What’s Your Tea Mood?
Tea is said to help your mood, to stimulate, and to calm. It is supposed to enhance the mood you’re in or help you turn that mood 180 degrees around — from depressed or very sad to happy and in a positive frame of mind. But that’s not what a “tea mood” is. Your tea… Continue reading

Matcha vs Dust-in-a-Teabag
Someone asked the other day why dust in a bag is considered bad but powdered matcha is considered good, even premium. In other words, if whole or broken leaves are supposed to be better, why is matcha an exception? Great question, and one to which I flippantly answered: “Marketing and tradition!” Well, that question deserves… Continue reading

Just when you think you’ve heard about every kind of teapot out there, along comes the veilleuse-théière. When people know you are interested in tea and all things related, they start telling you about this and that — a tea room you gotta try, a new tea on the market, and of course a teapot… Continue reading
Can Green Tea Shrink Tumors?
I tend to be cautiously skeptical when it comes to the many and varied health claims for tea. For my money tea is just fine as a beverage and, if it happens to benefit my health in any way, I’ll take that as a nice fringe benefit. As always, I caution the reader to approach… Continue reading
