After 36 hours of illness I am feeling well enough again to have my tea but I figured it would be better to err on the side of caution and stick to something a little gentler.

The color of the liquor reminds me of “green” twigs that have had the bark stripped off. That pale pale blond with just a hint of green. And the taste, mmmmm, just what I needed. Sweet, vegetal, a hint of nuttiness every now and then. Definitely what I needed this morning.

I prefer loose-leaf teas but I do like to keep some tea bags around for travel. I prefer black teas (especially Yunnans), dark oolongs, and pu’erh. My #1 favorite is Jasmine Golden Yunnan from thepuriTea.com.

Most used pots:

12oz blue tetsubin (1.75-2.0 grams of leaf. teas steeped in this get a spoon-full of sugar)

10oz green tetsubin (1.55-1.65 grams of leaf. teas steeped in this get less than a spoon-full of sugar)

5oz gaiwan (4.0-4.15 grams of leaf. no sugar)

4oz gaiwan (2.5-3 grams of leaf. no sugar)
