Thank you Dhart1214 for this sample tea
La la la la la….
What does one do when one does not care for a tea? One has to look for something that is good about the tea like a detective!
I’ll become… Miss Marple …The BBC Detective!
Miss Marple is in the kitchen with her pot of tea, flowery rose china cup (totally not me) which she takes on a tray (along with cream and castor sugar) to a table by the garden window.
The first pour is a nose scrunching audible, “Really, oh no! Something has to be done about this!” (The black thick tea was so strong and bitter it could have disintegrated a discarded murder weapon!)
“I’ll add some cream and castor sugar. Surely that will make this tea drinkable.” But alas, the tea was still sour and without a chocolate, coconut flavor at all.
“Drat it all! Whatever is the matter with this tea? Has it been meddled with?” Looking into the cup for a bit, you could see the process of deduction…the sleuth at work.
“I’ll dilute the tea!”
This proved to be the best answer to drinkability but just barely.
Miss Marple’s deduction was as follows:
Either there was something that went terribly wrong with the Puerh base which made the tea have an odd taste. Or,the flavoring went berserk taking on a persona that has nothing to do with coconut or cocoa. (It could also be a sinister plot.)
The case had to go into the file of unsolved mysteries!
I like a good mystery, and I’ll assume that I am the only one that had an off packet of this tea and leave it at that.
