Since the Earl Grey proved ineffective, it was up to my travel tin of Scottish Breakfast to save the day! Help me Scottish Breakfast Blend, you’re my only hope!

Oh yeah, this is definitely more what I need in the morning. Nice and strong, a little bitter, very aggressive tea. There is an odd undertone to it this morning that I am having difficulty placing, however. It’s not exactly the oversteepedness that I got in my other note…it seems almost…woody? I don’t know, but it’s there, and it’s driving me crazy!

Deliberately oversteeped because I am VERY sleepy.

Boiling 8 min or more

I’m a Pole who grew up in Texas, is currently a graduate student in California studying Japan. How’s THAT for random?

Being Polish, my family has always drunk a lot of tea, and I am no different. I may drink more tea than water. On the other hand, I can’t say that I’m very particular about it; I’m generally pretty careless with steeping times and water temperature and I don’t even have a proper teapot (mostly because the lid broke during the move to California ;_;).

I always drink my tea unsweetened and I only add milk in the case of the most egregiously chai-ish of chais. (not really a big fan of milk in general)

Given that so many of my entries seem to be about my morning tea, I felt I should add something here about me and mornings: I fail at mornings. I fail at them a LOT. Therefore I often also fail at proper tea making in the mornings.
