There you go "thinking out loud" again!

I am glad you will try the oolong after all, I thought I woke up this morning in an alternate universe, where TeaChat and TeaDay scared people away from trying new teas as opposed to the poll of the day I wrote last night where we actually helped people to try new teas.

For fear of not liking Fukamushi sencha in this alternate universe, I am happy to report that I like it over here just as much as I do in the universe I came from! :shock: :wink: :D

This pu is finished.

On to a reminder that oolong > all any day. Got a Li Shan in my cup that is fantastic.

Just got back from the store and thought I'd try Rishi's organic Silver Needle since Im almost out of Adagios, and curiosity was killin this Kat on how they compared. Well Rishi doesnt stand a chance next to Adagio so Im glad I bought only a small tin :D

Never ordered from Japan before. And the pics from the matcha thread are just gorgeous.

Happy Fryday all.

I just had a little splurge and ordered my first gaiwan and sharing pitcher. (Does that mean I have to share?) It seems like a monumental occasion to me. Just to complete the day I also ordered some new samples from Adagio. Fun, fun.

Today I'm having some genmaicha from Den's Tea.

Yes, TeaChat and TeaDay have definitely caused me to try things I would not have considered otherwise. I loved green tea before I found this site but now I have been introduced to oolongs and have learned that not all black teas taste like an over steeped Earl Grey tea bag. It has been fun.

Today has been two steeps of White Tip Oolong so far.

Hmm. I must pass along a quote that someone said to me when I was a noob oh so long ago...

"Life is too short to drink bad tea."
