Hefty and rich! Chewy smoke. Is that a little peat? Is that a little muscatel? (and this is with milk and sugar!)
I made a pot for my husband and I – he exclaimed “It’s delicious!” and drank it faster than you could possibly imagine! When he was ready to go back to his studio, he mentioned how great it was again.
This one screams “resteep!!!” to me – and that is just what I’m going to do!
OK! I’m back! I’m having a resteep with just a little sugar. Some of the stouter flavors are not present. This is more of a smooth, sweet cup. The first steep kicks *ss and takes names! The second steep is kinder and gentler and perfect sans additions. I am so full of tea, but I think it could do another steep just fine!
I’d like to try to steep this like Yunnan Golden Buds (175, 2 min steep) just to see what happens! I want to keep the tin at home because my husband is so crazy for it, but I’ll scoop some into a lil tin to take into work with me so I can play around with it. I love the flavors that short steeps and low temps create with Yunnan tea, and I think this one has a good deal of Yunnan in it.
Andrews and Dunham hit another one out of the park!!
Also – I admit I am not up on my Star Wars, and thought those things were camels and it had something to do with the three wise men,…or something!!! I understand that they are Imperial Walkers now! I love the little tea cup personally – please tell me it really is a tea cup and not a Star Wars thingamabob that I’m not familiar with!?!?!?
