Another tea from jump62359 that i had earlier in the afternoon. this one wasn’t bad, though i STILL don’t like that whole black/green blend thing. it always confuses me…how do i brew it? what’s going on! AAAAAAH! Either way, this wasn’t bad but nothing i need to drink again.. It’s fun to consider the fandom blends though in terms of the story lines and how this tea might be someone’s idea of what that concept was like…. :)

With black/green blends or black/white blends, I usually brew it to the temperature of the lighter tea, but brew it longer than usual to make up for the black tea… if that makes any sense? It’s a lot of experimentation with the times and just making sure that it doesn’t get bitter :)

yeah.. i do that too but it still hurts my head every time!

Need more tea. Read that first line as “Still Not Dead”.

Sil

well it’s technically true.. lol

OMGsrsly

I would hope so, considering you’re still posting here. :)

I just do what Adagio tells me. Sometimes that makes a huge difference! (there I go trusting in the fandom creators again)

I hardly ever follow recipes, except maybe for baking anything that needs to rise. Once I make something once I tend to wing it unless I really loved the recipe and found it unusual. I kind of do the same with tea.

And that’s why I’m not good at baking/cocoking. I don’t have any creativity or confidence in going off on my own until I’ve followed the proper instructions at least once. :P

So no real clue what to write about myself here. A friend got me into drinking loose tea and it’s something I thoroughly enjoy though I have nowhere near the experience that many folks on the boards seem to have.

My other interests are cycling, reading, board games, disney cruises, world of warcraft and dancing – in no particular order. I love travelling and am currently working on trying to get my other half to as many place in the world as possible.
