It's been raining here in Vancouver for the past few days--the skies are a dark grey, the air has turned cool and you can really smell the fresh, wet earth. After a week of hot summer weather, the change has been pretty welcome.
I love to drink tea anytime, but on days and night like this there is nothing more comforting than a hot mug of tea in your hands.
My favorite is this Japanese green tea from Yamamotoyama, green tea with brown rice. The roasted rice gives a really nutty warm flavor to the tea, and it smells earthy and divine. It makes a good cup. Don't you love the green packaging and design?
