Unless he joined in the morning. Then it's been almost 2 days.

Started the day with a cup of White Mangosteen from Let's Do Tea. White tea with mangos and mangosteen and who-knows-what other "flavourings". Smells odd, but tastes pretty good, especially if you like a sweet tea. Re-steeped it tonight to make my evening glass of iced tea and it still had plenty of flavor.

Also made a strong cup of Flintridge Chai as a base for a morning protein drink.
At work kept re-infusing Oolong 40 (added some lavender after 1st two).

Tea Day is a great idea, thanks Chip!

I started the day with Fuka-midori from Den's. Took the first two steeps from my Fukugata and put it into my Thermos. Delicious and it kept me from falling asleep in my 8AM class.

Hmm, I was thinking and figured that tea orders could be included, too? With the mention of Den's Tea, I looked them up and found a nice little special of a Green Tea Kit for only $3 which includes shipping and handling. Sigh, I guess one can not have enough tea or know too much about it. So that will be in my cup in the future. Yay!

Good find, LadyTiger! For everyone who isn't already a Den's customer, I strongly recommend their Green Tea Starter Kit. $3 for a few nice samples, a couple empty teabags if you need them, and wonderful green tea propaganda to leave by the coffee machine at work!

At the moment, I'm about to brew a second steep of a blend of Den's kukicha with Hibiki-an's fukamush superior.

Hey everyone, what a great thread!

Today and tomorrow were/are going to be high stress for me so I've been having Assam Melody (Adagio) and some random herbal blends. Indian tea just smells like "tea" to me and has a lovely calming effect. The herbals because I have to try to get some sleep tonight.

Yep, and we get to do it all over tomorrow!!!

I was surprised that Japanese tea beat out Chinese tea in today's poll question. In fact, had a very sizable lead all day.

I have to wonder if this a universal trend with the problems China has had recently.

I'm afraid I wimped out and drank Chocolate tea most of the day.
