This tea is almost legendary. I had a sample of it once from Wombatgirl and I yummed it up as you can see from the rating. And after that it was just… gone. No more Tangerine Blossom for little Ang. Sadface.
Oh well, life goes on.
But then all that lovely Shang Tea customer service business happened and I could make my very own Shang Tea order. Yaaaaaaay! It was of course clear as day that this should be part of the order.
And now I’ve been partly craving it since and partly holding back. At first I was holding back because I didn’t have a tin to put it in, so I couldn’t open the pouch. (It’s a rule. No tin, no opening.) Then I could tin it, but still held back because what if it wasn’t as awesome as I remembered. What if the memory of that lovely tangerine flavoured brew would be tarnished and ruined? Oh woe, almost too much to bear!
And then now, where I decided that I was feeling rather malnourished and deficit in the Vitamin T (get it?) department, and I finally decided I was feeling brave enough to do it.
And you know what? It’s still awesome. Sweetly floral and citrus-y juicy. Just absolutely wonderful.
