I just received a package from Bonnie and OH MY! There is so much tea, so many gifts! Thank you!
My youngest daughter has dreamily inhaled the Lapsang and put it in her stash. She refuses to try it until school tomorrow! I was going to be good and not have caffeine tonight, but this one was calling my name and I didn’t try to resist very hard.
Lapsang with jasmine and orange? You don’t mean it! But opening the pouch an exotic scent wafts out and I bury my face in the bag to sniff. I may be showing myself to be a country bumpkin, but this smells exotic through and through. The combination of flavors and smoke here is so unique as to make it all seem like a totally new thing, and at the same time, as old as antiquity itself! I can picture sipping this on some foreign shore and I swear Bogart is there.
The taste does not let me down, either. This tastes the way it smells. Lapsang, good and strong. Smoke and ash on the tongue. Jasmine, teasing in the background. Orange, a flirty top note. What a cool tea!
I can’t wait to try more from Happy Lucky, and I hear they are going to be selling online soon!
Thank you, Bonnie! This will be an adventure!
I almost forgot to add today’s dramatic doodle. It is the weeping angel, only the angel is youngest, she is sobbing on the geometry book, and her pencil dangles limply from her hand. This kid really has GOT to do theater. http://www.flickr.com/photos/24998856@N06/7873206326/
