The breakfast mug of tea backlog. Today.

I wanted teh smokiness. In my large pale blue drippy-glazed pottery mug. Good!

This one I did a second steep of, but I realized once I had it at my desk that I’d need to get ready to meet a friend before I could finish the mug so I stuck in the fridge. Drinkable and good, I did not like it cold as much as I like it hot. The flavors aren’t as strong and the mouth feel is totally different. I could taste teh smokiness but it wasn’t quite the same. I would not ice this one on purpose.

2nd steep: 6 min 30 sec.

205 °F / 96 °C 3 min, 45 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.
