Yesterday, most responders indicated they do not vary their tea tastes by changing seasons, but most felt their tastes are changing nevertheless. You may still vote and discuss yesterday's topic.
Welcome one and all to TeaDay. Brew some tea and come share what is in your cup through out the day. Be sure to check out what fellow TeaChatters are sipping as well. If you need to, you can also reflect back on your TeaDay.
Today's TeaPoll and discussion topic was suggested by Hop. Since he put the word "thinking" in quotes, I suppose you can interpret this in a number of ways. Please share your thoughts on how much you "think" about tea typically.
I am looking forward to hearing about what is in your cup, and your thoughts on tea today!
I usually spend hours looking at teas online, surfing chat rooms and blogs, and of course drinking tea each day. I'm completely obsessed. It's even surpassed my obsession with kitchenwares (why do I have three different patterns of table settings?) and movies (up to 1100+ blu-rays and dvds).
Currently drinking 2007 Xiaguan "FT" #4 raw pu thanks yet again to King Sal. Love it yo.
Specifically "thinking" about tea is for me less than 30 min a day. I actually prefer drinking tea, discussing and reading about tea.
Most of my "thinking" about tea is planning what tea to buy, resisting buying some really cool teaware, planning some experimentation, anticipating while riding home after work what tea I will drink...
This morning keemun with breakfast and sencha karigane.

I have visions of June Cleaver. Seriously. My kids wanna move in with you!
The only "thinking" I do about tea is what I'm going to choose at any given time and the brain pops that happen when I learn something here.
This morning, Adagio's Spring Darjeeling, which I'm very much enjoying.
Like Trioxin, I'm a little obsessed, so I guess I'd say "less than 90." A lot of this is visiting here and also visiting tea vendor websites.
Starting the day off with a very nice tea from Tao of Tea called Mirik Valley. I guess it's an off-Darjeeling as it from a location about 30 miles away. Pleasantly astringent and a little spicy. I definitely recommend this to Darjeeling lovers.
Some days I'd say very little, only when I drink it. Other days the amount of time I'd spend thinking about it goes up dramatically if I'm messing around with it at work, or working on the blog. It just depends on how involved my day is with tea.
