259 Tasting Notes
I finished off my sample of this and got quite a few steepings from it. Beautiful jasmine aroma and buttery oolong, which I enjoyed. I also gave a cup to my husband who initially said ‘mmm good’ after taking a sip but then after drinking the cup said he didn’t care for it so much as it reminded him of ‘olive leaves or something’. :)
I put the leftover brewed leaves in a jar with water in the fridge overnight and was treated with a gorgeous glass of iced tea the next day. The color of this brew struck me as so beautiful – it was such a perfectly clear golden yellow and simply lovely to look at. The flavor was perfect as well; crisp and floral without a hint of bitterness.
(Note:) I originally wrote this review on April 25th but hadn’t posted it at the time, and ten days later my husband had to return to hospital after our short time back home. Although we hoped he would be returning home again that never happened. And despite everything, he took his last breath November, 2015.
Over the past months I have read this saved review many times and have recalled this moment, and am now sharing it here. To remember this moment spent with my beautiful husband, so brave, so loving. Always my sweet angel, always my love.
