Second steep yields a Lapsang Souchong with not much spicy-sweetness at all, and the smokiness being watered-down (even with brewing an additional 2 minutes). It’s definitely a one-steeper. Not a bad thing, just means that I’ll be making an order with Townshend’s much sooner than I thought.

My love of tea started in 2001, whilst in an internship in London, England. I shared an office with a lovely man who would make me a cup of tea every morning without asking me if I even wanted it. I drink my tea neat now, because I’ve yet to find the sugar/milk combination that lives up to Pablo’s.

I drink any and all kinds of tea, and love trying new brands/varieties/flavors.
