Gorgegous Spring day 76 degrees

Spring is in the air, ice tea made with White Ginger Orange Peach, and left Who would have thought that Wisconsin would have such lovely weather. Thanks God :) Still sipping Kombucha Tea, I think it works, feel great, but why wouldn't you feel great with this weather. Happy St. Patricks Day, and March Madness has taken its place, my bracket is devastated. Go Kansas!  Finishing the day with Milk Oolong and preparing to bike to church tomorrow in protest to high gas.

Another Warm Day in the Bay

Wow, 70 degrees in March. Outdoor furniture, and sipping a Yunnan Gold in limited supply.  Lots of  Non Profit groups coming by for contributions, give and it shall be given unto you.  What's your favorite hot water heater? Have you descaled it lately?  I descale my Zojirushi's at least twice a month when I notice build up on the screen.  Found a great company Frontier, I believe they sell bulk citric acid that works wonders.  Good water, and clean vessels makes for a great cup of tea.  Bubble Tea and Sweet Tea becoming popular with the lovely weather.  Vote for Tea with Wheatley for the next cash mob on Kenosha Cash Mob, like them on Facebook and join in.

Feels like Spring

Tea of the day Golden Tip Pu-erh, Sweet tea is popular with the nice weather.  Water, use spring its the best.  Try this, pour a glass of water out of the tap and a glass of spring and notice the difference. I was contemplating should I even give the plants and animals tap? Things that make you go ummh.  Reading, "Steeped in History the Art of Tea", interesting, two varieties of tea plants, Assam is the one the Brits stole from China and produced in India.  I really enjoy the different Assam's, sorry Oolongs I'll be back soon.  Interesting link about serving tea:, Can you imagine a guest asking for cream or sugar when he arrives to the table :)

It's Friday once again

Hello again Tea Followers,

I am making a vow to those who follow me to write at least once a day when open.  It seems that time flys when your having fun, it's been a week.  Today I am writing about one of the most important things to making tea, water. I just finished reading "The Art of Tea", and it devoted multiple pages on the best water. And yes rushing spring water was the most favored. I by accident or without knowledge, only brew my tea beverages with Nicolet Spring water, official Green Bay Packer water. 

Thanks Dr. Oz, your show this week on teas that help boost weight loss brought new converts to the shop.  Pu-erh, a fermented and aged prized tea from China, that is often aged in caves, two cups.
White tea, my favorite to start the day, two cups at lunch. And Bilberry, which I don't have yet, two cups in the evening. 

The Kombucha Tea is coming along great, more than I can drink! Bring your jar, mug container or whatever and mentioned you heard about it on my blog and get a free cup.

Young tea drinkers, thanks for your patronage, it's super watching you explore the world of tea.
Seasoned drinkers, thanks for the pleasure of great conversation of times past. Thank God, I am not the only one to see Berlin Wall before it came down. Hoorah.

Til we chat again,
Ron W

TGIF Morning Tea

Hello fellow tea imbibers, my KT is coming along fine, two additional flavors, working on ginger and pomegranate.  Sipping 4-8 Oz's of the mother batch daily has trimmed my waist line and now acquiring a taste for the bitter grog. Wonder why the first swig makes me light headed, so little alcohol it should not matter.  Tea of choice in addition to the KT, Golden Tip Pu-erh, which too requires gaining a taste for as well. A blast of winter is on its way, stay warm and enjoy your tea for the day.
