I had my grandmother over for lunch, and I put a few bits of this in the mini-pot. I’ve learned! Because 1tsp of this is wayy to much, even for my medium tea pot.

Rinsed the leaves first. One pot is literally only enough for two tea cups, so it go refilled multiple times, but had the same nice smooth consistency throughout. It works well this way. The leaves still expand to be nice and big, but because there aren’t too many, they aren’t squished inside and give off too much to the brew.

Color of the liquor is based on how long you brew it, but tends on the green-tan side. Not green like sencha and not too tan like a darker oolong.

I get easily excited and tend to get into the habit of collecting things I get really really excited about- books, fountain pens, fragrance, tea and any number of things. Mostly I’m just really excitable.

My favorites are oolongs! Also high for me are greens and ripe pu’erh. But I do like most teas and I’ll try most anything at least once. I just don’t like rooibos, smokey, or banana flavored things.

My name is Christina, but there’s also another Christina with a cat as a profile picture, so I go by Flyawaybirdie.

Feel free to drop me a message anytime. I love messages/letters/etc.

NOTE!: My cupboard is not up to date. Not even close. But it does have a bunch of teas I have pretty substantial quantities of, so I put them in there anyways because I’m unlikely to run out soon. Also, if I wrote a note on it and didn’t include a TTB name or a sipdown note, I’m likely to still have some even if it’s not in my cupboard, so feel free to ask if you want to swap!
