Tea with Robin & Churchmouse Tea!

Robin, my new tea buddy, and I met for lunch.  It was so fun!!!  We talked tea, knitting, and all sorts of fun things.  I can't wait to do it again.  We also traded teas.    Robin gave me some fun Smith Tea mixes that she had gotten from Churchmouse Yarn and Tea Shop.  I had two cups back at work of the Spring mix, and then more of the Summer mix in the evening at home.  LOVED IT!

We met at Heartland Point in Orrville and I had a really good Chai Latte.  It really made up for the one I had a few months ago.  This one was strong and oh so good!!!

Here is what Robin brought me.....

SPRING- a green tea
Churchmouse Spring Tea (Green)
Say hello to Spring, the fourth in our collection of seasonal tea blends by the incomparable Portland-based blender, Steve Smith.

Delicately flavored, this blend starts with Chinese full leaf green tea, and adds hyssop, lemon myrtle, elderflower and a bit of jasmine green. Think fresh starts, new endeavors, freshening up. Sure to please the green tea veteran and coax the beginner into a second cup. A tea to drink generously!

Brew gently for 2-3 minutes in water that is not too hot (bring water to a boil and let it sit for a couple of minutes), 175° is ideal.

 SUMMER an herbal tea:

Master teamaker Steve Smith created a perfectly balanced herbal blend just for us. Carefully chosen from around the world, not one of the herbs speaks too loudly—so it can be a little hard to put your finger on why it tastes so good.

Light lemony notes of fragrant hyssop, verbena and lemon myrtle mingle with Egyptian chamomile and Oregon spearmint. It's a delicious caffeine-free cuppa on a cool night. Add ice and a little spritzer for a summer cooler.
I can't wait to try Winter and Autumn- they are both a black tea.
