This isn’t usually a tea I drink in the morning, but it seemed just the right thing today. Excellent as always.
Pu-erh - Lapsang Custom Blend
This is a custom blend of my own invention: 60% Home Store Pu-erh and 40% Lapsang Strong Smoke, both from Seven Cups.
This blend will stand — as one might expect from the combination — very long steepings: 3 minutes for the first 2-3 and 4-6 minutes for the second 2-3.
I find it’s the perfect tea for cold weather, damp weather, and cold and damp weather.
