Good morning, everyone!

Started with my usual Yunnan Gold. Second steep is softer and finishes the wake up process quite nicely. :)

Not sure what's next on this drizzly Wednesday...perhaps some sort of oolong....?

Good Morning Tea Lovers!
I start my day with black today, and every day, usually an assam or an irish breakfast blend from Adagio- 2 cups and I'm good to go.
Then in a little while I break out the sencha from Den's and who knows where that will lead me.... :wink:

I just started my day out with some Russian Caravan from Upton iced because I didn't feel like brewing anything hot.

Update:
Later at dinner I drank iced Russian Caravan and iced Rum tea

nothing new for me I have been on a Pu-erh kick lately.

But I am starting to miss my Golden Yunnan for Bfast. Need to order more

So far this morning I'm finishing up the Adagio flavored oolongs...vanilla and peach. After a trip to the office supply store, I hope to have a sencha session w/ Chip's Yutaka Midori. *bliss!*

I'm drinking my first cup right now, which is Dong Ding from Teaspring. I don't think I like this Dong Ding, which is unfortunate. The first Dong Ding I tried was T-Ching's Frozen Peak Oolong and I absolutely loved its smooth floral and slightly fruity taste. This Dong Ding from Teaspring tastes like stale almonds and butter. I don't know if I got bad tea or not, but I've tried brewing gong fu with my yixing with short steeping times and I've tried using my ingenuiTea with longer steeps. Nothing is making this taste better.

"Natela's Gold," a Georgian black tea purchased from Tea Embassy in Austin.

Choice of today was H&S Holiday tea combined w/vanilla. Gives it a richer flavor.

Morning everyone. :D

I'm making some Japanese black tea. Makes up for my rule-breaking yesterday.
