Last week just in time for posting Tea on Tuesday my DH severed our satellite cable rendering our internet connection DEAD. (It was my fault…if fault must be had, because he was tilling a spot I selected for my new herb bed.) It took a day to round-up a private contractor to replace the cable and get our system working again.
I planned on posting bright and early today, but our connection speed is next to nothing. Today it might as well be dead. Our connection speed has been right up there with pouring molasses on a frigid day. It’s almost time for supper and while our turkey burgers simmer in barbecue sauce I’m hopeful I can get a tea post done.
My tea of choice has been Oolong.
Oolong tea is produced by Fujian Province of China. Oolong tea has been described as “Yu Xiang Hui Wei ” as it goes through so many different production stages in order to generate a good flavor and aroma. The tea consists of several dozens of kinds of leaves that have different flavors and aromas due to differences in the leaves, the production area, and the harvest time. Among them, Tie Guan Yin, Shui Xian, and Oolong are well known, many renowned oolong teas are produced in Fujian Province. Oolong tea produced in the Province is exported throughout the world as the tea that is representative of China, the home of tea. (oolongtea.org)
Pictured with my tea is a sassy, spring hostess apron I’m giving away on my blog. The pocket is filled with extras. I hope you will take a moment and comment on my “Okay Already” Springfever Giveaway for a chance to win.
I hope everyone has had a wonderful Tea Tuesday. Mine was spent hanging out with my firstborn grandchild. She’s 17 and a blessing to behold to this old girl. If you love tea check out the other tea Tuesday ladies starting with Kimmie at Art In Red Wagons the home of Tea on Tuesday.
Until next time…
The cup of tea on arrival at a country house is a thing which, as a rule, I particularly enjoy. I like the crackling logs, the shaded lights, the scent of buttered toast, the general atmosphere of leisured coziness. ~ The Code Of The Woosters
