Had some puerh and talked with a friend back in the US about us both being depressed and sick of life. It felt good to be able to openly discuss.

Might look into the possibility of going back to the US to get vaxxed. General availability may not even happen this year. Even the most optimistic timeline has it only just beginning in mid July, right before the olympics start, but they've only secured enough doses for half the population and medical staff are in short supply.

I suggested this to my cousin that lives in Norway because the European vaccine situation is kind of a mess too.

Anyway Iím having a nice cup of East Frisian BOP for the first time in a while and itís very nice.

(Personally, start heavy and go lighter and more sour to cleanse the pallet; like opposite to wine tasting where I go darker and drunker)

Paper Bag is a good song by Fiona Apple.

Also good morning, it's time to be awake and not be able to reach the tea that was gently placed on the bedside table because I'm stuck in between the pillows again.

I need to get it before it's cold, it's genmaicha and I want it real bad.

No one said you have to use water to make tea. Try hot milk, or hot apple cider, or hot maple syrup, or hot gin.

Evian or other bottled water for emergency tea or just a filter might help, otherwise, good luck friend...

Also could a mod change the thread name to "Tea Time! Sleepytime is a hell of a drug" ? That'd be great!

Bad idea: You could vape sleepytime tea but don't because it will absolutely hurt

Good idea: Just put the hot water in the cup, boil the freaking leaves already

On that note it's that good good milk oolong, hot with a little drop of last year's wildflower honey. Having with a Coffee Crisp mini and a little goi cuon and it's real nice I gotta say

Does sleepy time tea have verbena in it? Because that is a pretty chill cup of tea for me

Ceramic is going to give you the best heat distribution and probably the most "pure" flavor as opposed to metal which will give better heat retention and can affect the minerality of the water a bit, esp cast iron

Ceramic or glass will heat up the quickest and will cool off the quickest, metal pots will take longer to heat up but will stay warmer longer

At the end of the day it's really more about aesthetics than anything else. Cast iron especially is heavy as hell and might be uncomfortable to pour. I personally prefer ceramic for most things. I don't have a lot of experience with clay pots but I'd like one
