Merry Christmas, Steepsterites…
I needed some soothing, simple and dependable tea this morning and R29 Ceylon was just the thing.
For some reason this is decidedly delicious today. I’m getting very yummy “bake-y” notes. Super smooth yet “chewy” bread-y aroma and flavor. Warm, freshly baked bread is one of my most favorite things and, today at this particular steeping, this tea is manifesting this in abundance.
I’m keeping the leaves steeping in my travel mug and the flavor throughout is outstanding.
I’m getting malty, chewy, stone ground wheat bread with a kick of raisin and rye but no “sourness”. Very comforting. At cooldown, there is slight bitterness—but nothing unpalatable.
I’m liking this tea more and more—bumping up to 85. :)
