Backlogging. 11 days ago. Wednesday morning.

I’ve been reading about people blending two teas to create the smokey cowboy earl grey. But I’ve put off trying it even though I was intrigued. I did this as a half and half with Harney’s Earl Grey and this tea was all I could taste. The resteep was odd and not all that enjoyable.

2nd steep: 6 mins

Preparation
205 °F / 96 °C 3 min, 0 sec

Oh a smokey Earl Grey! Sounds interesting! I’ll have to try it at some point…

We’ve tried the smoky blends as well, the most interesting was wild cherry with lapsang. Felt like doing something very bad when drank it. Although my husband on the other hand can drink the cherry only when it’s mixed with russian black tea, which in my opinion doesn’t give anything new to the taste…maybe it just makes it rounder for him. Wouldn’t know. But Lady Gray with lapsang does taste very nice and they compliment each other well. Or maybe the lady just bends the lapsang into obedience.

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.
