I started today with some Scottish Breakfast Blend from Upton-- serious tea for a seriously tired tea drinker.
Unfortunately, I decided to experiment by using more leaf. I won't make that mistake again anytime soon! Oh well, chalk it up to experience, I guess.
In the afternoon, I had my first taste of Kukicha. It was strange, but a good strange, I think. I'll probably have some more tomorrow. I'll sure be glad when my utiliTEA arrives, though; isn't there a saying about how a watched thermometer never cools, or something?
