Backlogging. 12 days ago. Early afternoon.

Needing some more caffeine, I reached for another black tea. Now every so often, I have this tea with a spoon of jam stirred in, which gives it a fruity tart flavor to go w/ the smokiness and I kind of like it like that. But I also like it plain too. But I’ve never had it with strawberry jam before. Omg so so good. Strawberry, smoke, a hint of tart, and black tea. Love it. And quickly consumed both steeps. I was not planning on getting the Caravan reissue at all once I finished this tin. Now I’m considering it, just to have with strawberry jam alone. I wake up in the morning wanting this tea this way now.

2nd steep: 8 mins 30 sec

Preparation
205 °F / 96 °C 3 min, 45 sec

The jam goes in the tea? If so I’ve never done that but may have to try.

I’ve never tried putting jam in tea before either. I will have to try this!

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.
