Just sitting here waiting for the pathologist to show up, so I figured I might as well start telling you about my morning travel-cup tea today. Because you know how it is. Start doing something else, and they’ll show up. Quite surprised he isn’t here already, actually.
Anyway, I was feeling lazy this morning but I wanted to bring some tea along. I don’t always, it depends on what I feel like and how (yup, there he was, and now he’s run off again) sleepy I’m feeling. This morning I wondered whether or not to brew up a batch something or other inconsequential, but I couldn’t be bothered and the leaves from last night were right there
I have to say though that third steep wasn’t as successful as the first two. Very little flavour to speak of. So either it can only do two proper good steeps that I can be bothered to drink or it’s just not suited for travelling. I tried drinking some of it with the lid off too, but I didn’t really get much out of it. It wasn’t that it just tasted like warm water, but it wasn’t the same thing as last night either. Thinner maybe. A bit more… generic, sort of.
It’s difficult to explain, but it’s not really something I think I’ll do again. I’d probably try a third steep at home in my proper porcelain teapot and see how that goes, but not for travelling. Definitely not for travelling.
And the pathologist left again… We’ll never get done.
