First time back on TC in over a year.
I feel such shame. I just had a day at school where my teacher heard of my love of artisan teas and demanded I bring some to try. So I dug around my tea shelves looking for something that wasn't stale. I managed to find a Rou Gui that brewed up decent and a Bai Hao Oolong that was still very much drinkable. We had a great time the last day of class drinking those teas and I suddenly realized how badly my tea hobby has been neglected.
Anywho... I normally don't take anything in my tea when I'm making for myself. Though I do on occasion make a rice milk chai for my brother when he visits and my wife is always asking for tea smoothies (ice, tea, coconut milk, and agave nectar). I'm also not opposed to drinking a "normal" cup of tea when eating out with my family. In that case I always have to add a little honey to liven up the brew.
Nothing in my cup today as I have little to brew and have a 50 hour work week to keep me busy, but next week I'm going to start cleaning off my shelves of old tea and drinking what I can before I do a massive clean up to prepare for this year's harvest.
Sorry for the really long post. I haven't had any TC in over a year so that's my excuse.
