A good black tea. Nothing too amazing but good nonetheless. Lots of earthy tones and a nice soothing nose. Who doesn’t like popping a couple of these finely rolled balls into your pot and watching them unfurl into all their steeping glory? Has enough strength to hold up to the morning grogginess without a harsh bite. Cocoa notes are too subtle for my untrained palate to pick up on. Grab a cup, i’m sure you’ll like it.

I “liked” this post…even though I don’t “like” hearing about your palate…

Interesting. You’ve spurred me into trying this one riiiiight…now.

Also, I’m sorry, but hee hee hee, you said “balls.” [I know. I’m five.]

@takgoti, i’ll keep an eye out for your thoughts. At it’s only available as loose leaf, not tea bags, right?

Laura

the idea of watching said balls of glory & the anticipation of cocoa sounds like a good choice for tonight. maybe you could manage making me a cup just this one night? …while i make you dinner like i do EVERY night?…

I really like oolongs but I’m open to pretty much anything (although I’m still hesitant of pu-erh). Either way, any tea that expands my tastes, teaches me something, or promotes a love of tea is a winner in my book. If you have any questions, shoot an email to [email protected] or PM me.
