I would like to buy a large amount of this Shu, so that I can drink it for years. It is sweet, it is yummy. It is also featured in Sichuan Caravan, which is probably my favorite tea blend EVER! I should also order a ridiculously large amount of that, I suppose. :D
So…I haven’t written on my NaNoWriMo project for the last 2 days, & quite honestly got very little done over the weekend. I had planned on writing all morning, but Tony showed up, & I ended up fixing him breakfast & hanging out instead. Then the afternoon gig, errands, dinner, & now it’s almost 7pm & I’m drinking multiple steepings of this, and psyching myself up for some serious writing!
When I use my Gaiwan (4oz – 5 oz tea – 4 sec), I tend to steep 4 cups back to back (while the water’s hot), and the first 4 went down so quickly, they were just that good. Sweet buttery vanilla pastry.
I’m drinking the next 4 now: 2 at 10 sec, and 2 at 20 sec.
The 3rd steeping is also in process: I moved the tea to a steeping basket, dropped that into my 12 oz glass pot, & left it 5 minutes.
I think that will be enough tea for the night…lets see…4 oz x 8, that’s 32 oz, plus 12…that will be 44 oz of tea…good thing I’m gonna be up writing for awhile!
