A little early for me for tea. I shall have a reflective moment or 2 with a cup of stove top expresso.

I won't be drinking tea at exactly 11:11 am, but I know that before and after I'll continue to enjoy the Puerh that I started at 8:30 am. Its the last of a Mandarin Tearoom sample of 2000 Hon Tai Chang's Chi Tse Pin Cooked Pierh. The first few steeps were not that appealing to me but now that I've gone past 5 steeps each steep is better than the one before.

Good Puerh never gets boring.

Brew when you like, like when you brew. :mrgreen:

I was not drinking tea at the exact moment. Tea leaves were sitting cold and wet from first tea of the day, Guricha Gokujo from Xell with the Mrs. Came out really nice today!

And I will be brewing again soon ...

I've been drinking this wuyi from yunnan sourcing all morning. I think I probably should have used more leaf in my pot, but it's still been delicious. I think this is the most "standard" tasting tea of the oolongs I've been taking for test drives. It's got a strong tea base, a very very slight astringency, but a very smooth sweetness on the back-end. This is my third steep, and it's the best so far.

At 11/11/11 I was drinking the most awful of teas for the caffeine: a horrible, dry, dusty, stale fishy genmaicha, with more rice than tea, available from the only local loose-leaf tea store in the territory. This store carries five teas. :cry:
I ran out of 'real' tea and I'm waiting (not-so-patiently) for at least one of six orders to arrive...
So I'm wondering: does this mean that what comes after this auspicious tea-moment must surely get better? Or is this prophetic tea-moment an evil omen of worse to come... :?:

When the moment struck, I was on my second cup of Ruby Black (Sun Moon Lake #18) from Norbu. Yummy stuff.

I was working on some Yin Zhen Silver Needle from Jing Tea Shop this morning. Did not mark the time, too crazy/busy at work. But a good tea day nonetheless, now working with some Diamond TGY from Norbu.

At 11/11/11 11:11:11 I was enjoying sleeping in on the first day of my long weekend :lol:

Then much like Herb_Master I started caffienating with some espresso...two double shots just after lunch...and now I´m getting near to the end of a session of Yamashita Jirushi Gyokuro :mrgreen:

TD continued with Rou Gui from IPT served up in Seong-il pot, pitcher and cups. Since I did not specify 24 hour time, I was enjoying this at 11/11/11 11:11:11 pm. :mrgreen:

At 11/11/11 11:11:11 pm PST, I was enjoying some 2010 Fall Lao Tai Di (Old Plantation) Qing Xin from Norbu, bulk brewed for the thermos, on a long drive home. Haven't yet decided what tea to start today with yet.
