Vermont RenFaire

So … I spent the weekend doing magic at the Vermont RenFaire in Stowe.

There’s video.

I had a good time, despite rain, sun, wind, and … rain.  I met some wonderful people, some great performers, and had some good munchies.

I’m definitely planning to find out if the Vermont Steampunk Expo needs a magician.

For me, the absolute high point was meeting a young man named Ben who had recently (recently, as of June 2nd of this year) created a tea company.  Not just any tea, pHtea, iced tea in a variety of flavors that is pH balanced between 7.35 and 7.45 to match the pH of a human body so it doesn’t knock your acid/base balance out of whack.  It’s sweetened with Vermont honey (rather than refined sugar or high-fructose corn syrup), and is totally great.  Ben was pouring samples for everyone who walked by, and everyone was loving it.

In my opinion, his Yerba Mate was the best — it compared favorably with the mate I had in Peru all those years ago.

Right now the stuff is only available at farmers’ markets in Vermont.  I bought five bottles to take home with me. Seriously, it’s worth a trip to Vermont.
