Backlogging. Last Tuesday morning.
I had my usually half and half of this EG and A&D’s Ceylon and it was perfectly fine. But I wasn’t too interested in a second mugful. I needed some kick to wake me up. This combo usually needs a little bit of fresh leaf to keep the flavor up for the second steep. So instead of adding a pinch of EG and Ceylon, I added a pinch of the Tiger. Now I do not like the Tiger and this EG as a combo. But somehow the three of them together was magical. I will be trying to replicate this effect in the future.
2nd steep: 5 min. Pinch of Tiger.
