Tea of the morning this morning. In my beautiful mug that I promise I will shut up about forever after this sentence is finished.

I had to choke this down pretty quick to be out the door for a class but honestly that’s just what this tea is for – tea to drink on the run. Or maybe that’s just me. Earl Grey tends to come off a little thin in the body for my tastes, and if I take my time on it I focus on that aspect and it loses some of its charm.

Or maybe this just means I haven’t found the Earl Grey for me yet?

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. "
