12 Tasting Notes
Used my last bag. In mourning.
probably some of my favourite tea.
this is fast becoming my default morning tea.
I found this in a Holland & Barrett’s penny sale, of all places. serendipity. I was unimpressed at first, finding the taste a bit weak, but tonight I left the teabag in for a few more minutes. it took on this incredible floral taste, all while never obstructing the taste of the tea itself. slurping it while pleasantly wasting an evening in a sort of sweet festering lazy useless elegance. tea makes the most depressing of situations somehow calmative, somehow all right.
I’m in hospital, and a fellow patient gave me a bag of this today. a little boring, uninspiring – quite a flat taste of vague citrus and advent-calendar ginger – but not unenjoyable.
