Beautiful Mr. and Mrs. Mallard are chilling on my lawn this morning. They’ve been here for a couple of days now. They sit under the pine tree or go for a swim in the pond.
Mr. Mallard’s iridescent and lustrous green plumage is just stunning to look at, it never gets old. Of course, just like most bird species, Mrs Mallard’s feathering is a lot more subdued. (Totally unfair!!)
I got out of bed super early and already knew I was going to drink Special Dark. (I read Cavocorax’s note last night and got inspired!)
Chocolate in the morning? Yes please! This is rich decadent liquid gooey chocolate, with burnt caramel sprinkles on top, yum. It’s also creamy with vanilla notes, that makes it round and silky in the mouth.
This has none of the heavy earthiness often found in shou. It’s a very “friendly” pu’erh, smooth and accessible to everyone, but complex enough to please the more experienced tea drinkers.
The more you steep it, the more condensed the flavour gets. Just superb.
Happy Sunday everybody :-)
