We had our first snow of the season this morning! It was just a light dusting that quickly melted & the rain has taken over a little bit now, but still.. SNOW! I suppose I’m ready for the cold weather — more time to stay inside and drink tea.
The scent of this tea is sweet and mild. There is a slight earthy tone, but it doesn’t overwhelm the cup. There is also something savory in the background, but I can’t seem to put my finger on what it reminds me of.

Sipping… the first thing I notice are the woody, mineral notes. I definitely taste a bit of apricot — more like a dried apricot than apricot jam. There is a hint of sweet astringency at the tail end, but it’s rather nice. I almost wish that there could be more sweetness because I think it would take the cup to another level.

This is a nice tea, but a little too mild for my tastebuds.
