drank Clipper Gold Loose Leaf by Bewley's
1720 tasting notes

This time, I let Clipper Gold just barely shake hands with the water (2 min), and it was still sharp and wakey-uppy, but I could taste the subtler notes (burgundy/fruit) and my tongue wasn’t numb ;)

Shorter steep time is a plus when you oversleep and you’re dashing around to get out of the house, huh?

Look at you! Finding that silver lining! :) I am happy to hear you got a little extra sleep, sorry you have to rush, though.

Well, maybe I should be a little more accurate. Alarm went off as usual, eyes opened, the rest of me just loitered longer than necessary.

I dozed a little too long myself this morning, no cup for the ride, had to wait till I got to work for my first one…Yorkshire Gold is doing the trick though :)

Somebody asked me once when I became a tea junkie; I think it dates back to college when I needed caffeine for a 7 a.m. class but chose not to do coffee. My favorite teapot is a medium-sized Brown Betty given to me by my Mema; the painted flowers are chipping off, but the size and feel is perfect. I rejoice when I get a morning to brew a pot of loose tea starting with a kettle; not a bag and a hot pot.
