WELCOME TO A DELICIOUS MOUTHFUL OF BACON TEA!
For real, it’s been a while since I’ve had some lapsang souchong, but I can’t remember other brands I’ve tried being quite this preposterously smoky.
This is divine, from start to finish. A real single malt whisky of teas.
A big beautiful mug full of this delicious brew got me through a rough morning after, if you know what I mean.
I’m not sure exactly the combination of events that left me feeling like this today but I’m going to point most of the blame at 1. staying up playing DnD until 3:30am and then 2. overindulging at the market this morning (I didn’t expect there to be both bagels and doughnuts left by the time I got there, a blessing and a curse).
In any case, I didn’t want another cleansing green like the other day, but I wanted something… similar. Same same but different. What a picky cow.
Reaching for a lovely and delicate plain black, however, was the right idea.
After a couple of days of lattes it felt time for a nice clean green, so this afternoon I reached for my samples from Grounded and the Dragonwell called my name.
This steeped tea is such a vibrant yellow, wow! I was surprised to see such a crazy colour.
I’m definitely not a green connoisseur and I’m generally not even drawn to them but this was just what I was craving this afternoon, so that’s interesting. It tasted spot on from what I’ve come to expect from a good green leaf. Great job, Grounded!
Grounded let me know that they’d recently emboldened their Bold Breakfast, so I had to give it another try…
And it’s definitely a much Bolder breakfast these days! Yum. This is full of guts, even with a heaped tsp of leaves in a mug around 12oz big. Both black and with a splash of milk, I’m a fan, and a couple of cups of this really helped with the wake-up process this morning.
Great job, Grounded!
Today, my first tea from my first Mr. Earl box! Well technically yesterday—I loaded up the timolino with some of this too before hitting the road for the day, but today I’ve got to sit down and get a proper taste for it.
The 85°C steeping note got my curiosity up, because this tea is literally just black leaves + other black leaves + some more black leaves. I did as I was told both yesterday and today but I think with the last scoop I’ve got I’m going to try at just off boiling. I’ll admit that I steeped for longer than advised both times, 3-4mins advertised and I went for around 4-6.
I’m getting lovely black with a touch of maltiness, but not the real grunt of boldness I was expecting from such a name.
