Prepped according to the below parameters – 2 tsp. leaf to 8 oz. water as per package directions.

The last few nights at work were rough but I don’t go back in until Thursday night at least. Sometimes I wonder what I was thinking, becoming a nurse. I love it but I’m such an introvert that I get positively drained after a few shifts and need the time to recover.
Speaking of introverts, I discovered I’m an INFJ recently. Anybody else know their MBTI type?

I say all this to explain why I’m drinking a strong cup of this malty, chocolate wonder now, instead of going straight to bed. It is so smooth, rich and comforting. Something about the smell of a freshly brewed, good black tea just relaxes me, and this is no exception. Strange how a tea can manage to be both calming and energizing simultaneously – but this one does that.

Just what I needed for right now…

Weird! I am an INFJ too…isn’t that type supposed to be pretty rare? Neat :)

Stephanie

Ad yeah, as a fellow INFJ, I’m real glad my job does not involve me dealing with the public directly…

Didn’t we have a whole discussion thread recently on the introversion thing? I can’t find it, but I’m right there in INFJ land with you. My husband, King of Introverts, noted just yesterday that we have created a world that doesn’t understand the value of quiet.

@ Stephanie, they do say INFJs are pretty rare. Maybe an unusually high percentage are represented online, though, since its a way of getting people interaction without actually interacting.

@gmathis, I’ll have to search the threads for this! I’m definitely curious to see how similar as a group we Steepsters are…

Stephanie

Yes, online is definitely a LOT easier than in person interaction, so I bet you are right about the number of introverts online :)

in fact, my boyfriend sent me this drawing last week. (he is a true extrovert and i think i make him lonely sometimes) (but it’s been 6 years so i guess he’s okay with it.)

I usually come up as an INFJ or an INFP

OMGsrsly

(Hiss!) I love that part. I generally feel that way about people, but I truly do value social interaction.

I’m an INFP as well. Idealistic and not exactly practical.

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. "
