So yeah, I made this this morning to take with me to class when I realized…I had left my travel mug in the car and I was ALREADY late! Yes, fellow steepsterites (do you realize that if you combine steepster with people, you can conceivably argue that you get steeple? I’m gonna call you steeples from now on. or maybe steoples?) I was going out to face the horrible, horrible morning tea-less. Fortunately, I have my trusty tea case, so I bought some hot water from the coffee stand and had my (different) tea after class.

Still, I had MADE this tea, and I’m not gonna make a tea and not drink it. So I am now drinking cold incredibly strong Irish Breakfast. And that’s…pretty much exactly what it tastes like!

I love “steeples.” And now I’m trying to do a variation of that childhood thing where you go “here is the church, here’s the steeple, open the door and here’s all the steeple!”

Here is the tea, now let it steep(l), go on the ’net, and tell all the steeple!
…yeah…it needs a little work.

Rabs

Oh! How ‘bout: Here is the tea, now let it steep y’all, go on the ‘net, and share with your steeple! Er, Here is the tea, be sure to steep well, hop on the web, and share with your steeple! Egads – I’m gonna be doing variations on this all night.

Profile

Bio

I’m a Pole who grew up in Texas, is currently a graduate student in California studying Japan. How’s THAT for random?

Being Polish, my family has always drunk a lot of tea, and I am no different. I may drink more tea than water. On the other hand, I can’t say that I’m very particular about it; I’m generally pretty careless with steeping times and water temperature and I don’t even have a proper teapot (mostly because the lid broke during the move to California ;_;).

I always drink my tea unsweetened and I only add milk in the case of the most egregiously chai-ish of chais. (not really a big fan of milk in general)

Given that so many of my entries seem to be about my morning tea, I felt I should add something here about me and mornings: I fail at mornings. I fail at them a LOT. Therefore I often also fail at proper tea making in the mornings.
