It’s an ick day outside (rainy and cold) and the boyfriend and I are feeling under the weather. Headaches all around – meh.

So it was time to make tea, and this is one of the few he’ll drink with me. But for some reason I was thinking this was the Teavana blend so I overcompensated on the leaf. It’s okay for me since I drink mine with milk anyway, but too strong for him.

Note to self: 4 tsp. for 3 cups next time!

I’m just really not on it today. But at least I have my tastebuds in working order!

Boiling 4 min, 0 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. "
