My whole body hurts. I did a 4 hour cave tour yesterday and a 5.5 mile hike the day before that. I got so muddy my jeans turned into khakis and I had to pressure wash them before doing laundry. Good thing I don’t work until tomorrow, because OW.

Before I left to go underground though I had a quick cup of this. The dry leaf smell REALLY nailed french toast yesterday, it was sweet and bready so I decided to have some with cinnamon toast. I added milk and sugar to 10 oz. of water at the below parameters.

SUCCESS! I don’t know if enough time has passed that everything has just finally blended itself together, or if I finally just nailed the right ratio of leaf to steep time, but THIS cup tasted like french toast with just a hint of powdered sugar. I got the toasty bread flavor!!!

It really hit the spot yesterday, for whatever reason. Now I’m just hoping I’ll be able to duplicate it!

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. "
