Backlogging. Wednesday afternoon, the same day as the previous tealog.

I made this cup of tea to go with a meal or right after a meal, I forget. I’ve been oddly wanting tea as my beverage with food and thinking about what tea might go well with the food. Or thinking about what I’m planning to eat and then thinking a certain tea would be good with that. But I digress. Another tea failure occurred because of the user. Yes, I know. Two tea failures two days in a row on two green teas no less. The first steep was quite good and I totally meant to drink more. But I forgot about the leaves or remembered briefly intending to go back and never did. This one is not quite as much a loss as yesterday’s because I have quite a bit of this tea and while good, I do not like it as much as Jasmine Green.

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.
