drank Lemon Cardamom Chun Mee by 52teas

Mmmmm. This is another one that got away from me. I had actually forgotten about it so I’m happy to see it in my Christmas box.

It’s like sun and could mist tea’s older more sophisticated sister. While the fluffy kitty tea is lemony sweet and adorable like the picture on the pouch this is a more refined and savory tea. Perfect balance of lemon and cardamom. I was actually not familiar with Chun Mee but I might have to check some unflavored out because it serves as an excellent base here.

Held up to two good steepings, first at two minutes and the second at three. I think it might be good to use the leaves from the second steeping for cold brewing and might try than next time. It worked well for fluffy kitty tea.

I’m a long time tea addict since my british grandma started me on english breakfast tea as a toddler.

Since then I’ve branched out substantially. Right now I drink mainly blacks, whites, greens, and reds. I want to to try purr-eh and more oolongs.
