Good to know I'm not doing anything 'wrong'. But it is not strong enough. Seems like I'll have to leave it there for 10 mins, next time
Or use a little more tea.

Resteeping is commonly done for many teas. There are very few teas I don't resteep.

Bancha in my cup right now.

If it isn't strong enough at 5 minutes, you probably need to use a bit more tea, or give it more room to steep. If you're using one of those little tea balls, they tend to be too small to allow the tea to properly steep.

Today I'm getting ready to go on the road. Doing a three city sweep of western Canada presenting on Windows 8 and Office 365. (Expenses, but no actual pay ) So, up early, a quick swim, and then heads down on the presentation and demo.

Starting the day with Peet's Anniversary Breakfast Blend and fresh squeezed orange juice.

Think of it as a paid interview and see how many people you can impress.

Pot one of Sencha. With a piece of German Chocolate Cake. Soooo good

Yup. That's the plan. Would be good to get some actual Canadian work.

Meanwhile, made a huge pot of Bolognese sauce, which is simmering away in the oven, and settled for a good old PBJ for lunch. But that Bolognese will be ready by dinner.

Diet coke right now. Too much caffeine this morning, need to taper off a bit.

Tea... too early to care which one. Hot and thick; that's all that's important right now.

Phew, what a week ...

I spend the whole of last week in training with a police corps that investigates accidents with seriously injured people. They do reconstructions of the accident to find out who's to blame and if anything could have been done to prevent the accident.

So it was maths and physics all week long. Then add snow storms, roads that look like skating ramps and 1600 km of traffic jam (on highways only, so it would be around 3000km if you count secondary roads as well!) and you can just imagine how fun it was.

Thankfully I did learn a lot, and the team there is so welcoming.

So now I'm back at the office, enjoying a cup of cappuccino. I think it's going to get really busy for me in the upcoming months, at work and at home. We decided to move in with my parents, that will happen in may. We're also still working on the design of our house, and we keep changing our minds about everything :s And my main project of this year finally started, so I expect it will be really busy at work as well.

Wow. It sounds exciting, too. Good luck with the new living arrangements and the house design.

Coke Zero #1 in my cup, as I catch up on some late paperwork.

I suggest sending an office junior on an emergency run to the nearest specialist tea shop.

Just finished coke zero #1.
