Daylight savings is pretty much the only day of the year I don’t sleep in on Sunday. Everyone else in the house seems to be feeling the lazy pace of the day, too—meatballs are already cooking for tonight’s spaghetti dinner, and I’ve had lots and lots of time to procrastinate on doing my homework. Combine that with the fact it’s wet and chilly outside and it’s the perfect day for tea!
The leaves of this green smelled great, a little bit like licorice. As soon as I poured the water in, that scent bloomed into a pleasant squash-carrot brothy punch with just a teeny floral hint—it actually reminded me of an oolong I had recently. I’m not sure if that means my oolong was more like a green, or this green was more like an oolong. Who knows? Not I!
I’m always surprised by how pretty and varied the colors of tea can be. This was a light yellow-green and steamy, very appetizing. It was a velvety, very slightly sweet, and smooth drinking cup. Thanks to Claire for the sample!
