I am so close to being out of this sample it’s not even funny. I have maybe half a cup left. This makes me very sad. This morning I added a bit of sugar and half & half and put this into my tumbler for my drive to work.
So good. Bold and tea-y with a great note of strawberry sauce, like the kind that is put on cheesecake. The taste of the tea was stouter than previous times I’ve had this, probably because I inadvertently oversteeped a bit – but it dealt with it well and actually fit the whole morning tea purpose. I also made up a second steep of this before I left and put it in the fridge. I’m looking forward to seeing how this is cold.
This tea is seriously going to make me find a Mariage Freres vendor since the only one I know of is about an hour or so from my house. But I might have to make a visit there.
