Blissful Harmony | teakruthie

Today was a beautiful day here in Vegas. Mid 70’s, clear sky, light breeze, and like I told my friendly neighbor at the mailboxes, no complaints! So, why not brew nice pot of tea this evening?

It’s lighter than the Organic Orange from my last post on tea. I over steeped and it went too dark. So, it’s a stronger as usual. You can see by the photos that it’s darker than the orange Ceylon.

I drank that all last winter not knowing if I was making it right or wrong. I was basically making it like they did in China and throw some leaves in the bottom of the cup. The tea was “ok”. It had a subtle seaweed like taste to it. I got used to it and brewed and drank the whole brick. Over this past summer I was able to keep my apartment a little cooler and I continued to drink tea.
