Woohoo, I have enough time for another cup of tea today! I feared I would be limited to one as it is the teaching day from hell today.
This is perhaps one of the saddest of my teas. I bought a big pile of it when it was going away forever, and I already know the flavor is fading fast. That’s what you get for using high-end seasonal teas and no added flavoring oils. I put extra leaf in my infuser today (and it’s busting out!) to see what would happen.
Well it smells good! Perhaps more buttery and less floral. I think jasmine-scented things fade perhaps the fastest of all. Drink your jasmines fast! Anyway, this is still surprisingly sweet and delicious, even though it’s perhaps missing some of the subtler flavors that it had when first blended. It’s orangier at these steep parameters, but still gives off a tieguanyin candy vibe with the sweetness. Still love it, even if it is old!
