This song comes from on of my favorite albums that The Ventures did called Ventures in Space. It just has such an unique and interesting sound to it. It leans from classic surf rock sound, to a dark, creepy, eerie or almost orchestral sound. One of the most iconic songs from the album is, “The Twilight Zone” which was used for the TV series. One interesting thing about this album is that all of the weird sounds heard on the album were not made with electronics, but were instead all done by instruments. That is something that you don’t come across often in this digital age and shows the true ingenuity that was The Ventures. If you want to listen to an out of this world sounding album I would check this one out.
This is one of Verdant’s staple green tea that is made by the He family. Their tea, grown between the slopes of Taoist holy Mountain Laoshan and the ocean is shaded by mist helping it grow sweet and rich. Currently they have the fresh spring picked version up for sale. I received mine from their Classic Tea of the Month Club Box, along with other spring picked teas that I will be reviewing later this month. This is the first one that I tried, and I brewed this tea gonfu style so that I could see how its’ flavor changed over time. Continue reading
Today I am going to be reviewing 52 Tea’s Southern Boy Tea’s collection in a two part series. There just are too many of them to review at once, so I will be reviewing 4 of them for today. I also have a post on how to brew these tea bags here if you wold like to know how to do so.
A few quick things that I want to mention about this collection is that each tea bag makes up to 2 quarts each and sell for about $2.99 each. However, there is a discount if you buy multiples of a flavor. For instance if you buy 4-9 bags of a flavor it cost only $2.49 each, which saves you between $2-$4.50 of the regular price for that quantity. If you buy 10+ of a single flavor it only costs $1.99 per bag, which can save you a minimum of $10 compared to the regular price. I would also like to mention that these prices include free shipping in the U.S.A. That means that you can try at least one flavor from this collection and only have to pay $2.99 for it (if shipped in the U.S.) Trust me though, you are going to want to try more then one of these flavors.
The first tea that I will be reviewing is Monkey Fart, which is my favorite flavor so far out of the group. Continue reading
During the hot summer months one of my most favorite things to drink is ice tea. One of my favorite brands to make ice tea with is with 52 Tea’s Southern Boy Ice Tea bags. Here is a quick step-by-step process so you can make ice tea with 52 Tea’s ice tea bags at home. Now 52 Tea’s says that you can use the bags to make one quart at a time and to save the bag for another day to use. Personally I like to make 2 quarts all at once so I will show you how to do that. If you wish to only make 1 quart at a time, just half all of the measurements for your water and sweetener (except the 2 cups to steep your tea), and skip step 8.
First thing that you need to do is clear off a spot on the counter or flat stove top and gather all of your equipment that you will need which are: Continue reading
I was meaning to do a more in-depth review of this fine tea, but I am out of time for it. Verdant Tea has it on clearance at just $4.20 an ounce! Ok, on to the review.
So far out of all the oolongs that I have tried, my least favorite is non-roasted or un-aged Tieguanyin. I mean they taste good with there buttery greens and floral flavors, I just a little boring. However, this tea is different. It was processed in such a way that it while having those classic flavors it has a nice tangy gram flavor to it. It adds a lot of depth to it. I recommend brewing it in 6oz of water for western style; the flavor is way stronger.
So if you always drink Tieguanyin, want to try something new, or can’t resist a sale I highly recommend checking this tea out. I would hurry though. Last I checked there was only 4 pounds left.
Just found a cool herbal recipe for sun tea. Check it out here——–>How to make: Sweet Sun Tea.
I decided to make a Facebook page to better connect with people and let them know about new posts check it out and like it here.
Just found this awesom song on Pandora. I usally loath Pandora, since when I pick out a band after about two songs it starts to play other bands or genras. However I found this one station that plays (mostly) new blues songs and have been finding a lot of good stuff. Here is there bio that I found for King Kong.
Tea: Triple C Tea
Company: none; My own personal recipe
This is the first post that has some of my own pictures in it. YAY!!!! PROGRESS! Anyways this is a tea that I like to make to help me relax at night. I love chamomile plain, but I am a bit of a spice fiend so I have been thinking of ways to add spices to it, and ended up coming up with a great tea blend. I call it Triple C Tea; cause the the three main ingredients all start with, “C.” Here is what you will need…
- Chamomile (If you can’t buy it loose, use 2-3 tea bags for 16 ounces of water)
- Cinnamon Stick (small or big)
- Cloves (1-3)
Now there are two versions of this. One is just plain tea and the other is a latte form. The latter I use a bit more chamomile and spices; I use only 1 clove and Continue reading
