Lately I’ve had the biggest sweet tooth, especially at night. I usually want something desserty but we don’t have sweet stuff on hand because, well, I normally prefer salt. But luckily I have plenty of dessert teas that can fill that void!

This one was prepped with brown sugar and milk at my usual parameters.

What I love about this particular blend is that each cup is a surprise in terms of what note sticks out the most. Sometimes it’s the banana, sometimes the bread/walnut, sometimes the butter. Today I get butter and then banana, but I pretty much enjoy it any way it comes. It isn’t one of the 52teas main blends, though, which makes me sad, as I only have a few cups left. :( Pretty sure I’ll have to suck it up and by a pound of it when that happens.

I have come to the point (as of October 2014) where quality in tea is more important than quantity. Especially because I’m a seasonal tea drinker where hot tea is concerned, and a SLOW one to boot. I generally don’t resteep only because I’d be here all day if I did, though I do break out a gaiwan from time to time.

I adore French teas in practically every iteration, Japanese Sencha (specifically from the Uji region, as they offer the most seaweed flavor), and Dan Cong oolongs. I am trying to focus on plain teas and so companies like Verdant, Upton, and Butiki are on my favorites list.

When it comes to tea, I feel like the 10th Doctor says it best:

“Tea! That’s all I needed! Good cup of tea! Super-heated infusion of free-radicals and tannin, just the thing for healing the synapses. "
