I tasted the smokiness this time! Made quite a bit stronger just now than usual. A combination of losing track of steeping time, a bit more leaf than normal, and a bit less sugar than normal. A bit astringent too, probably because of oversteeping. I ordered another Breville Tea Maker for work since I love the one at home, so that will hopefully stop me from oversteeping too much in the future.

Single, vegetarian, asexual, 5 cats. Airplane Engineer. I drink most of my tea with a bit of sugar and all the ones with a black tea base with a little bit of milk too. I’m super sensitive to bitterness and spiciness so I tend to avoid those.

I am also a flavoured matcha latte fanatic.
