I think the best part of waking up each morning is walking to the kitchen counter and thinking ahhh what tea shall I drink today? Get the kettle going, tea cups out (or just a big mug), and a bite of something sweet. It’s a morning ritual. Notes on a few teas I’ve been lucky to try this week. 

1. Pu’erh from Red Blossom Tea Company (a must visit tea shop if you are in San Francisco).

2.  Noelle/Josh have been brewing me ginseng oolong in the mornings. Thanks, guys!

3.  Little shots of Uji-Shimizu at Ippodo just before flying NYC -> SF

4. The soothing Marrakech Mint from the folks at Blackbird Tea Co. It’s a green tea blend with both peppermint and spearmint. Also pictured, the Chai Rojo!

5. Kat brought Lupicia’s Sakura Vert from Japan (thank you!) when we met earlier this summer. Salted cherry blossoms and green tea, what a lovely combination. Been pairing this with butter mochi ^_^
