Spring is definitely on it’s way! I think I can actually crack open the windows without getting dirty looks from my pups today. :) Okay, they might still give me dirty looks, but they live here for free so they’ll just have to huddle up and deal with it for a little while. They both think my lap is their personal heated bed anyways.
So this tea! Very nice! At first, I thought possibly a bit chocolatey, but it was likely the piece of chocolate I had before taking a sip. Now I"m more inclined to think a light malt on the swallow. A bit of prune. Smooth and sweet. Warm and lovely. Pleasantly drying.
I was a bit surprised by the little bits of dried leaf. I nearly spilled it all getting it out. I suppose, though, that it explains the briskness of this tea.
I don’t know what it is, but something about the smell of this makes me think of having tea in an English garden. I’m not even sure what an English garden looks like. I’m just envisioning myself in a nice summer dress, floppy hat and parasol while sipping tea with greenery all around me. Maybe it’s spring fever, actually.
I am, as always, amazed that one plant can have so many intriguing flavors. Can you get this level of complexity if you cultivated mint extensively?
