It looks like A Southern Season may have closed its brick-and-mortar store, and I can’t tell if they still sell online. (Ashmanra, do you know?) Which is too bad, because I just rediscovered a buried sample of this really nice decaf OP yesterday. I had consumed so much hot liquid due to the ear/throat gunk, I sloshed when I walked and you could see the caffeine buzz coming out of my eyeballs.

Had enough in the packet for one last pot. While there will never be a decaf tea ever that is strong enough to suit me, this one had a little bit of personality. A little soapy (in a good way; I think that’s just a standard decaf personality issue), but somewhat dark and sweet, especially after I let it stew over a tea candle for a couple of hours.

At any rate, it made me feel better and I think I’m finally on the mend. Could be the antibiotics, could be the tea, but I think the real medicine may have been an afternoon in the La-Z-Boy watching episodes of Downton Abbey with Tazo snoozing on my lap.

I slosh all the time with no such excuse. I hope you feel better soon!

And I’m also currently rewatching Downton Abbey! What a perfect show for tea.

Season three. The wedding episode with Maggie Smith and Shirley Maclaine—I chortled all the way through it.

Downton Abbey and The Great British Bake Off are both good medicine.

I haven’t seen Downton Abbey yet, but I am a Bake Off fiend.

YASSSS Bake Off!

I am not sure if they sell online at all, but OH HOW I MISS THEM! It was so hard to lose them, like a neighbor you really, really loved.

This was a great tea. The only thing really close to it for me has been Harney’s Decaffeinated. The plain one, and it just says Decaf on the tin.

Hmm. I’ve never looked. Is Harney’s decaf one that they have mass marketed?

I have only bought it from the website in a tin loose leaf. I am not sure if it is available any other way.

Somebody asked me once when I became a tea junkie; I think it dates back to college when I needed caffeine for a 7 a.m. class but chose not to do coffee. My favorite teapot is a medium-sized Brown Betty given to me by my Mema; the painted flowers are chipping off, but the size and feel is perfect. I rejoice when I get a morning to brew a pot of loose tea starting with a kettle; not a bag and a hot pot.
