My green for the day! (yay)
Taking a break for trying to figure out what the Elusive Spiced Green tastes like to finish up this sample. I continue to be pretty meh on it, I’m just not that enamored of the base tea I think. Also, the sesame taste really isn’t particularly prominent. Well, it’s gone now so I guess I can stop trying to reason out my ambivalence to it.

The pattern of liking it less with each cup continues and at this point I have to say that I am just glad to be done with it. I’m not sure I’ve ever experienced that pattern before. I wonder if my initial fondness of it was some sort of novelty thing? And then the novelty wore off? Oh well, goodbye Tokyo!

PS: man, my 200th note came and went without me noticing! Need to start paying more attention.

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.
