I’ve apparently had this before but I don’t remember it and I kinda liked it and I made it 3 times tonight because the first time I gave it to my mother (who really loved it especially the aroma and the finish, and told me as I asked her that she felt a lot like she was doing a wine tasting since I asked her a bunch of questions about this). (She just reminded me to not forget to mention the turkey poop). After I made it, I went to empty the no-name gravity infuser outside since they do not have a functional garbage disposal and it fell to pieces, one of which I did not realize had come off.

So when I made myself some of this, it did not hold the water and made a huge mess. While we were trying to find the piece that I don’t even know what it looks like, outside, in the dark, I definitely touched a piece of turkey poop, which is just as disgusting as it sounds. And we did not find it.

Thankfully I had left behind a large teaball when I visited last time so I was able to make this for myself with the 3rd set of leaves and yes it tastes very good. I over leafed a bit I think which meant it had almost the perfect amount of vanilla flavour for me. The tea itself was pretty light and definitely smooth as anything and the immediate aftertaste was really nice though not so much now so I should go eat or drink something else soon.

Maybe it was the thrill of victory of overcoming all of the obstacles to drink this tea but it was pretty damn good.
