It’s nearly midnight, but… I think I’ll re-steep and have a second cup of this for the evening. It’s just so good and relaxing!

If I had actualfax candycanes in the house, or even chocolate, I would probably just demolish that instead. So… tea instead. It’s easier on the hips too! :P

Does anyone know if you lose caffeine if you re-steep? Cuz that would be a bonus!

Supposedly subsequent steeps are lower and lower in caffeine. How much is debated. I have seen everything from 20% to 90%.

It makes sense that you’d lose a bit by resteeping! You’re losing flavour etc too, so why not caffeine?

Tea: I just started drinking loose tea in the fall of 2012, and once I started I had to get more and more and try ALL THE TEAS. Joining Steepster made this worse/easier.

So far it seems that I prefer unflavoured black teas, although I still drink a few that are flavoured each day too. Oolongs, greens, puerhs and white teas are all very good, but I just don’t crave them as often.

Yet.

Me: Ok. Random things. I like animals, I have a baby girl and a devoted bf, and … I’m a geek. I like Lord of the Rings, Sherlock, Doctor Who, Game of Thrones, Supernatural, pen&paper RPG’s, online RPG’s, video games, silly internet memes, puzzles and a bunch of others things! I taught myself to knit and I’m considering crochet but I need to make time for all these things!
