Decided to brew up some tea tonight to hopefully calm and relax me. It’s been crazy around here lately and I need to center myself again.
After a rinse, first steeping was 5 seconds, 205F… result is sweet and earthy, with a thick mouthfeel reminiscent of cream or butter. Reminds me a little of sweet potato.
Second steeping, 7 seconds, tastes like a mix of sweet potato, green plantain, and custard. This steeping reminds me of the sweetness present in a roasted oolong, but without the roasted edge.
Third steeping is brothy and thick, but sweet. A sweetness that covers my entire tongue and down the back of my throat. Really really delicious.

I am very excited to delve into as many different types of tea as possible… so this should be interesting. I am really looking forwards to tasting all the wide array of flavours that can come from pure tea leaves.

Currently, I am having a love affair with oolongs. Mostly green, though I am stretching out into more oxidized oolongs. Black teas are also in my love fest as they can be so surprising sometimes (I used to drink bagged red rose x.x)
I would really love to get to know green tea a lot more and white tea.. all tea to be honest. I want to know them all.

Tea rating system:

0-50: Do people actually enjoy this?
50-60: Slight improvement, not recommendable.
60-70: Alright, though easily forgettable.
70-80: Good flavour, though not a ‘go to’ tea.
80-90: Great tea – complex and memorable.
90-100: Extremely delicious and complex teas that leave me craving more.

On top of tea, I have a love for music. Generally all music, though I am partial to indie rock/folk/pop/electronic. Follow me if you also enjoy indie music and would like to trade some artists!

I’m always open to new tea and music suggestions. Happy tea drinking to you all.
