Wow, what a beautiful string of mini-posts, Chip!
I wanted to start the day with one of the Assam's I have been auditioning lately, but I forgot to take it to work so I turned for consolation to an autumnal darjeeling that I got last year from Thunderbold Tea in India and did three or four infusions of that. I've just moved on to the Yutaka Midori from O-Cha which I will infuse till late when I will finish the day with a series of infusions of a sheng puerh from among the many samples I am trying to use up!
But best of all has been reading all these other comments and feeling almost like I've shared each of these delicious drinks with all these tea-buddies. If I had to pick just one other place to have spent the day, I think it would be snowbound with procarel and all those great Chinese teas.
