I think I blocked this one from my memory out of sorrow. I had it yesterday, the last of my little pouch. My timer was in use at the moment, so I tried to eyeball the time. Turns out, I need something to make noise at me. I got distracted loading the dishwasher and next thing I knew, it had been steeping for a full 10 minutes. I only got a single sip out of it, but it was too bitter and down the sink it went. We’re trying not to buy tea at the moment, so it will be a while until I can replace this one in my cupboard.

Farewell, Orange Pekoe. I’m sorry I wasted you! Not going to adjust my rating because I still love this tea, the poor taste was my own darn fault.

I can’t stand to waste, I usually just drink it anyway

Ah, but drinking it would have utterly killed my love of their Orange Pekoe.

My tastes in tea have changed, so I should update this as well. I find myself leaning more towards rooibos and herbals, if only for their great ability to chill in my travel mug for hours and not get weird on me. When I have time to properly brew a cuppa, I lean towards white teas (which I only steep for 30 seconds) and black teas (which only get 2-3 minutes from me). I cannot stand green teas, they’re too fiddly for my tastes. Oolongs are great, but a bit fiddly as well. However, I love watching oolongs open up in my looseleaf brewer. I’m slowly discovering mates and falling for them…there are many I look forward to trying!

So…yeah. That’s me and my tea!
