This afternoon I'm having some kind of unknown, unmarked Pu from the great Northwest.

And my TeaDay has come to an end with a few glasses of minty Moroccan tea, a perfect end to a delightful dinner at...you guessed it...a Moroccan restaurant.

Today was quite a TeaDay. Earlier in the afternoon, I shared a couple of steeps of Silver Needle with one of my neighbors.

I voted other because i'm constantly changing what teas I'm drinking and trying new things. I guess its that I just havent found my go to teas yet, although I deff am looking for some black and oolongs teas that I can buy regularly. Sometimes my tea tastes change on a whim or over time due to unforeseen events, although never with the season or in any kind of ordered fashion.

I started my day off with a nice gongfu sessionin my gaiwan with dong ding oolong from rishi. That was pretty tasty, somewhat creamy and a little sweet. I had some kind of fruit rooibos, cant exactly remember the name, and now I'm having some 2006 Arbor Yinhao Tuocha which i'm really liking :)
