my tea day:

Adagio Irish Breakfast - Can't say I really liked it
Barley Tea - Picked this up at the local Fubonn, YUM
Fujian Oolong - really good but I over did it on my second steeping.

Looks like I'm in the minority.

Slow day, some powdered sencha in the morning and some guricha in he evening.

I couldn't see myself caring this much about tea if I just liked the flavor. Tea would be kind of hollow without a deeper meaning or representation.

Today, my tea waited until tonight. I'm not in much of a mood for artisan, so I had a mini tuocha. Actually, two. When this first finishes, I'll start the second. The only name associated is 'Simao.' But it's not worth looking up. It's just not remarkable. Though I find it quite drinkable.

Finished the day with Daily Sencha...it is difficult to follow a Premium Sencha with a Daily Sencha 2nd flush.

Still...3 different senchas today...life is good.
