It’s Sunday! It’s Sunday and I don’t have to go to work tonight!

This is a biscuits and tea kind of morning, for sure. I beat the boyfriend’s wake up by an hour so I had plenty of time to get the biscuits together, throw them in the oven, put on a pot of tea and clean up after myself. I love when days start off productive!

Lately I’ve been shying away from dessert teas for some reason. I’ve been wanting the heavier unflavored blacks and oolongs. This morning screamed breakfast tea and I remembered I had this and it had been awhile. The Keemun in this made me leary, from what I remember. I think I was able to taste the smoke and this girl does not do smoke in tea.

Luckily though I don’t get any of that this morning. With milk and sugar this is just a strong, clean, get moving kind of drink. A fantastically rich mouthfeel just rounds out it perfectly. Glad I found this one in my cupboard today!

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. "
