The days are hot and humid here in Tucson as the monsoon season is underway in the desert. There is no greater perfume than the creosote bush whose scent permeates the air after a rainstorm. There is another oasis for desert-dwellers to soothe the effects of the harsh summer. Seven Cups teahouse is a small but mighty and instantly transports you into a cocoon of calm the moment you enter. My friend Mabel asked me to meet her for tea yesterday. Instead of my usual puer tea I choose a pot of this tea. Luckily I made it back home before the thunderstorms began. Thanks M!
