So, uh, hi guys! :)

I am, I’m ashamed to say, a seasonal tea drinker. And since spring started about, oh, March 1 in these parts my hot tea drinking stopped pretty much around then, only to start back this past week. This, actually, is a backlog from last Monday, I think – but I wanted to count it because well, it’s my first tea of fall!

Unfortunately I didn’t really get much flavor from this. Could have been too little leaf, or water that was too hot, and also that I’ve cleaned out my diet and so no more sugar in tea for me – but it was pretty much like drinking hot water. Oh, well, it’s a sample pack so I have a few more tries left on it to get it right.

Man, it feels good to be back!

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. "
