Today was a break from cold teas, could not resist much longer :) Had 2 bowls of matcha and morning Ureshino tamaryokucha. Now drinking hot houjicha, after all, i like it a bit better hot, than cold. Also thinking of getting some gyokuro again, somehow started to miss it, hehe.

Great teaday yet again :mrgreen:

My wife reminds me of a gift she sweetly bought me once that we both didn't like. This stuff is the absolute pits, I don't care what any of these reviewers say. Citron Oolong:

I can't for my life understand what someone would like in this tart, acidic, flower bath.

Drinking houjicha from Maiko. Has a slightly fruity/malty flavor that reminds me of a red tea kinda sorta.

Today, teas have not been wicked at all. Started the day with some Anxi TGY from Norbu, then moved on to a series of cold-brewed teas, mostly the Da Yu Ling from Dragon Tea House, but also some not-so-nice cold brewed sencha (too much leaf, had to dilute that one a bit) and a Mao Feng that was brewed long enough (forgotten in the fridge for about 72 hours) to get a little bitter. Oops!

Now pondering some hot tea as the evening cools. I'm feeling a need for puerh.....
