I do enjoy tea myself, but loose tea is hard to come by on the shelf in the grocer. Bagged tea tastes like it was strained through a gym sock to me. I'm more or less reduced to twinings loose English breakfast, gunpowder green, Earl grey, and if I can find it, Irish breakfast. I really do love the Irish breakfast but it's hard to come by where I am.

Today, 1 pint of Ceylon black tea. Second time I tried Ceylon tea, tastes like Assam, but lighter, I think? I have a hard time putting it into words what makes it different, and why I like the regular Assam I have better.

Also, Harney threw in some free samples. Just tried a flavored white tea, vanilla/grapefruit. Flavored teas aren't my thing. They all smell nice, but the tea itself seems more like an afterthought, and it always seems like it takes the backseat to the added flavor.

Most flavored teas taste like I'm drinking incense.

Speaking of good old animated uncle Iroh, remember his favourite tea, jasmin tea? I just want to say that jasmin tea is the best tea indeed. But not just any kind, because I had a cup of jasmin pearl tea this summer, and now I don't want to live without it. If you ever see this tea in a shop or restaurant, I implore you to try it. Even if it's the first cup of tea in your life, after a life of hating tea.


Unfortunately for me, Jasmine tea was disappoint. My mind is tainted, so I can't help but think of jasmine/flowery soap when I drink jasmine tea. I would still drink it, but it doesn't bring me joy.

The worst tea I've had was hibiscus tea. The acidity invokes the taste of vomit, and that's crazy to me because I've never tasted anything else that I would say tastes like vomit.

Today's tea: still trying out more of my haul. A black tea from Rwanda. 1 pint for work, one big cup in the morning using the second steep, and 1 pint just now. The first pint was really good. Brewed for 4 minutes, and it had a medium body and delicate/floral flavors. The pint I made just now was 5 minute brew, and it was full bodied, and I couldn't taste the appealing floral notes earlier. It's on par with breakfast tea, but with minimum astringency. Favorite tea so far from the haul. I guess I should consider shorter brewing times more often, because 5 minutes is standard.

Just black for me. I like mine really strong. I have a 24 ounce mug that I will put 5 bags in. A little sugar too. Just enough to cut some of the bitterness.

Today's tea: a pint of Ceylon tea, brewed 3 minutes. Feels medium bodied that way, and fragrance comes out in its taste now, but it wasn't amazing. Also, gifted this one away, but I still got to try it. A pint of chamomile, lavender, and cornflower blend. I could only taste the chamomile, I'm guessing it's because I'm not familiar with the other flowers. A little disappointed, but it was still a good pint of tea.
