324 tasting notes

God I did not sleep well last night. Wake up wake up wake up. Yesterday I had a cup and a half of this same stuff, somewhat oversteeped on the first infusion, AND took an Excedrin because I had a headache. Can you say Twitchy Thursday? But today I am not twitchy. I am le sleepy.

Second infusion, from the giant batch I made yesterday. Damn did I use a lot of tea leaves. That may have also helped to explain the mushroominess. Today it’s… a bit mushroom-like, but much lighter on the flavor. My taste buds are still a bit muddled after “first breakfast,” as it were, so my taste might not be up to par.

Boiling 5 min, 30 sec

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.
