And lastly, I took this to work planning to treat myself on Friday. But I was so bunged up that it almost felt wasteful…

But when I got around to a friend’s house, in the evening, he very kindly prepared me a good quantity of off-boiling water in a latte glass, expecting me to want tea. I felt it would be rude to refuse, and I did kinda want some, so I sprinkled some of the leaves on the top and watched them as they unfurled in the glass. Latte glasses are actually a pretty excellent vessel for greens, whites, and green oolongs, it would appear. Everyone that saw it was pretty mesmerised hahaha.

And this tea is still exceptional. One of my all-time favourites, for sure!

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 :-)
