Received some grams from derk. I am not sure I got more than 3 grams I had… so not sure if it’s SIPDOWN or not. Either way, let’s find out how this tea is.

Meanwhile… I had today that awful oral exam of Economics of transport companies. Today, with a little help of accidentally opened papers, I have passed. I admit, I looked there and well there was an answer. But she asked, on purpose I assume, on different topics but related to those.

Anyway, back to the tea. I did two steeps. One, 3 minutes long in early afternoon, and now while I am writing those lines, I have second, 5 minutes long next to me. Both prepared western.

I remember way too vaguely the first one. I liked it, being mild and lightly woody, but that’s pretty much all. I wasn’t paying attention to it too much. I know, this tea doesn’t deserve it.

The second steep I have now, is smelling after rye. Rye bread. I kid you not, it is really reminding me a rye bread I had back in Finland! The taste is quite similar. The taste… a bit woody indeed; with some fruitiness I think? I don’t get typical DianHong cocoa notes, but nevertheless it’s great. The mouthfeel is great. Smooth, but with some texture beneath.

Aftertaste… well again a bit of that rye along with malt. To be honest, this steep is way better than first. The first was like… okay, smooth and woody, but now, I see why it’s that popular. Too bad it’s gone. But certainly, I enjoy it!

LOL! I am going to ask the cats to shovel snow.

This is one of my all time favorite straight black teas.

White Antlers: How dare you ask nobility to shovel snow! They surely will be plotting against you. Sleep with one eye open tonight.

derk If I tell Their Highnesses the FedEx guy with the Chewy.com package full of pate’ and Greenies can’t get to the door due to an unshoveled path, I bet they at least consider getting out of their heated beds to possibly aid in helping me find my gloves to get the chore underway. LOL!

derk and White Antlers: Thank you ladies for a good laugh when I woke up! I am asking my cat if she will go shopping and she only meows back. So, I guess, again, it’s on me.

Maddy: I completely see why! It’s very tasty and kind of unique tea. Those 3 grams were great :)

hahaha. Now I’m just seeing cats with tiny shovels walking on their hind legs. :D

White Antlers

tea-sipper Someone or some cats shoveled and salted my walk before lunch today. I don’t have friendly, thoughtful neighbors so maybe my cats really did get the hint…

Mastress Alita – of course it was already somewhere outside of my brain!
White Antlers – that was nice of the cats (or someone)!
