FP. apparently you set up these polls just as I'm going checking my email before going to bed. I'm not stalking you, really.

I've got a indeterminate green wild puerh sample that a tea friend/teacher gave me from her private stash that I've been putting off tasting. It has patty's day written all over it.

Not much for holidays (especially considering I'm usually forced to work them) so it's tea as usual for me. A very nice Puttabong first flush Darjeeling for me right now. Just doesn't get any better.

My Dragon Well today is dark green, but that's purely coincidence.

I plan to start in on the Fuka-Midori as soon as I dispatch my kids off to school. Today is my first day working from home with all my tea and pots in one location! I am spending the time I would have been on the road walking my dog.

Enjoying adagio's sencha premier this morning.

Last night, I had dragonwell's honeybush vanilla--I liked it a lot! It had a different taste than red rooibos--less of that "pipe scent", too, to borrow Mary's words.

Happy St. PatTEA's Day!

I forgot it was St. Pat's Day...I had Chai this morning but I'll try to fit in a cup of green latter.

While I won't be drinking green-ish teas today exclusively, I plan on an oolong later, perhaps a green tea. We'll see.

No green tea yet but Irish Breakfast if it counts.

Green tea, mostly because that's what I normally drink.

Then maybe black beer after class.

I have GREEN in my cup, but I would have anyway. I will have green something in my cup all day.

Drinking Sencha Tokusen from Ono prefecture. Today, I went with the package directions hoping to improve upon my previous failures over my first 2 attempts. It sems better...but jeez. 7 grams per 200 ml, this should be overflowing with flavor. It is very mild to the point of being flat. Not at all what I would expect from a top tier sencha costing 30 bucks.

I have been ill for a few days, so I didn't drink much tea (and other hot beverage) because of the fever.
I had Keemun this morning with my breakfast and haven't been drinking any tea so far (My workday is now over).
Perhaps a hatsumi sencha later in the evening, if I don't go right now to sleep.
