Had this a few days ago at work.

It was perfectly fine on the mouthfeel but I realized that my thermos had one of those rubber o rings in it and that might be why stuff was starting to taste…off. Don’t get me wrong, my Della Terra stuff still was too thin but there probably was an added yuck to the taste that was out of its control.

So that is currently soaking in tea stain remover after being soaked overnight in soapy water and then it will be aired out so hopefully I can use that thermos for work tomorrow. I’ve gotten to really love my nightly thermos of tea!

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. "
