My tea-drinking was kind of boring this week. I just kept drinking Laoshan Black at work and a little Butiki Violet Rose Callendula. I have\n’t been very adventurous I guess. I got out of work early today, so I decided to treat myself with a trip to Harney & Sons Soho.
This tea was lovely! The first thing that hit me were notes of clove and cinnamon. Then malt and apricot/peach notes. It is a very bright taste and my tastebuds really tasted the difference between this and all the Laoshan black I’ve been drinking. As it cools, it gets maltier, loses some of the spice tones, and actually becomes a little nuttier. I really enjoyed my pot of this tea.!
It also went really well with the cheddar and chive scone I got, which I loved so much I got the vanilla scone too. I did say this was a treat, right?
