*Finishing off the day with a few steeps of Wu's 2006 Reserve Ripe Pu-Erh. It is such a great every day Pu, it is certainly not the best, but it is quite pleasant and for the price (16$ for 350g) it cannot be beat! Anyway, happy brewing to all!

My Tea Day ended quite well though it was not overly productive. The remainder of the Vanilla Rooibos from this morning got stuck in the fridge when I got back from class with some left over. It tastes surprisingly good as iced tea.

I decided to sample the organic silver rain white tea again to see if more leaves would give it more flavor than the first time I tried it. The first time resulted in lightly scented water with no color. Using my gaiwan, the first steep today was a nice pale yellow and had a flavor that reminded me of a light green tea. It was okay, but not amazing. The second steep had something terrible happen to it and was absolutely awful. Either I steeped it too long or used water that was too hot or both. I gave up on the white tea after that.

Later in the evening, I made some Fuka-Midori. That made the Tea Day much better. There is nothing like green tea for making a day more enjoyable.

Oh, I feel all bad now that I've read the thread because I was going to criticize just a bit. (Mind you, my vote was a 5 because I do adore TeaChat.) :cry:

I think this is a wonderful forum and a wonderful group, but sometimes I really wish there was just a "chat" portion of the forum (people who know me in real life are dying right now, as, well, I never "chat") I know the chat window exists but it's just not quite the same. There are many interesting similarities (pet lovers/parents.students/teachers/sci-fi fans/etc.) within this group as well as some great differences, it really is sometimes nice just to talk about ourselves, and them.

Anyway. No tea today. Still terribly off-kilter from last Thursday and I haven't regained any sort of routine at all. Maybe tomorrow.
