female and definitely green for me, though i do love my oolongs.
today was a good and bad tea day for me. i had gyokuro, pouchong, iron goddess of mercy, peach and mango herbal, and silver needle. i was experimenting with foods for starting a teahouse and made a fantastic swiss fondue and a variety of sandwiches and breads. my guests were very happy with the tea and foods, so that made me feel better about my culinary skills. but... i broke one of my tea bowls. it slipped out of my hands when i was washing it and the sink is made of this very unforgiving heavy porcelain.
