked for a story on the origins of tea. I haven't found too much online about this subject. I did overhear an old man tell this version when I was shopping in a local herbal shop:

It was autumn time. The air was starting to chill and the leaves were turning brown. A taoist monk was taking a break from reading his scriptures and meditations. He put a pot of water on the fire to warm the room, then he walked though the garden to watch the monkeys settle in for the cold season ahead.

For the past year, he watched a monkey family gather certain foods at particular times of the day. This time, the monkeys were eating dried flower buds and leaves. The taoist monk, amused, picked the same buds and leaves the monkeys had chosen. He was surprised to find that the flowers were sill fragrant and the leaves were sticky with natural oils. The monk went back inside to where his water was boiling. He put his handful of flowers and leaves in a small bowl, then pours hot water over them. The fragrance released from the flower buds filled the air. The leaves changed the clear water to a deep amber liquor. The monk was so enticed by the steaming liquid that he sipped slowly his first cup of tea.


My favorite tea is Ti Kwan Yin. What's yours?http://firehorseportfolio.com/tea/parts/teacupsm.gif By Colette Chooey
