The wonderful world of tea
Tea, having wonderful creation stories, has been refined over thousands of years. Stephanie and I recently picked up a green rooibos tea at Giftorama, and also Tieguanyin ("Iron of Guan Yin", Bodhisattva of compassion) in San Francisco. Stephanie has also introduced me to ice wine tea as well as Akbar's Ceylong tea.
As fall comes to a close, there's possibly nothing better than mulled apple cider with a little spiced rum and good company. We had a few friends over for a potluck and it was stupendous. We played several games (have you been cubed?) including Apples to Apples. Dishes included deviled eggs, bruchette, quiche, baked quinoa, and more.
