When I was sixteen, I lived in Japan for a few months with an exchange family. While I was there my host mother would ply me with green tea whenever I asked for water. To this day almost ten years later, I drink at least two cups of green tea everyday. I left Japan with very fond memories of my family and a rather hefty caffeine addiction.
I firmly believe that there is no case of the blues that a good cup of tea can't fix. I'm not fussy, I'll drink any tea, whether its sencha, genmaicha or lady grey. My tea obsession has ebbs and flows, a few years ago I loved chamomile, rose green tea, then white tea, now I have an affection for a frothy soy chai latte.
One of the main problems that I have with tea, is finding a nice selection of quality flavours in pre packed bags. Loose leaves, are lovely when you have the time to prepare them, however it would be nice to throw a few bags of my favourite variety into my purse for my travels.
Never having been a girl to settle, I calmly thought about the situation, and have decided to make my own. I will be testing and perfecting my own concoction of chai, rose green tea and a night time brew. Hopefully this will be something I will finish within the next fortnight or so.
