Okay so, I had planned to eat a very late breakfast of warm buttered banana bread and thought this tea would make a delightful accompaniment. After I’d already put my new variable temp kettle on to heat and portioned the tea out into the steeper, I decided I would rather eat the salad I’d be planning on having later then. (Romaine and spinach, orange bell pepper, sun-dried tomato, rosymary ham, sharp white cheddar, and balsamic vinaigrette, in case you were wondering.)

So I ended up eating my salad, drinking half my mug of tea, heating up some soup because it wasn’t a large salad and I was still hungry, eating that, and then drinking the rest of my mug of tea.

I made a second steep which I didn’t end up drinking this afternoon and will heat up and have in the morning.

I currently have a cup of Numi’s African Nectar, a tropical flavored rooibos, steeping up on my desk and it smells so good.

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.
