902 Tasting Notes
Getting a bit more orange out of this today, though the jasmine is right there in your face. The heat has yet to be turned on in our building, so I’ve got a little space heater right next to me (3 foot safety radius? I don’t know what you’re talking about), and my HotShot loaded with water for the next cup. Hello, cold weather!
Another tea from my recent World Market trip. Couldn’t figure out what to have this morning, so I chose this one. Normally I would have set Chloe up with something last night, but I was very tired and went to bed at an unholy early hour. Expected to be up insanely early as a result, but no: I rolled out of bed a good 2 hours later than my normal time. Thus, I’m running a smidge later than I wanted (and being sore from moving furniture isn’t helping me in the speed category).
Brewed this for 3 minutes, and I think I’ll try it at 5 next time. It seems a bit watered down, but I can detect some spice and a hint of citrus. The tea is there, but still rather weak. Will wait and rate after I’ve tried the 5 min steep.
