So this tea has taken over my tasting notes. :)

Served on this cold night with fresh chocolate chip cookies. Boyfriend thinks this tea is too sweet (and a little too spicy for him) so opted for his favorite, a spearmint tisane, instead. The psychologist in me did not miss the fact that our teas of choice fit our personalities rather well (me=high strung and intense, him=chill and mellow). Both drinks went well the cookies, though, so that’s all that matters!

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. "
