You all know what a sloppy steeper I am, but I am aware that timing can make the difference with some teas. I believe that may be the case here. First cup (4-ish minutes) was smooth and pleasant—I gave it a sweet wheat-bread rating. I took a bag to work and gave it 5-ish minutes, and what to my wondering tastebuds should appear but things that reminded me of mahogany, molasses, and apples—much more depth of flavor to ponder. This one doesn’t need to be hurried.

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.
