drank Pineberry Honeybush by 52teas

So, uh, this.

I probably overleafed this one. It was super dark and there was a bunch of sediment at the bottom. And it had this off smell – I actually don’t know that it’s off so much as woodsy – from the honeybush I guess?

Anyway, so I think strawberry+pineapple+marshmallow does not work for me. Strawberry+pineapple would have been fine, and strawberry + marshmallow, also fine, but these three together are not playing nice. Maybe if I go down on the leaf next time they won’t fight with each other so much?

Or maybe I should try it cold? Though I did let it cool and it was still a bit bleh.

Sigh – I’ll experiment and report back.

Boiling 8 min or more

maybe a shorter steep time?

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. "
