Matcha. I dive in too early. Which really isn’t smart cuz then I jump and could easly dump it all in my lap. And even more unfortunately I put my tea above my well being so I’d be more upset about wasting matcha than my burn.

Any tea w/ a short steeping time like pu erhs or Japanese greens (Bancha, Gen Mai Chai, and Houjicha are notorious for this because they are to be prepared w/ boiling water). Longer steeping times, especially if you don’t use a cozy, allow the tea to cool before you decant and drink it.

Ugh, I burnt my tongue (and lips) and pretty badly on some Ceylon today. Went to test it because the steeping time is shorter than I’m used to for a black tea, and accidentally tipped my mug too much and got a big gulp of it.

Yep, shorter steeping times will get you!

This is why I always drink my tea with a spoon until it’s merely warm! :P

Murchie’s Uva Ceylon, which I drank at work. I burnt my tongue while scooping with a plastic spoon.
