I got some samples from my lovely A.C when I met her for a weekend in Venice to discover this year Venice Biennale which was very exciting. So arriving to Aarhus, Denmark deathly early yesterday morning and got some beauty sleep after a 18 h trip back, I’m back on my internship. So what can be better than to try a new tea from the large box from A.C before dealing with some paperwork and meetings?
Today I chose Three Friends from Butiki. The dry tea has a strong flavor of chocolate and orange which I associate with the Christmas Eves from my childhood. When I was sitting in grandmas knee while she were eating orange chocolate which in Sweden is called Roman Bows. I still remember the smell from those nights so well. The chocolate with orange flavor and my grandma’s sweet perfumed from Dior. Just an anecdote… Anyway, I steeped it for three minutes as A.C said with boiled water. As usual I closed my eye to recognize the scent of the boiled tea and it smelled almost the same boiled as dry. But the Orange was much stronger this time. More intense. On my first sip the Orange was rolling on my tongue. I couldn’t taste the chocolate so much, but after I swallowed the chocolate came as an aftertaste as a soft emulsion in my mouth. I liked it a lot. It’s a perfect “after-autumn” or beginning of winter tea. Next time I try this one I will have a Christmas muffin beside me on the table. I’m looking forward to it.

Tea is a very special drink for me. It’s a drink that brings interesting conversations with beloved friends and special moments that you just can’t forget. Tea is also special because it’s the drink which me and my friend are sharing and give each other as a gift when we’re not together. Just for experience new tastes from allover the world, to experiment with different dishes and to make new memories and special times to remember to share and tell each other in letters, email or when together again.

On Steepster I will discuss the taste, the scent the mix between tea and food and sometimes some anecdote how I found it. I really loved to get recommendation to experience more in the tea-world.
