Despite waking up this morning feeling tired, I didn’t want a tea with much bite so I chose the mellower Napal. I don’t think I used enough tea leaf so both steeps were on the weak side. I kept getting floral today and thinking violets with a honeyed sweetness.

I had a yucky headache last night which is all got today but I think is the cause of the continuing tiredness into midday. I might have some Yunnan after lunch for a bit more of a caffeine punch. Massive backlogging of teas from the past week will be coming later as well.

2nd steep: 5 min, 200° F, more than a pinch of fresh leaf.

Thanks, Stephanie!

Tea Bird ~ All the Rounds I have were yummy! Have you tried any A&D? I have all of them but Series 3.

I bought series 2, and got some of 3 in a swap (Caravan), but series 4 was long gone by the time I learned of it. I eagerly await 5 ;)

I know. I keep checking back, in case it’s a another small number of sets series. I don’t want to miss it.

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.
