So before leaving for the border last night, I made a travel cup of this to help calm my nerves. I’d been curious about it and I hoped the new experience would distract me from my fears. (A quick rundown: On May 24th of 2011, I “landed” officially in Canada and became a permanent resident. Apparently on that date I needed to present the officer with a list of everything I had left to bring in with me. Because I was unaware of this, when I reached the border this morning with all of my things, they legally could have charged me taxes and duties on all of it. Spoiler: They didn’t.)
Anyway, the tastiness of this oolong did distract me into a conversation about it with the wife as we drove down towards New York, and I’m looking forward to trying this again with my new glass gaiwan. The lemon and mint worked well together, but didn’t overpower the delicious oolong…this is definitely one I’ll consider restocking.
