Backlogging. 5 days ago. Friday morning.

First tea of the day! Because sometimes you need chocolate for breakfast. =)

The black tea base came out a bit bitter in this cup. I need to lower the steeping time a bit and watch my leaf amount on this one. But I still love it so!

Preparation

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.
