Of course, I’m missing a whole slew of backlogged tea notes. At least it’s summer and I’m not drink as much tea as usual. Wait.. What am I saying? That is NOT a good thing.

So a mid-afternoon thunderstorm brought on more of the headache I’d had all day and a cup of tea became necessary. I’ve had this tea before several times but just have not logged it yet. My mom brought me TST’s Raspberry Black back from a trip to Savannah and she brought this for herself so of course I took a sample of it home with me too to enjoy.

It’s been awhile since I’ve had it though and I can’t remember how long I used to steep it for. I thought around 3 mins but I know I steep the Raspberry Black around 4 mins so I went with that. I do remember that I thought the peach was kind of artificial tasting before.

However, it was much better than I remembered this time. Which is good. Both because I enjoyed it and because I’ll likely drink the remainder of what I have left quicker now.

Profile

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.
