This is a tea where the taste is better than the smell. I have to make a point to not smell the dry tea bag if I want to drink it, if I want to enjoy it. It just seems kind of musty and cheap to my nose.

Luckily it does taste good, especially with some milk and sugar to bring out the creaminess. Still, I don’t reach for it as much as I could due to the nose-wrinkling factor. Ah well, at least it doesn’t smell wonderful and taste gross!

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. "
