314 tasting notes

Had to be up at 5 AM to take my mom to the airport, so made a couple of cups from this with second-infusion leaves. This time (and I normally don’t do this but I know this tea doesn’t really oversteep) it steeped for an hour and a half. Then I took a three and a half hour nap, then reheated the tea (whoops!) So I wound up having this tea about five and a half hours after I originally made it. This time around, I get a little bit of malty and a lot bit of peppery, and normally it’s the reverse with this one. Still a good wake-up tea, though.

Preparation

Bio

The name’s Holly, and I’ve been a tea drinker since spring of 2013. Tea is my happy place – it picks me up, it calms me down, it helps me focus, it helps me loosen my grip, it’s a little bit of positivity in each day. I do not drink alcohol, so tea is my recreational beverage. I love learning everything there is to know about it and sharing my experiences.

When I’m not drinking or writing about tea, I’m working at a music store and pursuing a Master’s degree in professional writing. You may also find me reading, writing, trying to learn French, cycling on the weekends, being a klutz, or making horrible puns and Star Trek references. Likely all at the same time.
