Oh no! This tea became an unintended sipdown! Aww, I love this one. :( Can I even still count it as part of the original sipdown extravaganza if it’s been months since I last logged one? Well, I’m nothing if not a completionist. So #14 it is!
I used cooler water than usual to try to release less caffeine into the cup. This is mostly cantaloupe. The white tea is pretty calm, which could be attributed to age as much as to water temperature. I’m pretty sure these leaves are almost 2 years old. But it still tastes pretty freaking spectacular for being that old! Yet another reason to love this tea. It’s just delicious perfection. How did this win third place? It should have won first. And now to ruin my taste buds with garlicky cheese ravioli for lunch. :)
