Prepped latte style – half milk, half water, no sweetener.

I love my morning cup of tea before work, even if it is at 5 AM. Even if I don’t get to REALLY savor it. Something about that cup gets me nice and ready for the craziness that will be the next 12-13 hours.

This is even more amazingly cakey when milk is involved – and lightly sweet from the chocolate chips in the mix. I will definitely keep this on hand since I don’t eat cake itself anymore…

Boiling 6 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. "
