Ok, so I went for the third steep after all. I needed something to wash down the cake I just ate for breakfast. :D

Steep 3: Actually much better. Steeped with cooler water. Less vegetal and more floral. Buttery is fading to plain milky creamy.

My wife said, shame on you. Me, I said, Mmmmmmmmm cake!

It’s very good for you, as cakes go. Homemade. Replaced 3/4 of fat with apple sauce and used only 2/3 of the sugar the recipe called for. Besides, everyone’s allowed to have cake for breakfast on weekends.

Hey, I’m not judging. I had pizza for breakfast yesterday… and there was nothing healthy about it.

I love pizza for breakfast too. :)

I made filled cupcakes yesterday. Tried a new frosting recipe but wasn’t crazy about it. I morphed into Paula Dean. MORE BUTTER! MORE BUTTER! It turned out pretty good once I took liberties with it. LOL! It wasn’t healthy. I ate two. But not for breakfast. :D

Bio

I came from a tea drinking family, but I never appreciated the different qualities and varieties of tea until older. All that time wasted! But I guess I needed to be mature enough to appreciate the tea experience. :)

My favorite teas are green oolongs and white tea. I also love greens, especially gyokuro. I have a huge appreciation for rooibos and honeybush as they are often that only thing I can drink in the evening. I am a relatively new convert to black teas. This is unfortunate for my wallet but extremely wonderful for my palate. :)

In any case, I have a love for both flavored and unflavored teas. They are different experiences for sure, but both enjoyable. I find that it often depends on my mood.

I am on a quest to find a tea that will win my husband over. I think I’m making some headway…
