We are in a drought in my neck of the woods, which is a massive problem, as its farmland around here. But today it smells like there may be rain.
To help encourage the atmosphere, I am drinking this, my favorite winter tea. And, if we are lucky, we shall have some rain around here as well.
I had a cup of this today at my local coffee shop (SO happy when coffee houses carry quality teas as well instead of that bagged tea crap). What a pleasant oolong! It had a light roasted flavor and leaves that did well with a second steep for the cup as well. When steeping, make sure you give these leaves ample room to expand. Like all oolongs, they will expand a LOT, and the more space they have to unfurl, the happier your leaves will be and the better your cup will taste.
Yesterday we went to see the 2nd Hobbit movie in a theater that had broken heat, not such a great thing because it was fairly chilly and overcast outside. When I got out I was dying for something warm and selected this at Peet’s. I don’t think I’ve ever had this particular blend before. definitely malty, other people mentioned fruity but I actually thought it was a bit smoky? hmm. I enjoyed it with a touch of sugar and soymilk. It was nice and robust. I would definitely get this one again, I think further experiments are required for me to make a proper assessment… he he.
I’ve never had this tea so I thought I would give it a try this morning after passing Peet’s. I am finally getting my sense of smell back, which is nice. This blend is really festive, I’m getting a lot of clove and citrus but the vanilla is good here too and makes it nice and creamy, especially with the addition of soymilk. Not sure that I need to buy any of this for home but certainly would not turn down a cup if it was offered to me. I’ve never been incredibly keen on orange spice teas but this is better than most I’ve tried.
Had some of this at lunchtime. It was a treat. And they were almost out in my local Peets!
I knocked over my tin yesterday, and lost some of this leaf, and lost some of it into my sink. Not a lot, but enough to hurt me in my tender little soul. Its a good tea! Its only around this time of year! I wanna keep it!
Well, I’ve still got plenty, it will be alright.
