drank Osmanthe D'Or by Dammann Freres
1858 tasting notes

Resteep of last night’s leaves: This oolong was made western style last night and I usually only make one resteep when I steep it that way. The first sips are slightly milky, something I hadn’t picked up on before. The liquor was a brilliant golden color this time. I think it was even brighter this time! The oolong is nice and the osmanthus is a little muted.

Tune: Lonely Boy by the Black Keys, celebrating being finished with geometry for the day even though youngest had an early dental appointment. Yay!

Oh you’re so kind as to also share your tune with us, I’m biased of course. It also doesn’t hurt that the Black Keys have made another appearance here.

Love that tune!

Yes, the prior mention is why we listened to it! I read the review to youngest and she said she had Black Keys on her iPad so she turned it up while we drank tea between subjects.

Bio

I am a music teacher and homeschooling mom who started drinking loose leaf tea about five years ago! My daughters and I have tea every day, and we are frequently joined by my students or friends for “tea time.” Now my hubby joins us, too. His tastes have evolved from Tetley with milk and sugar to mostly unadorned greens and oolongs.

We have learned so much history, geography, and culture in this journey.

My avatar is a mole in a teacup! Long story…
