Recent Tasting Notes
I had an incredibly hectic week. I haven’t been able to write about it because part of it was planning a surprise birthday party for my boyfriend and I was paranoid that he might stumble upon my note and find out about it. Thankfully, it all worked out amazingly well. Yesterday I had an Avengers themed party for my now 29 year old boyfriend! We played musical chairs and even had a piñata. We had an amazing time, ate tasty paella, and enjoyed the company of our closest friends.
Also on a positive note, another small (super tiny) tea shop opened in Ecuador! I stopped by and picked this tea. I am really happy with my choice! I love rose tea, and this one is particularly delicious. I have only had it for a few days and I have almost finished my 100g of it.
The dry leaves are beautiful. The contrast of the black and pink is amazing. the petals are so dainty looking in the dark background. The scent is heavily floral and delicious. If you like rose you will love this. A super strong scent that somehow doesn’t mask the black tea.
Once brewed the liquor is a light brown leaning towards pink. The scent becomes even more inviting and the flavor is just as amazing. I think that this could possibly be my favorite rose tea I have had so far. Up front you taste the black tea that slowly transitions to rose as you swallow. The resulting delicate rose aftertaste is spectacular.
Also, the Ecuador vs. Colombia soccer game just ended… Ecuador won! Yay!!!
What an amazing weekend! I wish every weekend could be like this… Boyfriends birthday, delicious tea, and Ecuador winning and getting one step closer to the world cup. :)
