Mood and tea
I usually pick a tea that is suitable to my mood and the weather to drink. I do believe tea taste differently according to moods, how so scientifically, I don't know. For the last few days, my taste buds are so numb, I can't taste anything right, not even my favorite tea. So I end up just drinking not so favorite tea in various combinations to revive my taste buds. It's not working either. Strong pu-erh turns me off right now, anything heavy and smoky, yuck! Ooglong is too pretentious; wild pu-erh has a nice easy fragrance but soup is uh too alkaline; green tea is too grassy. My taste buds truly reflects my edginess. It must have something to do with my body changes associate with the healing process, also the hormone changes associate with the stress.
