Dr. Shah and Keemun

I went to see my cardiologist today. He is a great doctor and last time I went to see him I brought him some tea since I like and appreciate him so much. He is an Indian-American so I thought I would bring him some black tea, and I chose some Keemun, which is one of my favorite teas. Today I asked him how he liked it, and he told me he liked it very much, and said he had never had a flavored tea before. Of course Keemun is not a flavored tea, so I wasn’t sure how to respond.

I didn’t know how to finish this entry, so I asked Andrew and he didn’t really know what to say either, and suggested that I end with a barrage of  rhetorical questions about nothing in particular, like has tea become so flavorless in the mainstream experience that tasting real tea can’t be imagined as tea, and other unclear ramblings that I won’t so into. So we are leaving this post perplexed, and Andrew walking away mumbling to himself.
