Today's tea is Tung Ting oolong at the London Tea Room.
Today's tea is 2014 Yunnan Sourcing Cha Tou Sheng Yun Ripe Pu-erh, part of a sampler of 2014 pu-erhs I got from Yunnan Sourcing. This is the first one I've tried from the sampler, it's very nice.

Y'all, do you know you can make bread in your Instant Pot?
I just halved this recipe https://alexandracooks.com/2012/11/07/my-mothers-peasant-bread-the-best-easiest-bread-you-will-ever-make/ and followed the instructable above, and now I have a big steamed bun thing. No crust, but still. It's homemade bread that didn't heat the kitchen up on a sweltering day.
Today's tea: Black Gold Bilochun from Tearunners.
Spoiler: she never does.
