Yesterday’s leaves; tossed in a scant half-teaspoonful to freshen them up, and left them longer than the recommended three minutes, which I think was a little long. The fruity zing I bragged on yesterday is more like licking a cast iron skillet this morning. Upton means three minutes, not five and a half :)

Still drinkable.

Somebody asked me once when I became a tea junkie; I think it dates back to college when I needed caffeine for a 7 a.m. class but chose not to do coffee. My favorite teapot is a medium-sized Brown Betty given to me by my Mema; the painted flowers are chipping off, but the size and feel is perfect. I rejoice when I get a morning to brew a pot of loose tea starting with a kettle; not a bag and a hot pot.
