I’ve had this tea forever. I use it in various recipes when I don’t want to use wine. But today, for the first time since I figured out how I like my black teas, I sat down and made a cup of it.

It’s way better than I expected it. It’s a bit musty, but I can see myself enjoying this with a good book and pricey cheese. I don’t think it will be any great hardship to finish the bag, but I haven’t decided yet if it’s worth reordering.

Edit: Also, this is the first cup of tea I’ve made by myself since I burned the heck out of my arm, and I stayed as far away from the kettle as possible. XD

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!
