So, I recently read an article about “Grandpa Style” tea preparation over at marshaln.com, so I decided to try it out with this tea. For those of you who don’t know, this means I put the leaves in a cup, and add more hot water when I start to get low.

The results were truly interesting. Because there were not discrete infusions, I experienced the full spectrum of what this tea had to offer. It was interesting to taste the subtle transition to the slightly vegetative-yet-sweet tea that it becomes in the latter infusions. Truly a great way for me to finish my day.

Bio

I am a university student, studying Computer Science, who found that I really enjoy a nice cup of tea. I finally got into loose-leaf tea in August of 2011. I am currently in the process of expanding my horizons, and have found that I have a particular fondness for Oolongs in general, and Wuyi Yanchas in particular. The unique mineral taste is very appealing to me, as well as a nice Sencha. More recently, I’ve developed a taste for Sheng puerh, white tea, and black teas. The only things I’ve tried that I didn’t like was Shu puerh, but that might have been because it was quite young. Regardless, I’ve been slowly expanding my horizons, so if you have any recommendations, please feel free to send me a PM.

Just for the heck of it, my other interests include classical musics (Bach, Mozart, Beethoven, Verdi, Debussy, Shostakovitch, Rachmaninoff, Liszt, and Wagner, to name a few composers). I also have a fondness for a bit more modern music, like The Beatles, all Jazz (by all, I really do mean all), Gorillaz (I love Demon Days), and a couple of Indie artists you will never run across unless you play a lot of semi obscure Indie games. Also, I love cats.
