drank Eight at the Fort by Harney & Sons
1904 tasting notes

I know black teas generally aren’t much good for resteeping, but I’ve noticed that there is a smattering of green tea leaves in this tea suggesting that it might be a blend of black and green (although definitely more of the former than the latter). So I decided to go for it with the leaves from this morning.

I added on an extra minute to this morning’s steeping time, I think it worked out to about 5.5 minutes. The result is a little thin but still nice and drinkable. I know tea is supposed to be a warming beverage in general, but there’s something very ‘warm’ about the taste of this particular blend.

Boiling 5 min, 30 sec

I’m a university student in her twenties who’s currently working her way toward a Bachelor of Natural Resource Science degree. I love both science and science-fiction and I’m a history nut on top of that. Maybe I should just call myself a nerd and leave it there. ;)

I’ve been drinking tea since I was young but it’s only in the past couple years that I’ve become interested in the good-quality stuff.
