259 Tasting Notes
The water was poured, leaving the outcome of the tea in the hands of the Fates.
The Fates smiled and said “Let’s allow Man to have a cup of tea this morning that is drinkable.”
Man was cautious with his first sip, but then did imbibe with joy, being thankful that the Fates chose to be merciful.
(It was not bitter this morning! Hooray!)
“But I’m just a soul whose intentions are good / Oh Lord, please don’t let me be misunderstood.”
Extremely tart citrus zing when it hits the tongue and roof of the mouth, with a lingering flavor of mellow licorice. The lemongrass is quite strong as well. I have found it best to wait for the infusion to cool a bit before drinking, and the addition of honey also serves to soften the blow. I suspect this brew would be great for soothing a sore throat (especially with the addition of honey), or otherwise warming away a cold in the wintertime. But no mistake – it is formidable!
