Just brewed a mug of Pu-erh (from a bag of loose leaf tea purchased from Lee Rosy’s, Nottingham).
The anticipation is building somewhat. Smells of farmy goodness, slight hint of earthy manure and a really rich, dark colour. Tasty tasty.
I plan on drinking this and re-steeping immediately. ooooh add a little 80% Dark Chocolate and second temple Jewish history plus thousands of dollars worth of Audio Video equipment and you have a good idea of what my night is like.
Sweltering day, padding around in my linens at last, on house arrest on call for work. Refusing to turn on the A/C — why start now? — I pour a pot of this hot tea with cool cardamom. It’s pretty poor quality tea, but the spice is a great touch.
