by Audrea Fink Recently, I have been making Kombucha; a fermented tea drink. I was told by my naturopath that I should increase my consumption of matcha, herbal tea and kombucha. So, like every other average American, I'm only following through on 1 of the 3 recommendations. As I've said before, I think herbal tea & matcha are for the birds, yo. I don't know why I thought that if I didn't like matcha or herbal tea, that I would like fermented tea. I do like the idea of fermentation and adding probiotics to my diet and I am a big fan...
I wouldn't say that I'm the J.K. Rowling of tea journalling, but it has definitely become a healthy habit for me over the past couple of years. If you have a wicked tea habit, I highly suggest that you journal.
Puerhs - I've had puerhs that were steeped up to 18 times! No joke. That's 18, as in the legal voting age.
I mean, when I traveled, I was the snob that packed my own tea. I'm not anti teabag. I'm anti crap tea and more often than not I had a hard time finding decent tea.
I was really set back by one persons take on the situation: "When an industry has to educate its customers to enjoy the product you know it's in trouble." Wait, what? Did this guy just say that? In public? For others to read?
