Second infusion from last nights’ leaves, 8 minute steep.

The scent of the leaves is surprisingly floral, and less grassy this time. The creamy mouthfeel is diminished this time around, leaving a green, grassy and lightly floral tea that I had (and really enjoyed) with my breakfast this morning. It does well when paired with food – better as a background tea than as the main focus, if that makes any sense. Not something I’ll be buying but I would not refuse a cup, if it were offered to me again.

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. "
