Backlog – I had a cup of this yesterday at my graduation! Yay I am finally done! It feels good but also weird..I don’t think reality has fully hit me yet either, so I imagine when it does, I will be freaked out that I’m not going back to school. But yes, it was a decent day, the weather cooperated and was sunny all day. Happy I could have at least one cup of this, I also took a tea bag of the green tea they had, but didn’t get a chance to make it. Oh well, I find mint bagged teas to be a safe bet at public events, and this one was not bad. Fresh and calming on a busy day. I steeped it for probably around 5 minutes or less, and carried it around campus until it was done haha.
Oh! I also had a random loose leaf rooibos at dinner in some authentic ‘blueberry tea’ as a dessert. They brewed it in the same gravity steeper I have, as my parents got mine at that restaurant for Christmas. So that was pretty neat, although I have no idea how long it steeped for and I think they massively overleafed. It still tasted good anyways, and I don’t feel like making a tasting note for an unknown rooibos, so I’ll put it in this note.
ETA – I also should add a thanks to everyone on Steepster and to tea in general. Tea was an integral part to my success this year, it kept me sane and healthier, and less stressed :) and reading all your tasting notes helped me discover more teas this year and as a result, I rarely drink alcohol anymore and just enjoy tea that much more. This really helped my studies as I wasn’t going out and instead would just relax at home when I could with a cup of tea. Thanks everyone for your contribution to me getting my degree, and I appreciate all your notes and support!!
