Smaug Tea

This week’s tea was inspired by a twitter conversation with @princeofdorknes and @joe_hill. Thanks for the suggestion, guys!

We had some discussion about what base tea would be used in a Smaug tea, but clearly it had to be a DRAGON Well. For those unfamiliar, Dragon Well (aka Longjing, aka Lung Ching) is a green tea from the Zhejiang province in China. Legend has it the tea derives its name from the beneficent dragon said to live in a local well.

Our Smaug tea is a blend of Dragon Well, cinnamon chips, a hint of lapsang souchoung (I only used a single ounce in five pounds of Dragon Well, just enough to give it a little smoky character), some cayenne pepper and organic flavors. It’s a fiery feast for your tastebuds!

We think Captain Mal would appreciate this week’s Tea of the Week. For those of you unfamiliar with genmaicha, a little history: genmaicha was originally the beverage of choice for poor Japanese folk; the toasted rice served to stretch the more expensive sencha. Sounds to me like something you’d see in the outer colonies. TheContinue Reading

Lemon Dreams

I have an odd relationship with chamomile. Chamomile is like the really cute girl that I WANT to like, but she’s so sweet and cloying that I just can’t take her seriously. You know they type: She gets you an anniversary gift for your one week anniversary; wears a t-shirt that professes her love forContinue Reading
