It’s Tony’s 61st birthday!! I’m taking him out for dinner at our favorite Japanese restaurant at 7:30. Meanwhile, I’m finally getting around to sampling this Sheng. The dry leaf has a spicy smell to me, with a hint of vanilla!
This tea is very clean & bright tasting, almost lemony in the way it makes my mouth feel! My mouth is watering like crazy, & I have that sparkling sensation. It’s crisp & sweet & fresh & mouthwatering!
I’m on the 3rd or 4th steeping, & it’s so juicy! There’s also a spicy edge & not only that, I’ve been kind of drowsy all day, with low energy, no matter how many cups of tea I drank. Now I suddenly feel exceptionally alert! I feel very focused!
Which is good, because I have an orchestral part to learn tonight! For the next 2 evenings I’ll play a cantata with a church choir & small orchestra. These gigs are fun, but they always send the music at the last minute. So for the next hour I’ll be sipping this tea & practicing!
