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'm hunkered under the car with a pair of tweezers trying to remove these plastic clips holding that plate prisoner, and all of a sudden I hear, "Caw caw. Caw caw." I glance up and there are 3 buzzards circling me and the car. I know, that they know, that I'm not a car fixing type.
Not all "tea" is tea. It seems that if you can pour hot water on it, and drink it a few minutes later, it's marketed as tea. In my opinion, this creates a lot of confusion for people new to tea drinking. Or, maybe I'm just a snob.
Puerhs - I've had puerhs that were steeped up to 18 times! No joke. That's 18, as in the legal voting age.
It is my firm belief that those steep times are simply a jumping off point for negotiations!
