I have been drinking up the odds and ends of tea sitting around my place since Sunday. I am getting twitchy. Even though I have teas I have yet to sample for some reason I really have been wanting to place an order:) Oh the addiction, you know so i can try EVERYTHING!
Besides drinking down bits of tea I have also been playing with my new qaiwan. This is the tea I tried last night, and my first official pu’er. I tried the pu’er from the TTB, but really what I did was drink the rinse water so I will not count that.
Last night was all about the process and the exploration. I don’t remember much about the taste, but I do remember enjoying the tea. I have found that as I am brewing with the qaiwan I really enjoy the teas more in the middle set of infusions. This was the same for the pu’er. (This could be me still getting the parameters right? ) This tea started out a bit scary, and the middle infusions were full of life and flavor. I found myself craving this as I went to bed. I won’t say I am hooked just yet, but I will say last night experience just added to my want to try more tea, in this case more pu’er!
