Yet another tea that I cannot believe is not in my cupboard and I’ve never logged. =P The general overview is that this is a solid enjoyable Earl Grey with a black tea based that gets too strong and bitter for my tastes if steeped much over three minutes.

Yesterday morning, I steeped it 30 seconds over that with the intention of making a London Fog and wanting the tea a bit strong to counter the addition of some milk. But when I went to make it, I discovered I had no vanilla. =( It’s on the grocery list now. And the Earl Grey with still quite nice with just a splash of milk.

2nd steep: 7 mins.
Early afternoon. No milk.

Preparation
205 °F / 96 °C 3 min, 30 sec

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.
