Today brewed this as a ‘tea in a hurry’: dumped a few teaspoons into the bottom of a quart thermos, added hot water from the water cooler tap, and went to my meeting. An hour and a half later, it is still delicious: no bitterness, astringency, still just sweet, toasty, delicious.

I love teas like this!

It is a wonderful thing to be able to trust a tea to tolerate this degree of ‘abuse’, because my work days do sometimes require that my tea tolerate this, or I have to go without for the afternoon. This and a handful of shu puerhs are the best I’ve found for those circumstances.

I agree! I often just toss the tea leaves in my travel mug and leave them there to steep. Puerh and houjicha have worked the best.

Bio

I’ve been drinking tea for 30 years, but only bought 2 brands of 2 different teas for most of that time. It took me almost 30 years to discover sencha, puerh, and green oolongs. Now I am making up for lost time.

I try to log most of my teas at least once, but then get lazy and stop recording, so # times logged should not be considered as a marker of how much a particular tea is drunk or enjoyed.
