This morning I had Thomas. I woke up. I wanted Thomas. And gosh darn it, I had him.

He came out perfectly. Floury. Baked. Honey. If someone gave this to me to taste, I’d swear they put honey into it. It’s amazing that the taste is there without the honey. So yum!

2nd steep: 5 min 30 sec, 205° F.
Cooled to perfect drinkable warmness before I got to it. Delicious. Comforting. It really has been a perfect few tea days here.

1st steep.

200 °F / 93 °C 3 min, 30 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.
