Default Tea, Yerba Mate & Cold Weather

Cool weather has finally struck the Carolinas. Cooling off doesn't mean no more coffee in the morning - it just means:

TEA AND YERBA MATE IN THE AFTERNOONS AND EVENINGS!!!!

(woo hoo)

I broke out the teapot and the neat tea mugs with lids this weekend. Darjeeling leaves are all over the counter and the mate is lined up for a sipping Sunday kind of thing. Special thanks to Seangar and MithShrike for teaching me the joys of green teas and yerba mate.

You be tea?

Lapsong Suchong is my cup o tea. Yerba Mate nice and nutty. I'm a loose tea drinker, usually get my stuff from UPTONs in MA.

I have been using a chai mix with vaniolla soy that just rocks!

I was surprised how much I grew to like mate after just a few cups. I lean to a small amount of honey in mine.

I love Typhoo and PG tips, those british types know what they're doing when it comes to mass produced teas

Twinings has some good ones, the Black Prince or whatever it's called it nice

Default Re: Tea, Yerba Mate & Cold Weather

Made some mate' today that Mithshrike sent me last year. The first couple of times, I made it with too hot of water right away, and got a bit discouraged because it turned out horribly bitter, today, I got a nice smooth mate' from the french press, just had to put enough cold water in the leaves to temper them a little from the hot water.
Good stuff.

Good stuff.
He got me on the program, too. I got to like it real quick like. And after pot #1 I figured out that a pre-stir with cool water and well-off-the-boil water to top up really did matter.

Ah good. More Mateneers.

It's been a little while since I've had mate. I've been trying to avoid the stimulants (heart murmur and TIAs have been bugging me) but I think I'll have some tomorrow.

Everyday - after lunch it is either Chinese Pu Ehr (rose petal), Monkey King or White tea. It is not weather dependent for me.
