This is awesome with bacon on the side- even though I only added some milk to the cup to have with my breakfast, you would think I added maple syrup. I love how salty flavors bring out sweet!

The buttery pancake flavor in this really shines when there’s milk involved, too. No dice for the boyfriend – after how much he was liking that flavored matcha I got ambitious and made him try a sip of this, too, but his tastebuds must be back to normal because he’s on his unflavored only kick again.

Ah well – it was nice while it lasted. And on the plus side, at least this tea is all mine!

Boiling 4 min, 30 sec

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. "
