Tuesday/ green tea, and black

The teabag is a pyramid-shaped fine nylon mesh, and that’s roasted rice with the green tea. And check out the tag, designed to latch onto the rim of the teacup. How fancy is THAT?

I haven’t tried the black English Breakfast tea yet. The cute little guy on the packaging reminds me of a ‘jelly baby’. (A gummy candy that has been around the UK and South Africa forever, but that never really caught on in the USA. I wonder why not?).

Check out my fancy pants green tea that I bought on Monday, along with some black tea.  I’m trying to revive my liking and taste for green tea that I acquired in China.   The green tea is up against serious competition as my favorite hot beverage : black English Breakfast tea and Starbucks’ medium-roast coffee.  The green tea needs to be steeped for only a minute (or even for only 30 seconds).  It’s fun to let it cool down, and then swallow it in three or four big gulps. Its roasted rice/ green tea after-taste sits on your tongue for a while.
