I love smelling tea. Both the tea itself and the tea leaves. Sometimes I just sniff at it. It might be weird. But I bet other ‘steeps’ here do it.

This was a lovely, light, slightly dry cup. So good that I immediately started resteeping it. It’s steeping right now actually.

GreenTeaSteve pointed out that white tea actually has more caffeine that green after I lamented to him that I had a hankering for green tea but needed a pick me up and felt I should have a black instead.

Edited to say that Steve disproved himself with Google. Green tea does have more caffeine than white.

The whole which tea has more caffeine actually has to do with the tea itself and not the type. I mean some blacks have more than others, some green has as much as black, etc.

Yeah, I can see that there would be variation within a given type. Good point.

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.
