I emptied the sample tin Wombatgirl sent me some months ago, but thanks to her so sweetly thinking of me recently, it’s NOT a decupboarding!
I have a whole great big pouch with some 50g of Aijiao in it, and I’m going to ration it heavily. Red Blossom Tea Company is not a vendor that’s available to me, so I can’t resupply, and even if it was available to me, I seem to recall the price of it being rather steep. Which makes my Wombatgirl all that much sweeter, because she’s probably thinking of it as being in exchange for the lemon oolong I sent her a batch of earlier. Which is a much cheaper tea than the Aijiao. (If you want more, let me know)
It’s probably a mistake that I’m making this tea on a tuesday evening. I should have waited until tomorrow, since wednesday is not a work day for me and I could have had the leaves going all day. But I wanted it now!
I’ve run out of creative ways to praise the wonderful qualities of this tea. I’ve written fairytales complete with once upon a time and happily ever after, and I’ve written an ode to it that rhymed and everything. The only thing I can think of that’s left, really, is something to do with drawing, and… my capabilities just don’t reach that far.
You’ll just have to do with me repeating for the sixth time (as this is my sixth post about Aijiao) that if you like a dark, roasted oolong and this Heritage Aijiao is in any way, shape or form available to you, try it. Please. Try it. You won’t regret it. I promise you, you won’t regret it. And if you find, after having invested in it, you do actually regret having done so, you can give me the rest of the leaves and be pleased about having been so very nice to me. :D
