I am not my best right now. The day really took it out of me. I was considering skipping my much beloved after-school tea and just going home to crash (by crash I mean do more work while watching reruns of Call the Midwife, teachers are never done working). Reading Bonnie’s description of this tea changed my mind! I’m trying the sample I just got. I hope it soothes my achey body and chases away my blues. Is that too much to ask from a tea?
Look at these cute little leaves! So tiny, curly, and almost black. No, looking at them in the light they have a purple cast to them. Interesting!
This tea smells delicious. I detect a slight smell of that Laoshan Black chocolate I love so much but it’s tempered with other scents. It brews up into a lovely golden cup of tea.
I’m having trouble describing this tea. It’s wiping my mind blank in the most peaceful way. I’m so glad I decided to have tea and that I went with this one. I may be blanking on taste and smell descriptions but I can tell you I’m feeling warmer and more relaxed. I don’t know if it’s the ritual of making tea or the tea itself but I am feeling better. I’m so glad Verdant encouraged the He family to try Oolongs! You can taste the love in their tea.
