This came from Terri HarpLady – thanks!
I was waiting for the right time to try this… today was a lazy day, but a good day. I finally got to sleep!
The first steep of this, and I can smell the Laoshan black in here. Bready and rich and dark, it dominates the smell. When I first take a sip, it’s all perfumy dry rose, and that goes well with the astringency of the black. It’s very smooth.
The second steep, and it’s completely different. This is oranges and dark chocolate. What was dry and stiff and powdery and polite is now warm and inviting and rich and smooth.
It’s such a wildly different experience that I can’t decide which I prefer. It’s a fantastic tea.
