Mmmm! I love it! This is a great everyday tea.
It’s still super hot (over 90 degrees) in the afternoon, but our mornings and nights in Tennessee are starting to cool down. One of my favorite things to do is to sit out on my back deck on a cooler morning and drink my tea while reading a book. I can already see myself clad in a hoodie and yoga capris drinking this tea in the aforementioned scenario. Probably barefoot. Yep, I think that sounds about wonderful.
This tea is everything that has been mentioned before. Very malty and raisin-y. I’m drinking the tea without any additives, but the idea of adding brown sugar is appealing. I wouldn’t add too much because the tea is already naturally mild and slightly sweet. I’m not picking up any bitterness at all. Overall, this is a very pleasant cup and I look forward to a few more steeps.
And yes, I just added Hong Jing Luo to my shopping list.
