Starting out the year with in the morning while i cleaned my room. still need to vacuum but I think I'll spend some time properly brewing this year and honing the axe a bit.

The other I am drinking today, I'm not sure i like this one... "butter pecan oolong" from loose leaf tea market is flavored with cinnamon, licorice root, calendula and "organic butter pecan flavor" --- ahh, well, i was hoping for more of a jin xuan subtleness. This would be a fine evening herbal, but it feels disrespectful to whatever generic "oolong" they've paired it with.

it's interesting that i've got to the point in my tea brewing that simply saying "oolong tea" should be more of a red flag than it was this time -- i missed the ingredients on the label and have trusted this little phoenix tea shop too much perhaps.
