Tonight was magical. A warm sunny spring day with no wind. A mid-western cyclist dream. A “hilly” ride, with the smell of freshly cut grass and lots of flowering trees. Wind and sunshine on my face! Yep, I was already in heaven and then I had some of this tea. Now, I am sitting here with everyone in bed enjoying a quite house and a warm cup of tea. Can I hit repeat on this day?
This tea is smooth and hearty. I get sweet potato with a bit of what I like to say is a “meaty” finish. There is no astringency. The last part of the sip also has a hint of sweet. This is delicious. I received this tea from ashleyelizabeth in a swap. I was intrigued to try this because I started my loose leaf tea habit with the Teavana’s version of Golden Monkey. I will have to try them side by side. I am curious to see how my perception of that tea has changed. Thank you ashleyelizabeth for passing this along!
