Anyhow, lately I'm in a pure tea mood - as in unflavored. I've got nothing against flavored tea, but for some reason I've been really enjoying pure teas. The last few days have had massive tea concentrations.
Thursday Paw and I made a visit to Camelia Sinensis. We decided to have the in-season teas that would likely soon be discontinued. She had a green tea and I had an oolong. I am terrible with remembering the names of teas at Camelia :( Both were very good. As we stayed till closing, we got some left over peppercorn and lemon scones.
Friday, Captain Wildchild and I went to Cha Guan and had some old faves. I got jasmine dragon pearl green tea and he got ginseng oolong.
Today, I had genmaicha - a tea I haven't had in over a year. Definitely missed the brown ricey taste of this tea!
I also had a battle with Kuding - bitter tea. In this match it was Kuding - 1, Njosnavelin - 0. It defeated me in bitterness. But Paw tells me I put too many leaves. So I will try again. I made my mom try it, too. She nearly died, lips curled - "It tastes worse than quinone!".
I'll let you know how round two goes.
Until the next tea tasting ;) For now, I'll continue on my pure tea trip.
