So much yum. Another day of work, another big cuppa this. I’m thinking about resteeping the leaves to make a second cup to take to work, I meant to do that yesterday and forgot. I just want to crawl into this tea forever.

I’m finding I’m a huge fan of strong, basic blacks. Not unflavored, but ones like Irish Breakfast or Orange Pekoe or Cranberry Autumn. They just make me happy inside, moreso than most heavily flavored blacks, where the taste is more the flavor of the flavoring, and not the flavor of the tea. Hmm.

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!
