Okay, I’ve found my happy place with this tea. 180F brewed in a gaiwan for 15 seconds to start and increasing 5 seconds for every steep thereafter. I’ve pushed it to 7 times so far, but it can definitely go farther.

Still very floral, but with a sweetness reminiscent of corn. Smooth and light, but still comforting on a cold day (as opposed to very fresh greens that just make me wish spring would hurry up and get here).

A friend once asked me, if I could have anything in the world, what would I want? I immediately answered, “Superpowers, specifically superspeed like the Flash.” He said that didn’t count because it wasn’t real, so my second choice was a cupboard full of every flavor of tea in existence. He promptly told me that that was a waste of a wish and said he would ask for the world’s biggest yacht.

But the more I think about it, the more I’m sure that I made the better choice. Slowly saving up money for higher quality teas is helping to convince me. Off I go to taste as many teas as I possibly can (and maybe dream about superpowers along the way).
