From getting up through my morning routine and feeding the cats to tea making time, I could not decided between Jackee, Thomas, and the Tiger. I opened my cupboard and the Tiger was dominating the forward teascape. So he went into my cup. Bold and enjoyable as usual. Lots of stuff going on so not as much an a sit-down-and-enjoy-the-tea-straight-though drinking experience.

Before tealogging the Tiger, I was skimming tealogs I hadn’t read on his page and came across takgoti’s on lower steeping times for blacks, which I tend to prefer too. She’s steeping her Tiger lower than I am so I intend to try lowering the steep time next time I have him. After the second steep of him this afternoon, that is.

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.
