Backlogging. Morning, two Sundays ago.

This was my second time drinking this Bai Lin Gong Fu and as I advised myself after drinking it the first time, I used more leaf this time. Using more leaf definitely worked out well. The tea was quite enjoyable through all three steeps I made of it. Also, upon opening the container I emptied the sample foil sack into, I could totally smell tomatoes. A tomato plant on a hot summer day even. I like smelling this tea. I look forward to drinking this one again.

(And this is the kind of tealog you get when you wait too long after drinking the tea to write the tealog.) Also, I’m not entirely sure about the times for the second and third steep but think I mimicked the times I used the first time.

2nd steep: 3 min.
3rd steep: 5 min.

175 °F / 79 °C 2 min, 0 sec

I’m 33 years old, studying pharmacy, and have a surly cat named Bin. I love tea, coffee, beer, wine, and most things food and beverage related. I also love music, movies, reading, writing, and learning new things.

I’ve drank tea all my life but about five to six years ago, my close friend Spautz got into tea and got me more into tea. I drink black teas and tisanes/herbals most. Since receiving a variable temperature kettle from my parents for Xmas this past year, I’ve been drinking more greens, oolongs, and whites. I’m very very new to puerh. That is, I’ve had only one.
