So much love for this tea. I’m having a “Oh hey, it’s nice out, have some allergies” kind of day, so I reached for a green. My only issue with this is I pretty much can’t have it at work. If I get boiling water from somewhere, it’s too hot. Davids doesn’t make it drinkable for me, and my travel press doesn’t stop the steeping enough. And it seems a crime to drink this one cold. A criiiiiime.

Ahwell. This will just be one for me to enjoy at home .

did you see that post awhile back about the guy inventing a new tea ball?? I wonder what became of that…
it was supposed to close off once the timer rang so you didnt need to worry about oversteeping. I would SO pay for one of those

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!
