...ahh yes...wasting everyone else's time by asking questions about tea... on a tea message board.
It's against my better judgment but let me tell y'all something about myself. I am an old man in poor health who doesn't have much time to waste. I have been sick for the past week and yesterday, out of necessity, I had to force myself out of the house to do some things that couldn't wait any longer. While I was out anyway I came home with a new tea to try. It was the high point of my week. All it said on the label was Wuyi oolong.
I have been drinking tea for most of my life but knew practically nothing about teapots or brewing temperatures and the like, but since I found this board I found out how to do it right and my enjoyment of tea has increased exponentially. I realize that most of the time I'm probably being a pita
and risked raise the ire of the boards' more austere and ascetic members.
I will take your advice wyardly, and instead of asking any more questions I will do my own research from now on.
Thank you everyone on the board who helped me. Best wishes to all.
