Accidentally oversteeped this by about 30sec longer than planned, but it tastes nice. Lightly vegetal, lightly sweet, an all around nice white. Using my new Zojirushi which I have set to maintain temp at 175F, so this was a little cooler than I normally steep my whites at.

Approx. 1.5tsp to approx. 10oz of 175F water, steeped for 3min 30sec.

Re-steeped the leaves several hours later. 8oz of 175F water, only 3min steep. It’s lighter than the earlier cup, but still has those same sweet notes. I admit that I hardly ever re-steep tea and the few times I have (when it wasn’t an oolong) I got distinctly astringent/bitter notes so I tend to stay away. This suited itself well for re-steeping.

Preparation
175 °F / 79 °C 3 min, 30 sec 1 tsp 10 OZ / 295 ML

Bio

After getting sick for the third time within about a three-month period I decided to try and drown it out with tea. I never liked tea growing up, but in my early twenties my taste buds had finally changed enough to find the flavors.

Started with flavored blacks from Teavana (gasp), and now am primarily a white/green tea drinker. I’ve recently fallen in love with matcha.

I love teapots, tea cups, and tea sets, but mainly use my Timolino or Contigo travel mugs because they’re leak-proof and hold the heat for so long! Drinking a cup of tea before it gets cold usually doesn’t happen as I set it down and get distracted with something else only to return to it when it’s (if I’m lucky) lukewarm.
