Recent Tasting Notes

Ahhhhhhhh. Weather mild enough to work outside in shirtsleeves, finally able to continue picking up branch fallout from the ice storm a week before Christmas. This is my break and I am drinking it with immense pleasure in the patio glider. Just a good quality longjing with long, flat leaves and a little sweetness.

For second steep, I threw in a pinch of mystery white chai from a work buddy; there’s just a tiny hint of cinnamon in it now. Equally pleasant.

Jealousy! We are supposed to get a bit of a warm up this week – maybe into the 50’s by Thursday. Our branch fallout is still mostly snow covered. The patio glider and tea sounds so nice.

This was a little surprise in a small box of treats sent from a friend. I’ll have to ask her about its origin; whether it was a local purchase or a pass-along (she and I regift with no qualms whatsoever). No English on the box except company name and the awkwardly humorous description I transcribed for you.

I wasn’t expecting a lot. Surprise! This is mouth-wateringly pleasing. Big, flat, ragged leaves with the scent and taste of nutmeg and citrus. I’m going to enjoy this immensely.
