Backlog. 12 days ago – Friday morning.

I like the Boston black tea so much I couldn’t wait to have it again. And it was every bit as enjoyable as the first time I had it. I think I maybe have used a bit more leaf and steeped it a bit longer. It tasted very good this way tho. I may increase the steeping time to the full five minutes next time to see if I prefer it that way.

The second steep was very weak. To the point of being undrinkable as tea. So I think if I end up going with a longer first steep, this is a single steep tea. Which kind of sucks because I’ve wanted a second cup immediately both times I’ve had it.

I am really regretting the small amount of this tea that I have.

Bio

I’m 33 years old, studying pharmacy, and have a surly cat named Bin. I love tea, coffee, beer, wine, and most things food and beverage related. I also love music, movies, reading, writing, and learning new things.

I’ve drank tea all my life but about five to six years ago, my close friend Spautz got into tea and got me more into tea. I drink black teas and tisanes/herbals most. Since receiving a variable temperature kettle from my parents for Xmas this past year, I’ve been drinking more greens, oolongs, and whites. I’m very very new to puerh. That is, I’ve had only one.
