Yeah, I just got pooped on by a cat. I need some medicinal tea. Actually, the past couple of weeks have been kind of not great (though not to the just-got-pooped-on level, mind you) so even though I’ve been kind of quiet, I have been doctoring my pour, abused psyche with tea regularly. But yeah, the pooping? This sort of raises it to a whole new level. So I thought I’d try a whole new tea.
Well, ‘new’ tea… it’s actually really old. I can’t believe I’ve ignored my few remaining Tea from Taiwan samples for so long. I tell myself that they are vacuum-sealed so it’s really not a bad thing if I take months to drink them. I may or may not be lying to myself with that statement, but this tea doesn’t seem to have minded being tucked into my pantry for so long. It’s rich, floral and pretty darn intense. Sweet but not light and delicate. There is a nice floral tone to it, but the richness and intense flavor it has makes the sweetness more like a hard candy sweet, not nectar sweet. Or maybe nectar hard candy? It leaves a great aftertaste on my tongue, too. And, months old or not, it still tastes fresh – green and a little buttery.
I could totally see myself buying something larger than sample size of this one. It’s delightful. Almost worth the kitty poop that preceded it.
