It’s my 100th tasting note!

I picked this one up on a whim today. We went to Virtuous to get rosehips (our chinchilla likes to snack on them!) and this just looked beautiful in the jar – bright colors streaking through a crisp green leaf. It smells amazing – perfectly fruity. And brewed – wow! The scent is SO sweet, like gummy bears or fruity candies, but completely natural.

The first steep is surprisingly light, with more of a scent than a taste, although as it cools the buttery oolong comes out. It’s a very pale gold, so light that it appears clear as I’m pouring but in the teacup it takes on a color of light honey.

Second steep: Oh! So good. The taste is all buttery oolong, and the scent is still really sweet and fruity. Notes of pineapple and mango and apple and raspberry.

Right now I’m writing the first short story I’ve written in a long time, and listening to the INCREDIBLE music from the recent National Theatre production of Frankenstein. It’s a wonderful night!
