Today was one of those days where I looked forward to getting home and having a nice cup of tea. As soon as I got home I put on the kettle and got ready to make some tea.
Here is a tablespoon of Yu Shan tea. The tea is an oolong tea and comes from Jade Mountain which is the highest peak in Taiwan. It is one of the best High Mountain teas from Taiwan and can sell for upwards of $100 a pound. Thankfully this was a gift from one of my students, but I would pay this much as the tea is really good.
Here I have added the water into the tea filter. This is an interesting shot as the camera is focused on the rim of the cup. The rest of the cup is blurred, but this is partly because of the steam coming off of the water which has fogged up my lens.
One of the nice things about full leaf tea is that you can brew multiple cups from the same leaves. I sometimes will make five or six cups before the taste starts to wane.
Oolong tea is good for stress, so was a very good thing to have after my day today.
Now for some sleep before another long day in the classroom tomorrow. I think I will be ready for another cup of tea when I get home tomorrow 🙂
