Another one from this morning. I don’t have a lot of tea drinking time today but i wanted to kick off the day with a couple cups as it’s HOT outside and i have a long day ahead of me with work and gaming. Here’s hoping i actually get some sleep in today as well. I overleafed this one a little today just to play with a little more and it worked out much better. the flavour is a lot richer and closer to what i want from this sort of tea.

don’t brew this on western. Today i had a mini gonfu session with this tea and it is MUCH better. It’s still a little “heavy” for me, so maybe i need to get through the first infusions a little faster (akak don’t drink them). but this works with shorter steeps. Still won’t be a favourite tea, but at least i know how to make it work better for me now :) very leathery and earthy.

I think i’ve been pulling these DFTeas out of my cupboard in an effort to try and stave off my desire to purchase the newest blend. Love this one still, esp with a splash of maple syrup :)

Farewell less delicious than the first time tea. Here’s hoping your amazingness comes back to us this year.

I brought this one out today in light of A&D bringing out a new tea that i desperately want but will have to wait until after the wedding to think about purchasing. Thankfully it’s not a limited edition. I am still enjoying this one, and am finding with my second tin, that the tea has gotten better with age, maybe it had more of a chance to dry out? Who knows. Either way, i still rather enjoy this one!

So no real clue what to write about myself here. A friend got me into drinking loose tea and it’s something I thoroughly enjoy though I have nowhere near the experience that many folks on the boards seem to have.

My other interests are cycling, reading, board games, disney cruises, world of warcraft and dancing – in no particular order. I love travelling and am currently working on trying to get my other half to as many place in the world as possible.
