I'm on the fence about posting every day, or just posting when I switch teas.
while I'm here it won't make much of a difference, but once I get back home it might.
I dunno... that'd be way easier on instagram or tumblr since they have apps that I can upload photos to straight from my phone.
now! on to my tea!
I finished the herbal tea sampler so I started on the next box of tea I have here: green tea with lemon.
this is the bf's preferred green tea (bagged, at least) so I figured if I didn't finish the box here we'd finish it at home.
I like it a lot too, but brewing green tea by hand is such a pain! mess up the water temp and it's near undrinkable. cue my new thermometer, eh?
but I brewed the herbals at about this temp too, so I guess I just like to complain.
my tea kettle has spoiled me. I miss it so much, qq!
the lemon is not exactly subtle, and green tea is so mild... still, I like it.
also, it goes surprisingly well with dried figs.
steep time: 1 min < x < 2 mins
steep temp: ~ 170℉
