drank Moroccan Mint by Teavana

Decreased the steep time to reduce astringency – I though it brought the mint out more, but my boyfriend liked it better with the slightly longer steep, despite the added bitterness. I’m thinking we can come to a compromise if we add slightly more tea leaves (we did 2 tsp. to 500 ml water in our Breville) and keep with the minute and thirty seconds. Will try that and report back.

A few of my favorite teas (in no particular order):

*Dessert flavored blacks
*Breakfast blends
*Virtually any black tea (but lapsang/keemun!)
*Dancong oolong

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. "
