I figured I would treat myself to another cup of tea after plowing through my mountain of homework (I could have done more, but I’m not gonna).
So, I am sitting here with a freshly made cup of Decadence while listening to Disturbed’s Ten Thousand Fists album… track three, Decadence. That’ll do.
This brew smells more musty than I remember – like the inside of a barn after it rains… err something like that. I can still smell that familiar mild “spring” aroma. The color is also darker than my previous memory. It is almost the color of a blacker oolong.
The taste is a little bitey, dry, and nothing like I remember. Where is the smooth, gentle grassy taste? Hmm… maybe this sample is too old, or I steeped it too long.
“Decadence isn’t easy, is it?”
