Upon arriving at my coworker’s apartment, one of the first things I noticed was a collection of beautiful English-style tea cups on a shelf in the kitchen. Her roommate is a tea head! I was shown the stash in the closet and the selection screamed ‘Steepster Member!’ at me. So much loose leaf. She said I could drink anything I wanted, but I remained modest in my selection and only had one of her teas over the weekend. I picked this Douglas Fir Spring Tips because I’ve never seen it around.

We have Doug Fir here in California, but in most of the forests I’ve been in Northern California, Doug Fir is mixed with other tree species. This tea had a damp, dewey quality that reminded me of a moist Cascadian pure Doug Fir forest. It had a sweet fir aroma and tastes of fir, light earth and citrus and nectar sweetness. Wow, what a comforting and refreshing treat for a cold morning on the coast. I have to find this tea.

Supple fir tips. So good.

Mastress Alita

Oh man, I would totally drink that.

Ima go searching for it in the city before I move to avoid shipping costs. If I find it, do you want me to pick you up a tin of bags?

derk

That goes for Bluegreen, too.

I am on a tea hiatus at the moment, part of a quite strict New Year’s Resolution that I’ve already put into effect. If you get some, and at some time in the future when my collection no longer makes me feel terrible about myself and my ordering/trading embargo has been lifted, I would happily take a single teabag to try it. :-)

I assume you found me through some dodgy websites that installed viruses on your computer. Don’t worry, I’m here as your “customer support” ;) call girl. Beautiful escort at your service. I will accompany you virtually to online casinos in Indonesia. I even have a stash of male enhancement supplements from various European countries in my purse. Can I interest you in some CBD? I have a playlist for our evenings together ;) Should things go south I know about abortion services in Vietnam. Otherwise, I have friends all over the world who run daycares and elite schools. We can have our matrimonial services provided in India, but not before we have an astrological consultation. One of my many real estate agent friends can get us a luxury apartment, or should you choose to buy a house for our little family, I come from a long line of roofers, asphalters, garage door repairers, plumbers, electricians and exterminators should anything go wrong. I even once knew a cremation service available. Till death do us part, am I right?

Tea habits:

Among my favorites are all teas Nepali, sheng puerh, Wuyi yancha, Taiwanese oolong, a variety of black (red) teas from all over, herbal tisanes. I keep a few green and white teas on hand. Shou puerh is a cold weather brew. Tiny teapots and gaiwans are my usual brewing vessels when not preparing morning cups western style and pouring into my work thermos. Friend of teabags.
