@helldude decades of ignoring critical infrastructure updates. the speed it burned down was amazing, but not surprising when you consider it's a centuries old wooden structure without any needed upgrades. it's such a sad waste of millenia of human history.
Also I'd been avoiding cold-brewing post-fermented teas on the assumption that they would end up way too high in the geosmin department, but I have recently tried cold-brewing a Hunnan fu tea packed into a brick. A sort of sweeter tea, less earthy than what you usually think of cooked puerh being.
It's /very/ good. VERY refreshing. And it resteeps well over and over and over and over.

Petrichor, that fresh aroma you can smell after the rain, is caused by a little molecule called geosmin. The name literally means "earth smell." It's produced by soil bacteria and gives an earthy flavour to beets.
Humans are extremely sensitive to this scent – much, much more sensitive than sharks are to blood. Some think we evolved that way to find fresh drinking water after droughts.
