Ok, so I should have mentioned in my previous note… I love Friday the 13th.
This day is my lucky day. I met my boyfriend of 3+ years on a Friday the 13th, I won a ton of stuffed animals at an arcade on a Friday the 13, and I found my Jeep (first car) on a Friday the 13th of last year. So this day has a good track record for me. Today was also a good day – I had a delicious dinner with my parents at the restaurant a minute away from where I live, and it is also Friday, which means I got off work at 1 as usual and had time for a nap. So hooray for good days! And man, that dinner was amazing.
Now on this special day I am feeling the need for some pretty darn delicious tea. Enter Laoshan Black. I just had an AMAZING creme brulee for dessert at that restaurant, perfectly done, and the server burnt the sugar right at our table for us, but I still feel the need for some decadence. So yeah, this tea.
It is currently too hot to drink, but man, it smells like a caramel brownie with a malt note right now. Smells soo delish. Can’t wait to taste this gem of a tea! Oh and my kitty (who is fine from the tea leaf lol, but thanks to all those who replied to my topic in the discussions!) is very intrigued by this tea lol, he even knows its a good one, he’s sniffed it about 3 times, then has gotten scared from the steam. I’m not letting him drink any of it, but I am amused he thinks it smells good! :)’
ETA – Finally tasted this cup. Yes, lots of malt and caramel today, with a dark chocolatey note as well! This tea is just so consistently good, it baffles me. Definitely on par with my delicious dessert tonight :D
