Backlogging. 8 days ago. Monday late night.

The February Backlog: From the 1st to today.

I needed a less caffeinated tea for late night online time in bed at my parent’s. I found two bags of this when I was looking. (They do not have pretty much any non-caffiene/less caffeine options.) I wasn’t expecting this tea to be very good as I haven’t had good experiences with decaffeinated bagged black teas so far. Mostly, they’ve just tasted like whatever flavor they are supposed to be, overpoweringly so, and zero black tea taste.

This was a pleasantly good apricot, not overly strong, with a bit of black tea taste in the background. I would readily drink it again late at night and not in the ‘well, this is all I have so I suppose it will have to do’ way. I’m rating it a 60 (bagged tea nice range 50-60).

I’m 33 years old, studying pharmacy, and have a surly cat named Bin. I love tea, coffee, beer, wine, and most things food and beverage related. I also love music, movies, reading, writing, and learning new things.

I’ve drank tea all my life but about five to six years ago, my close friend Spautz got into tea and got me more into tea. I drink black teas and tisanes/herbals most. Since receiving a variable temperature kettle from my parents for Xmas this past year, I’ve been drinking more greens, oolongs, and whites. I’m very very new to puerh. That is, I’ve had only one.
