Backlogging. Sunday morning.

Another blah-feeling allergy day. I went with a nice cup of Ceylon since I wasn’t feeling a smoky or drying black. I needed a nice morning black tea and this cup met that need.

I forgot that I usually add a liberal pinch of fresh leaves to the 2nd steep of this to keep it from being on the weak side. (I’ve been drinking mostly Jackee and the Tiger in the morning, which will take a 2nd steep with no new leaves.) So it was on the weak side. Still drinkable and it got drank.

2nd steep: 5 min, 205° F.

205 °F / 96 °C 4 min, 0 sec

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.
