Argh! I broke my David’s Tea mug (the pretty clear one with the branches) yesterday before work. It didn’t shatter so much as just split cleanly into 3 large pieces. It’s like the world is determined for me to break my no tea-related purchases ban…

Anyway, before I hit the sack I wanted some Earl Grey. The steeped tea is always so dingy looking to me – it has an unattractive grayish hue that I just don’t really understand. It has no bearing on the taste though, fortunately!

Mmm. Creamy orange, orangey cream. I love this with milk and sugar…good thing I have a lot of it!

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. "
