Today I’m getting back to normal. . . .I haven’t blogged about a tea in a while it feels like, so its time to get back to a routine again. Time to get back to my norm of drinking insane amounts of tea each and every day. Over the weekend, I did a massive spring like cleaning and cleaned out my tea stash. I pulled out a few I can’t wait to feature this week. Today tho, I thought I’d chat about an amazing tea company called Conundrum Tea. (I just love their logo!)
Conundrum Tea (based out of Colorado) is a fairly new company to me and so far, I have had nothing but wonderful experiences with their tea. Their Jungle Fire Assam had me “oohhing and ahhing” over my cuppa the whole day. I even had a co-worker try the tea and she thought it was heavenly. Today I wanted to check out their Jade Kukicha.
Jade Kukicha is a green tea that is made up of stems from green tea leaves. (Kukicha means stems.) I couldn’t wait to brew this delight up and see what it was all about. The dry leaf mixture reminded me a lot of matcha. A more intense green tea smell with rich grassy notes.
First sip in and this tea matches its description perfectly! Rich grassy notes with a hint of sweetness mixed in with a bit of a citrus twist. Smooth and delicious. Exactly what I needed after drinking several cups of coffee this morning. Simple yet so satisfying. I would even say palate cleansing. I feel refreshed after drinking a cuppa of this and am excited to see what the second infusion will bring. As weird as this will sound, this tea really reminds me of a sweet seaweed flavor and it is marvelous! One that I’m sure I’ll be craving later in the week.

Completely unrelated to tea-I have to admit something here. . .until recently. . . I had never watched Dr. Who. Yep. I am a self-proclaimed geek and I had never watched Dr. Who. I know. Shame on me. But that has been completely rectified. Jason and I started to binge watch the show and I am madly in love with this beauty of a show. Seriously. I get it now. I don’t know how I officially become a Whovian, but I want to know how! Tomorrow I’m hoping to review a tea from Geeky Teas that is called Bad Wolf. I’m quite excited about it.
Hope everyone is having a wonderful Wednesday!
