Resteeping the leaves from last night. The tea has pretty much unfurled completely and I noticed that the leaves are quite skinny and they almost look like bits of ribbon floating in my cup when I’m steeping.

No cocoa flavour this time, just the smokey-tannin taste that I’m beginning to associate with Yunnan tea. I’ll probably be able to get at least one more steeping out of the leaves.

Boiling 6 min, 15 sec

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!)
