Cruised through a really nice session of 2006 Li Shan green oolong. Savd the leaves for some evening tea with low caffeine.

Now I am enjoying Daily Sencha that I ever so lightly roasted, well...more lightly pan fired, delicious barley green tea taste.

I think everyone is crashed on a couch somewhere after losing an hour sleep last night. I spent a little time there myself...now I am good to go. Rested and caffinated...I am up to around stage 3 on the TCCS.

It's sunday, Chip. Aren't you glad you didn't have to go through all the clock changing junk tonigh? And drag your anatomy around Monday a.m.? I think Indiana residents are still not used to changing clocks. After having to switch the clock back for 2 years now, Indiana did a study and found out it actually COSTS us more money to go through all this! Not to mention the economic fallout it has caused small business.
I'm with you, Osadczuk! There is no reason for DST in a 24 hr economy!

Anyway, today is a decafe day. We just bought a big green egg and I'm smokin'!

:shock: :?:

I am sure the Gov. factored in the low productivity of changing the clocks back on a night before work and decided to ruin a Sunday instead.

The green egg also confounds me.

I will oonder this quandry while I slowly sip another round of Bai hao Yin Zhen ... dwindling my stock for the sake of the new harvest!

Please explain how you are saving the leaves.

Just left them sitting in my "psuedo gaiwan" where they will be OK for several hours.

Too late to start another tea here, so good thing I have some soggy leaves laying around.

Caffeine in tea really doesent effect me at all. For this reason, I chose "decaffinated".

Yes - I couldn't answer this because it didn't have a "Doesn't matter / I never consider it" option.

Oddly enough, though I decided I was close to Space's level, I figure I have a maintenance dose of caffeine to the point where it doesn't really do much. Lord help me if I ever think about going decaffeinated. I would probably go into a coma.

I'm usually in the Need More stage as well... but today my family came over, and we had tea twice for breakfast and lunch, in addition to my tea after waking and before dinner. I was Buzzing today. :shock:

Had oolong, green twice, and jasmine. I really love the aroma of my jasmine!!!

Today I had two rounds of Den's Shin-Ryoku and a round of some Rishi TGY, the second best TGY I've had a chance to enjoy.

I have a very high tolerance for caffiene. During my last Inventory at work, when I had to get there very early, in the span of 4-5 hours I had 3-4 cups of coffee, 2 cups of tea, 3 sodas, 2 Red Bulls, and a handful of dark chocolate covered espresso beans, and could not stay awake.

Of course after all that I was sick to my stomache.
