1958 Tasting Notes
A treat—-was able to pick up an experimental ounce bulk at my getting-better-all-the-time favorite little health food store. Looks just like PG tips—ground fine, but used in the same proportions, seems to be just a tetch lighter and brighter in flavor (not in appearance). Would have to do a side-by-side comparison to be sure, and tea geeky as I am, I’d love to do that, but time is going to be a tight commodity this week. (Sigh. Not a great thought for an early Monday morning.)
This one’s in the queue at www.itsallabouttheleaf.com, but it’s good—really good! The word ambrosia was used in the review. And rightfully so. :)
Hard to get started this morning; so I treated myself to a morning cup of something really good. This is a yummy liquid illustration of “God, who richly provides us with everything to enjoy.” Surely Paul had a cup of this in front of him when he was writing 1 Timothy!
(Actually, probably not … try as I might to verify it, I don’t think tea hit that part of the Mediterranean until much, much later.)
Wrote a longer review for www.itsallabouttheleaf.com, so I’ll keep this note succinct: bready, sweet, toasty, and superb.
Since this will be reviewed later in detail for www.itsallabouttheleaf.com, I’ll try not to steal my own thunder, but this is really, really, really good!
When it comes to white teas, I’ve always felt like the little old lady (I’m dating myself … oh, well… too late…) in the Wendy’s commercial: “Where’s the TEA?” Either my tastebuds have been burned out by too much double-strength assam or my poor stressed brain just doesn’t have the sensory flavors to pick up tea that just hints at having a taste.
But this one is excellent … you don’t have to make a pretense of picking up flavor, it’s there. And it’s there in a yummy vanilla-white-chocolate sort of way. Maybe I need to save my next cup until I have a hollow white chocolate Easter bunny to gnaw on.
