My tastes do change, ever so slightly. In the winter I am more likely to reach for darker teas, be they oolongs or hong cha. Summer brings in a lot more Green Teas of all types.
On another note... I went to make matcha and I noticed something, that I have no clue when it happened.Chip

It does not appear that it broke into the clay, so my guess is it was a weak spot in the glaze, and it got bumped by something, perhaps a kettle when I was pouring water into it and it just knocked that little piece off.
