Backlogging 3 cups of this from this morning. I’m seriously on a tea drinking kick lately – must be the cold snap. But that’s good! I have a ton of tea to drink (and more on the way once the mailman gets here, which will hopefully be tonight!)

I’m starting to run low on this one – going to have to place a 52Teas order soon, I think. It just manages to taste so mapley and buttery – and then there’s just enough of a hint of pancake to make me feel like I’ve eaten, rather than drank, my breakfast. So glad this is a permanent tea!

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. "
