I started doing this one pseudo gongfu.

Before I added the water, but there was just a touch of water in my brew basket, I was amazed at the scent from the leaves. Wow. Beautiful.

It made me hungry.

I did a couple of those pseudo gongfu infusions, and I felt like the tea had so much more to offer. It was nice, but not what I wanted.

So I did a western infusion with the leaves at this point. Much better. Rich, almost fruity, sweet. I love the aroma.

Much happier.

I think I like the greener oolongs brewed more gongfu and the roastier ones more western.

Still relatively new to drinking teas, or so I feel, even though I’ve been at it for several months now.

I’m drinking more and more of different varieties of tea.

It’s been a few months that I’ve been on here. I’ve expanded from greens and flavored teas to now I’m all about the oolongs and some unflavored blacks. I’m mostly drinking unflavored teas now, but there are a few of those flavored ones that have a special place in my heart.

Pu-erh is also something I’ve recently found that I enjoy.

I have four kitties and a spouse.
