Second steeping: Just as good as the first! Added a minute to the steeping time and nom nom nom. I’d say that the white tea retreated somewhat with the second steeping, which is not what I would have expected, but there you go.

I’m gonna try to third steeping iced. We’ll see how it goes!

Now I’ve got ’En-er-ey the 8th I am I am" going through my head: “second verse, same as the first, little bit louder and a little bit worse”!

Is that where that’s originally from? Learn something new every day!

Prolly not. ;-) I don’t think it was original to Herman’s Hermits. Now that I think about it, not sure the last part about being worse is even part of the song. First part is, though.

Hmm, the internets appear to be divided on the issue. It must remain an mystery.

…I got married to the widow next door, she’d been married seven times before, and everyone was a ‘enery…. guess what’s going to stick in my head all day!

Sorry! Lol!

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.
