Today was an adventure of a day. I’ve had better…and better teas. Not sure which is worse.
I didn’t steep my tea until I got to work, because a coworker was asking about my Kendall and I wanted to show her how it worked. After the demonstration, I took my tea to the break room and that was when my day became clear.
I forgot my wallet, so no lunch. I forgot the plastic ring for my Kendall, so it was leaking. And then the tea. I think I just didn’t prep it correctly, because I’ve never had a Gyokuro before. I took two sips and had to throw it out. It had a nice sultry umami flavor in the beginning and an astringent follow up that tasted like alcohol smells.
The good news? Tomorrow’s another day and another steep! 😉
