The August Tealog Catchup ! [24 tealogs remaining]

My Mom brought this one on her own which is a little bit odd considering she really only drinks black teas with the occasional green tea. But I like vanilla and I like rooibos so I’ll go with it.

Steeped up in a large mug for the maximum recommended time, I get vanilla and rooibos but nothing, you know, stellar. It’s a nice solid cup for before bed and I’m glad to add it to my nighttime rotation there. Since I finished off the Mandarin Green Tea last time I was out here, I’ll need to be getting a few more of non-black teas to add to it.

Preparation
200 °F / 93 °C 6 min, 0 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.
