Forgot to save, again.

And Sipdown. Probably not a temporary one, since I’m currently not planning to make another order from GEPA, and I don’t know where I’d be able to buy their teas in a physical store(GEPA chocolate is sold in organic supermarkets, but not GEPA tea).

Had originally meant to brew the Assam Tonga this morning, but realized I must have run out. Well, this worked too, it wasn’t too weak this time – though I used a lot of leaf, three heaped teaspoons, and “heaped” is an understatement for the first two – the leaf was hanging over on the sides, and the “heap” was about as high as the spoon was wide.(When I said that I underleafed “this time” in my previous tasting note, I did not mean that I had overleafed this tea before, but that I had recently overleafed on several other teas before the last time I had this.)
Like most breakfast teas, it works with real milk or oat milk(or presumably soymilk, too).

Huh, think I *under*leafed this time – that could have been stronger.
Yet another tea I’ve had for years, but had to add before I could log it. I’ve had it so long I almost forgot what was the original reason why I made that order from GEPA – Eukalyptus honey, which improves the taste of many herbal teas, and for which they seemed to be the only source back then.

Thanks for the aside! I am not very intrigued by eucalyptus honey…

You’re welcome :)
There are many other sources for it now, and I’m pretty sure I’ve seen at least one company offer it in a 250g glass(might not have been fairtrade, but was still organic. I think there is a shop that sells a non-organic version in glasses as small as 25g), so depending on how much other use(s) you have for (other) honey, GEPA might not be the best source now(They have it either in a 375g glass, or as one of three 125g sample glasses sold together, the other two being Orange blossom honey and Acahual honey. I’ve found that Orange blossom honey(which is much easier to find than Eukalyptus honey) works well in Ceylon tea, hot or cold, or in Earl Grey. The Acahual is supposed to have vanilla notes, which I’ve never found, but it does work fine for whatever you’d do with an ordinary meadow/flower honey. So if you would only use honey in herbal teas and don’t drink a ton of them, the 250g glass(or 25 or 100g if you don’t care about organic) might be better.)
(Assuming you meant now, if you meant not, please just ignore my comment)
