I’m very proud of myself. I set a timer for my tea today, so I wouldn’t run the risk of forgetting about it and oversteeping. So. Stash advises 1-3 minutes, I go 2:45 on the dot.
Now, the inhale: it’s a light raspberry nose. I like that, I don’t want to be hit in the face with berry-ness this afternoon. You can actually smell the tea, too. The first sip takes me a second to adjust: Cardboard? Second sip: okay, there’s some white tea here. The raspberry is faint, but as my tea rapidly cools, I can [faintly] taste the raspberry longer and longer after I swallow. It’s light, it’s soothing, it’s not bad for a Friday afternoon.
