sorry for the prolonged absence from the blogosphere. i had a death in the family, and spent last week in Tennessee.
thanks for ALL the comments! you guys certainly kept the blog active, i appreciate it!
while i was gone, i left my tea (which had already been fermenting for 4 days). i came back, a week later, and this stuff is POWERFUL! eesh. hard to drink, even for me. i’ve been mixing it with a little fruit juice and some seltzer water, and having lovely spritzers.
