I’m always skeptical when people say you can resteep, but I was so in love with this tea when I tried it for the first time yesterday afternoon, I just had to try it. I was also a little worried because the leaves had expanded a lot with the first steep, and I was afraid they might be too big and displace the water in my cup! When I took them out of the fridge this morning, they smelled “green”, and I was also afraid that my tea may have taken on a green quality overnight. A lot of worries, as you can see.
But of course my worries were all in vain. It was heaven in a cup again, and as I brewed it (and even afterwards), my entire kitchen was filled with the fragrance of a garden full of lilac bushes. I honestly have no idea how Stacy does it. I never thought I’d be able to literally drink the scents I love so dearly.
Thanks, Stacy, for this very generous sample with my first order!
In other news, I fell asleep in under ten minutes last night, and it seemed like one of those heavy sleeps where I’d wake up feeling wonderful in the morning. I woke up at about 4:00 however, and couldn’t get back to sleep. I’m now at work, and I think I’ll power through the morning, but I know that shortly after lunch, I’m going to hit that infamous wall and risk falling asleep at my desk. Luckily I brought along some Taiwanese mountain black to keep me going, although I imagine I’ll guzzle that right quick and only want more. I really should invest in a second timolino! Do you guys have multiple mugs you take to work/school/wherever it is you spend most of your day?
