So my buddy at work who I usually share a daily cuppa with told me about Grandpa’s Cheese Barn, and that his wife picked this one up when they visited and didn’t like it. So he brought this one in to share. So of course I asked how she had brewed it since in my own experience white tea can go awry if you don’t pay attention to the time and temp. The dry leaf smells really good. Almost like Engelskuss (Angel’s Kiss) by Cafe-Contor that mercuryhime shared with me which my daughter claimed to be cotton candy tea. It’s really good it has a nice berry-ish flavor. The tea base itself is nice and light. So of course I want to check this place out since it’s maybe an hour drive.
So on our trek down to Nashville (from Toronto), we stopped for lunch in a little place called Ashland, Ohio. Imagine my wife’s touristy glee when the restaurant was next to a big barn with a huge sign out front: “Grandpa’s Cheese Barn”.
So of course we stopped in, expecting a touristy, kitchy place full of country goodies.
We didn’t expect to find a whole display of loose leaf tea. A big bag of white tea for $6? Hey, even if it’s crap, that’s a good price.
It’s not crap. I’m actually rather in love with this one. I over sweetened it, because there is a lot of natural sweetness in the tea. It’s fruity and light and wonderful for this sunny summer day!
