Yesterday's tea: tried the last tea from my haul, a tea from thailand. It was black tea, but it was more like oolong. Purposefully, some of the leaf was not oxidized. Anyways, 1 pint of it, 1 cup resteeped. It was ok. Certainly, a very unique taste that has no comparison.

Also had a pint of my yixing black tea at dinner

Todays tea: A pint of yixing black tea for work.

Home from work. Just made some masala chai. I love this stuff. Haven't been making it recently because I didn't have milk/sugar, and it takes effort. Gotta make it the traditional way, or else it tastes like any other tea with milk but with spices added.

1-2 tablespoons of masala chai mix, 1 cup of milk, 1 cup of water, 1-2 tablespoons of sugar. Mix 1 cup of water, sugar, and masala chai mix. Bring to boil, boil 2-3 minutes. Add 1 cup of milk. Bring to boil, and when it's starting to foam over, take it off the heat, strain it, and it's ready.

Yesterday's tea: Morning pint of Rwandan tea. 3 minute brew. I think I should have brewed it longer. Or maybe, it might just be completely arbitrary why I liked it less than before. Night pint of Masala chai. I used the last amount of my better chai mix. The other mix I have has it's cinnamon overpower the other spices.

Today's tea: Morning pint of generic black tea that I can't find much information on. I think it's Assam. Or maybe, I'm just uncultured and say any tea that I find boldness as it's main attribute, is an Assam tea. Afternoon pint, was the second sample from my tea haul. A green tea flavored with citrus. Same complaints about flavored teas, but at least the citrus in this wasn't that overpowering.

Yesterday's tea: Morning pint of a blend of Chinese black tea. I should have ordered more of it, because I like it a lot, but I wanted to keep sampling new teas.

Night pint of Chamomile. That chamomile/lavender blend a few days ago did taste better.

Today's tea: Morning pint of definitively Assam, because it says assam on the box. This one has some astringency to it.

Night pint of a Nilgiri black tea. Second tasting. It tastes more like an oolong than a black tea.

I tend to only rotate through a small group of flavors of tea. I feel if I try some exotic ones I've never had, that it will kill the interest I've built up for tea over the years. :P

(P.S. the names of tea also seem a little too "overdone" to me)

I went to get some loose black tea from Winco the other day. I looked at the price and it looked ok a bit under $2, but then I saw that it was $2 an ounce!!!! It was freaking $30+ a pound.

Needless to say, I did not get any.

I used to get loose black tea in Olympia for a decent price, it was still much more then buying bagged tea mind you, but it wasn't insane (more like $5 a pound or something).

I'll stick to my liptons (which isn't the cheapest option, but it's the cheapest option that doesn't taste horrid.....to me).

100 bags for $3 in general (unless you get them on sale, in which case I stock up). That comes out to about 3 cents per bag, and adding in creamer and sugar, about 5 cents per cut of tea. It's tasty, I like it, and it's a super cheap alternative to just water (which honestly costs almost as much I get 1 gallon of crystal geyser for 80 cents...which if I actually think about it, is probably more expensive than my tea (considering I boil tap water for the tea).

Anyway, you get used to the tea you use. I used to buy more expensive tea, and it did taste better, but, I truely enjoy a good cup of liptons tea and it tastes great, as long as I have not had a better cup recently to compare it to, I don't miss anything.
