Drinking this tea and listening to classical music while doing some homework… I feel fancy.

Re-steeped the leaves I had earlier. 180 (degrees F), 2 minutes, 2 teaspoons leaves, 2 cups water.

Still enjoyed it this time around. :)

Wanted something familiar (so I wouldn’t have to think too much about it) and really enjoyable while working on a programming assignment. This was the choice!

Was feeling this today. Good solid cups of tea.

Had this with some egg whites and some tasty, but very messy, “9 grain” toast.

First of all, these are the infusion parameters I used this time:
4 balls, 2 cups boiling (212 degrees F) water, 5 minutes, first steep.

It was quite good. Not amazing, but good.

Quite smooth for a black tea. Everything seemed to blend well together (or I couldn’t distinguish any particular flavor, anyways). Not much in the way of bitterness either.

I didn’t really allow my cup to cool much while drinking, so I can’t say how it did as it cooled. Last time I had this with 3 balls/2 cups, I didn’t like it as it cooled down then (it was ok warm).

Will continue tweaking with parameters values as I use up my sample, but this time around it turned out quite good.
