Connoisseur Of The Finer Things

My Tea 2010 calendar today includes the statement that green tea drinkers are connoisseurs of the finer things in life.

green tea with teapot and tea leaves I don’t know about that, but perhaps green tea drinkers are more health conscious or have a more finely tuned palate.  Do green tea drinkers have different personality traits than black tea drinkers?  Are they more sensitive or refined?  It’s not a question that I’ll ponder for very long while I enjoy my full bodied black tea. 

I was planning to share photos of Golden Assam Rare Exquisite loose tea that I received for Christmas, but unfortunately I’m starting the New Year with computer glitches and can’t retrieve my photos from my memory card.  This full bodied Assam tea has a delicious flavor, with a pleasant aroma and a lovely gold tinged copper color.  It takes the addition of milk very well and I will also try it with a little honey later (although I am trying to cut out sweeteners as damage control from holiday overindulgence).

What Christmas gift teas have you been enjoying?  I’d love to hear about them.

I have been enjoying some peach oolong and some raspberry flavored green tea I received for Christmas. I'm also going to *try* to drink the puerh I have regularly to see if it really and truly helps with weight loss!

Well I didn't receive anything tea related this year, which is the first time in years, but I DID receive a wonderful new blender. So I'll be posting tea recipes using it and can't wait.

First of all, that is the cutest tea pot I've seen in a while. I have been having chais, yum, so perfect for cold and snow and gray. Got some blooming teas but they smell like burnt plastic - not conducive to even a first sip. Oh and a very nice pineapple - Hawaii for me, I wish.

I also didn't get anything tea related this Christmas... but that's ok because I got a new sweing machine, wooohooo! I'm so excited! I've been using every excuse to go play with it, why even this morning I simply HAD to hem my pants before I went to work. Had to, just had to.
Happy New Year!

Over the Christmas season I purchased several teas - a strawberry tea, licorice spice tea and a loose leaf christmas spice tea. I really like the strawberry and the licorice. The christmas blend not so much. I did get a new cup from my daughter and my husband gave me a gift certificate to Bernideen's.

I wholeheartedly agree that green tea drinkers are connoisseurs of the finer things in life! Here, here! Of course, I could be a wee bit biased... *grin*

I do love tea. Period. It's just that green tea has become the ultimate in drinking pleasure for me, far superseding black, red, and herbals. It didn't happen overnight, though, so I suspect my taste buds did become more cultured over time. What do you think?

Breathe deeply,
Laugh with abandon,
Love wholly,
Eat well.
