I wanted to try the Yunnan again today even though I was quite unsure of how it would go with breakfast. It went surprisingly well. I wasn’t able to really taste this cup as well as the previous ones due to some slight nasal-throat things I have going on due to the cold dry weather and heat running a lot. Don’t worry, I haven’t gotten sick.

I haven’t tried Andrews & Dunham, but I like Yunnan on a cold day when I’m not quite sick but my throat is soar. My sinus is pretty weak, so I get that feeling quite often living in Michigan. When my throat’s sore, I always find myself heading for Keemun or Yunnan, those Chinese Blacks… strange, because normally I’m a fan of stronger “Western” blacks.

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.
