Backlogging from this morning.
One day you are walking through the woods. It’s a sunny day, new growth deciduous trees, past season’s leaves covering the ground in layers of leaf mold. A faint whiff of something floral wafts past you on the light breeze. Following the scent you come out into a clearing to discover an abandoned house, crumbling into ruin, with a giant lilac tree abutting the remains of a stone chimney, roots pushing through the age-softened mortar of the stone foundation.
Yeah…it’s kinda like that.
1st infusion: 2 minutes, boiling water
2nd infusion: 3 1/2 minutes, boiling water
The lilac note is barely noticeable this time.
