I clocked six extra hours in the lab today. Delightful.

This is actually my third steep because the first two I took in my Timolino to school with me. I didn’t end up drinking them, because I still can’t seem to get the soapy taste out of my mug. Bleh.

This steep is quite tasty. The tea is smooth and has a natural sweetness to it that’s just lovely. I can perhaps get hints of the pecan and oak, but I’ll have to pay close attention to the initial steep on subsequent cups for the citrus and peach notes. An enjoyable cup for the afternoon :)

Bio

Lover of tea, animals, the ocean (http://eastcoastbest.tumblr.com/), science, travel, and all things summer.

That’s my mug! I may have a slight love of Star Trek.

I love black teas. I pretty well always drink my tea straight. I’m also fond of herbals, but they rarely make my permanent collection. I prefer my tea hot, but occasionally I’ll cold brew.

Oolongs I enjoy, but I’m not generally in the mood for them. I only truly enjoy subtly fruity flavoured greens. Whites have to be pretty amazing (see Butiki’s White Rhino).

Pu’erhs I’m working on at a snail’s pace, but so far I’m not loving them. Rooibos/honeybush have to be well hidden for me to enjoy them. Mates and are not for me at all.

Likes:
Coconut, creaminess, yogurt, toffee, cacao (true dark chocolate flavour), rhubarb.

Dislikes:
Any smokiness, bergamot, flowers (rose, jasmine, chamomile), hibiscus is hit and miss.
