I’m resteeping the leaves from earlier and the taste is less nutty and more tannin-like, the muscatel wine flavour still about as strong as before.

The boyfriend-creature just came in from work and when I told him what kind of tea I was drinking he laughed and said “Sounds like some sort of alien species- ‘Help the Darjeelians are attacking!’” Jerk.

…I’m pretty sure my guy would say the same. Let’s hope there’s hope for them both.

I don’t get to much bounce back about the names of teas from my guy, it’s just the sheer vastness of quantities of teas I have that make him cringe. I have so many all bunched together that he can’t tell when I’ve added a new one to the collection. Guess that’s a good thing! ;)

@Jillian You should tell him they’ll suck his brains out when he’s sleeping. Though I suppose that would be more effective if he was five years old.

Profile

Bio

I’m a university student in her twenties who’s currently working her way toward a Bachelor of Natural Resource Science degree. I love both science and science-fiction and I’m a history nut on top of that. Maybe I should just call myself a nerd and leave it there. ;)

I’ve been drinking tea since I was young but it’s only in the past couple years that I’ve become interested in the good-quality stuff.

I’m also a self-proclaimed Grammar-Nazi, and improper capitalization and spelling invariably makes me twitch (yes, I mean you!)
