223 Tasting Notes
Finishing this from my timolino after making it to afternoon then not getting a chance to finish it at work. So well, and it goes with the rain outside. Warming and naturally sweet.
Perfect for a rainy autumnal afternoon!
Took a thermos of this to the market today to perk me up during the drizzle and clouds. Worked well! Had a dash of milk in it, really good.
Just lovely, as always.
Comfort food in a mug. Sorely needed at the moment. And it even re-steeped pretty well.
This week was just odd. My medical condition seems to be playing up, so I’ve spent a good part of this week at home on the couch, with my giant box of stargate keeping my company.
I steeped this one a few times on Friday, around 4 1min steeps. A lovely sweet oolong, with a generous amber colour in each steep. Very enjoyable.
Ok, I’ve finally worked out how to brew this one. No more than 3 mins, and you get just a hint of tart, which is more flavour than anything, then the hit of sweetness. Just beautiful.
I’d agree with Michelle’s assessment. The pomegranate adds a little sweetness, perhaps, but not much else. Pretty tasty still.
Thanks for the sample Michelle!
The other half and I both had a glass of this today. Iced of course, because who is having hot herbals in 32oC heat? Especially in my house. North facing up the river. Lotsa sun. Anywho, this lovely, naturally sweet, and so refreshing iced. My supply is from my Christmas tea bauble bag.
