First day of classes, had some downtime so I thought I’d brew a cup of this before I run off to my next class. I don’t know what I’m going to do tomorrow, classes from 10 to 5 straight through in the part of campus where it’s hard to find food vendors. I’ll have to scarf down lunch in between classes. Will probably be making lots of sandwiches this semester! Anyway, I’ll deal with tomorrow when it comes.
I found a small packet of this tea when I was digging through my tea trunk (more of a storage container than trunk or box, but ‘tea trunk’ sounds nicer) last night. Brewed gongfu style, but I probably should have used a little more leaf.
The wet leaves smell like fall. Roasty and sweet. Kind of reminds me of the aftermath of the bonfires we had at my boarding high school, minus the smokiness. First steep, mineral taste with some sweetness.
Time to head to class! Definitely looking forward to more steeps of this later today.
