Lena’s logging of this one earlier today reminded me I hadn’t had it in a while. So I’m having some.
I’m getting a bit Darjeeling flavor from it – that muscatel-fruity, nutty taste – but a little smoother and lighter than the Darjeelings I’ve had in more recent memory. I’m pretty sure I got a Darjeeling read from it before but I’m not sure if it was this strong. Perhaps because I steeped it at a lower temp? (That’s what the zojirushi was set on, so I just went with it instead of waiting for it to reboil even though that really doesn’t take long).
Also, something smells like lavender chocolate (and it isn’t me) and it’s driving me nuts! I keep thinking it is this tea but it isn’t. Very odd.
