Having a glass of this that I brewed last night for the chill box.
OK… this is going to sound a little strange, perhaps, but, when I smell this tea, I am immediately reminded of the seedy flesh of a fig. A fresh fig. It honestly brings me back to the days when I was young, living on a farm and picking fresh figs and eating them straight off the tree – still warm, right in the farm’s orchard. I don’t know that it tastes like that… exactly… but the scent and initial taste really transported me to those memories.
Of course, this tea is not supposed to remind me of figs… but melon and jasmine and white tea. And I suppose if I break away from those memories and focus on it… I can taste the melon and the white tea … even a faint note of jasmine …
It is very good, refreshing… and cooling (especially after drinking that spicy chai!)
