Made a giant pot of this yesterday afternoon and drank it all evening long.
Very nice! and the longer it steeps the more Golden Monkeyish it gets. I think part of the fun of making a large pot is that (if you are lazy like me and never take out the leaves) your tea changes with each cup as it steeps longer. Of course, that means that you can’t really do it with every single tea…this one works though!

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.
