This is the only tea made up for the travel mug today, as I a) got up really late for my meeting, and b) only stayed at work for the meeting, and then came home. I definitely like milk oolongs warm and not hot. Hot, not enough milkiness comes out for me. So drinking my thermos-ful about 8 hours later was perfect :D
I’m almost out of this one now too, after sipping down the DT version a bit ago… but I did order a couple Jin Xuans from Tealux, so those are next up before I get to go all ordering crazy.
I cannot focus at ALL today. I slept badly and am facing a huge decision in probably the next few days… whether or not to stay here and commit to a PhD in an area which will be extremely challenging for me, which also means that I won’t be done school until I’m over 30… Gah. Major decision stress, on top of the fact that I’m supposed to be finishing my Masters project by April….
Anyways… drinking some of this in the hopes of finding some sort of answers?? Or at least, a way to focus and make some progress on work… I’ve been sitting here for nearly an hour and a half and all I’ve managed to do is drag a few calculations down an Excel column, and trim a substantial number of split ends… Well, at least this tea is delicious and reliable. Sigh.
(Yep, sorry, hardly a tasting note at all, just a life rant. Bleh.)
Almost gone :( I think there’s maybe a scant travel mug’s worth left of this one now. Luckily, I have a few others to replace it, so I won’t need to pick up any more for a while. This one’s tasty as always, although I think my tastebuds are craving something a bit fruitier right now… I wish I had time to go investigate and find exactly what they want, but I really don’t…
My sincerest apologies – I’m going to be a bit of a tealogging machine in the next few minutes, because I haven’t logged any teas all day yet have been drinking them and playing board games/chatting with Sil, Indigobloom, and Raritea all day! And Steepster wasn’t behaving on my phone.
Anyhow, started off the day with an absolutely fabulous travel mug of this one. Probably one of the best cups I’ve brewed of it yet! Currently enjoying a re-steep as well, since these leaves have a lot left in them!
Note to self: don’t make 2 thermos-fuls of tea next time you go to the airport, because it will turn out that by the time the tea cools enough to be drinkable, you’re already at the airport, and then you have to chug an entire litre of tea before going through security, because of course you can’t just dump absolutely delicious/perfectly good tea out!! True story. And yes, I drank all four cups worth of tea (2 of this and 2 of Cashew Turtle). Luckily, it seemed I was dehydrated anyhow.
Anyways! This was tasty in a thermos, no surprise. I even saved the once-used tea leaves in their infuser in a ziploc, and packed it in my checked bag, and re-steeped it today. Still tasty. Haha, I felt like an addict or something though.
