... finished a great TD with a prelim tasting of Yame Fukamushi from our birthday boy Xell! :mrgreen:

I hope everyone had a great TD.

Today's topic will carry over to Wednesday. Please continue to discuss yesterday's topic.

As a bonus please share any other changes to your tea enjoyment.

And of course share what is in your cup throughout the day.

Bottoms up!

Roasty toasty oolongs for me, though I often tend to gravitate towards those anyways. 2009 Traditional Roast Tie Guan Yin from Norbu in my cup this morning. Yum.

Still drinking Sayamakaori sencha this AM, but with a chilly rainstorm outside, my cat has decided my lap is the perfect spot, so a cozier, snugglier sencha-start-to-the-day today.

I tend to drink more heavier roasted oolongs and black tea once it gets chilly--right now I find myself craving a cup of da hong pao or bai hao more often than not. Or occasionally some golden monkey, though I'm not a big black tea connoisseur ... :)

Good TeaDay, everyone! Hope it is a great one ...

A great start here, Takumi from Zencha with the Mrs.

Hoping to weigh all the samples and package OTTI 11 today. :shock:

Its just beginning to cool off here in Louisiana. Highs in the low 90's, but sometimes reaching upper 50s at night. I will be shifting my tea drinking shortly. Next order I place will include more yancha. Mostly drink sencha and greener oolong in the summer, though not exclusively, and sencha is a year round staple.

2011 lishan from FLT today. This has grown on me substantially since I first opened it.
