Backlogging. Last Wednesday morning.

Short note. Drank this in the morning before, with, or after breakfast. As yummy good as the first time.

PS I hate you heat! I am drinking practically no tea at all. I miss tea. But it’s too hot for tea. And I’m not fond of ice tea. Though I might be driven to try cold brewing something (but what?!) by shear desperation to have some tea and because the concept intrigues me. So a few more backlogged tealogs from last week coming, then a single cup of black tea this morning that I didn’t even resteep. Did I mention I hate the heat?

PPS My surly cat is sleeping on the husband’s desk chair with his head hanging off the edge and one paw stretched out into the air. SO cute. If I had a digital camera, I’d post a photo for ya’ll.

2nd steep: 6 min.

1. I also hate the heat, but I hate snow more and I can somehow still do hot tea and not feel overheated.

2. Surly sleeping cat! I have a wonderfully adorable mental image going. =^.^=

1. I like snow. I did managed two cups of Caravan this morning and a Peach Tranquility/Tropical Green blend tonight (to use up the last of the Peach Tranquility – yay @ uncupboarding).

2. Surly cat is currently on the husband’s desk chair again. Paws tucked under, tail hanging off the back, head pointed down, ears alert. He’s not sleeping this time, he’s watching the crazy cat, who is in the box that our new printer came in. The printer came late last week and I haven’t been able to bring myself to recycle the box yet since they are enjoying it so.

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.
