I drink the spectrum of teas daily. It's usually a bit of something green to start and then, by afternoon, a good strong cup of black. A tasty oolong is often in order, especially if someone stops by the tea studio or house that will share some infusions with me. If it's a rough week, I go straight to black first thing in the morning and steep a pot of green later in the day. Herbal tea is my go to for after meals for digestion and before bedtime for calming effects. I wonder what your tea schedule looks like. Email me and let me know.
Recently, a writer colleague and friend, Sara Dickerman, mentioned T Project's smoky tea called Smoke On the Water. She was referring to this being one of her favorite morning brews. However, since she's on her cleanse and blogging about it, she is avoiding all teas but herbal. I'm not opposed to a bit of green tea on a cleanse, as they are so high in anti-oxidants and other good components for our body. Here's Sara's post which could inspire you to join her fabulous Bon Appetit Cleanse for Food Lovers, or try out my Smoky tea in the meantime:
Great minds think alike, shall we say? Karen O (Of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs) has released her solo album (overshadowed by iPhone6 release on 9.914) which has one of my favorite Doors ballads on it: Indian Summer. T Project also did a version of the song, in tea of course. A delicious masala chai perfect for NOW, either iced or hot - All organic, this romantic tea "Indian Summer," always stops the clock for me. Order tea from my website or tap me on the shoulder.
If you're ever in Montreal, tea drinker or not, I urge you to stop by Camellia Sinensis, my favorite tea shop on this continent. Here, you'll find a selection of over 100 teas, each carefully sourced by the owners of the business. I studied for 2 days straight, cupping and smelling and learning more than I could've ever expected. Who knew there were so many varieties of Darjeelings, Kevin G's (in photo) favorite teas. T Project will be carrying a delicious single estate Darjeeling in late September. Stay Tuned.
Oregon has SO much to offer: deserts, mountains, rain forests, beaches & T PROJECT!!! Here is my dear friend Amanda's photo - have tea will travel to a secret remote spot in Central Oregon. She took some Smoke On the Water to keep her energy high in this gorgeous place. Smoke on the Water is our pine-smoked organic Chinese black tea. I spice it up gently and hand it to you just like that. Winter or summer, Amanda is always up for this rich earthy big black tea.
