Chocolate flavored black tea. You see a pattern here? :shock:

First cup was one of my favorites - Ooooh Darjeeling.
Got to work and my Adagio order was waiting for me..yeah! Needed a new IngenuiTea (my old one wouldn't stop peeing all over the file cabinet), and now I can't decided which sample to try first...probably mandarin green.

Good Morning all! West coast checking in here - brrrrr very cold here in my office this morning. Off to a late start today so this is my first brew - Da Ye Wuyi oolong. My favorite Wuyi, this one is less roasted, sweet with a beautiful floral aroma. Just lovely. Have a nice day everyone!

Wow, I can make no sense of this poll. Yesterday, the first tea of the day choice seemed to be Japanese...typically green. Today, blacks are killing greens. (hmmm, that sounds a little strange) Go figure. Well, today, the black tea drinkers are rallying early!!!

I added my green vote, a late TeaDay start...starting with Guricha today, usually a later in the day tea for me. Am I wild and crazy or what???

Lessee..Today I started with Tevana peach oolong. I tried a second brew but I threw it out. Just not any good. Now I am drinking Tao of Tea's Lychee.

Guricha time expired after 5 nice steeps...

I am having Shi Feng Xi Hu Long Jing, aka, Lion West Lake Dragon Well. This is a really nice LJ, one of the best I think I ever had. The leaf sets are stunning, I just love spooning it out. The dry leaf, so nice and nutty smelling.

The brew is light, but really HQ, and not too light as some of the pricier LJ can be (and this is pricy).

This is great Long Jing. I feel priviledged to enjoy it.

Home from class for the day. Decided to go for more guri, but I oversteeped the third. It surprisingly turned out very good.

Having a third steep of wuyi that has gotten me through the afternoon. Only a few toasty, fruity notes left, but still quite nice!

Surprisingly and out of the blue, I was able to share my Long Jing with someone. I usually brew 200 ml for just myself for each steep. It was interesting only having 100 ml per steep for myself. Kinda fun. But the session flew by. I might consider 100 ml steeps for just myself, it was really different.

Now for some Yame sencha, my current fav tea that I have open.
