I think I have food poisoning. I got sick at work and had to leave 2 hours into my shift. I’ve gotten sick a few more times since then. So I’ve been sipping on some broth and some tea and trying to settle my stomach. Green tea is usually a good choice for doing so.

1 tsp, 8oz water, 175F, 60s.

Hmm, vegetal and savory, a bit bitter and astringent. The flavor is good, so I’m going to try lowering the temperature and decrease the time.

1tsp, 8oz water, 130F, 30s.

This is just what I need my delicate stomach. Soft, gentle, soothing. Smooth with no bitterness or astringency. Vegetal, a bit like spinach, with a touch of citrus and a hint of melon. I love knowing that this is just as good hot as it is cold brewed. When I’m feeling better I might try slightly warmer. Either way, it’s yummy and calming.

I’m starting to grow tired of green teas and green oolongs.
I’ve only recently began exploring straight blacks and puerhs, and I’ve been loving the one with cocoa and bread-like notes the most!
I’m also starting to drift away from flavored teas, but still like a good dessert tea every once in awhile.
I will always love a good chai.
I despise licorice and bacon.
