Very pleasingly, this tea also works delightfully well if you brew it ‘Grandpa style’ – I took the leaves from my earlier infusions and left them in the bottom of a travel-mug/tumbler and filled it with just-off-the-boil water. I then topped it up, throughout my shift at the hospice, and it held up really well – it brewed some really delicious, refreshing tea and never became bitter.

It helped keep me warm, too, on the bus there and back. It’s amazing how much colder it was tonight – it really did feel like November…!

Junior doctor and casual tea-drinker.

It’s been a busy few years for me – I’ve graduated from med school and I’m now working full time as a junior doctor in a small UK hospital. I’ve returned Steepster to continue to learn, take recommendations and share my experiences :-)

I remain particularly keen to try lots of new teas, especially Pu Erhs and Oolongs!

I’m also happy to swap, particularly within the UK! If you see anything in my cupboard that you wanna try, please don’t be afraid to ask! Most of them I have at least 25 g of, so a 5 g sample or so will be no trouble :-)
