Backlog from yesterday morning.

Steep notes: 2 tsp. leaf, 14 oz. water, a splash of milk.

This smells and tastes like chocolate covered cherries! That awesome part of the chocolate taste that I did like from Dubbele Chocolade is present here, without the aftertaste that I didn’t like so much. The cherry flavor is perfect, too – it blends perfectly with the chocolate.

As far as the mouthfeel – the milk really gives this a thicker, chewy texture that takes this from good to decadent. Sigh – I wish I had more than an ounce of this!

Boiling 4 min, 0 sec

I want to try this one too!

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. "
