It is 75 degrees and sunny. We had a dozen harrowing errands to run so I told the girls we would have a picnic tea when we got home! We chose Emperor’s Red to go with our plate of Danish Wedding cookies.
I have always found it to have chocolate aromas but today when I lifted the cup to my lips I thought, “Wow, there is a fruity note there I hadn’t picked up this strong before. Maybe baked apple?” Then I saw Jacqueline’s post today where she referred to it as fruity as well! It was delicious as always, and like Jacqueline, this was the last of my leaves! We had Sandy on speakerphone to "join " us for tea since she got back to the states yesterday. She said that she had already had to endure the sorrow of seeing the last leaves…we are thinking about starting a support group.
