I’ve prepared this the last two mornings – short on sleep and not ready to face the day. This tea has a strong dark color, and a smooth, malty, smoky taste that makes it easier to face the day. I usually want my morning cup to be brighter and more cheery, but this is a good tea to relax with.
And I still think watching the tea balls unfold is great entertainment. Or, at least, as much entertainment as I am up for this morning.
