3 Tasting Notes

drank Buddha's Tears by T2
3 tasting notes

Rather than being flavoured with perfume or flavourings, these balls of tea are exposed to 3 parts Jasmine Blossoms per one part Tea at a heat which imparts the lovely Jasmine scent into the leaves before they’re hand rolled into balls of perfection. Only the best leaves are used for this high quality brew. When infusing, don’t worry about the balls unfurling, that will happen over a long period of time and doesn’t affect the nature of the infusion. Yes, these are a little on the pricey side but think about how much you’d spend on a bottle of wine, and you definitely get more out of these than that! Also, the balls can be reinfused up to 5 times in the same sitting.

drank Earl Grey by T2

Wonderful example of an Earl Grey. Traditionally an Earl Grey is a tea which is flavoured with Bergamot essence, extracted from the Bergamot orange. I find most Earl Grey’s to be flat and uninspired, whilst T2’s version is rich with refreshing and uplifting Bergamot scents and taste which trumps its competitors. If you like real Earl Grey, and not the piddly stuff with extras added to it, this is your brew. Recommend a shorter brewing time so that the Bergamot does not become overpowering.

Bio

in the coming days
i may take to flight
circling the trees
like a bird bound south
always fall back down
on my lazy wings
to the frozen ground
to my apathy

just as sure as the days go short
somehow we’re always waiting

in the coming days
don’t you be surprised
if i hibernate
if i hide my eyes
if you find me down
some dark hideaway
we could wait around
could watch the shadows change

and just as sure as the days grow short
somehow we’re always waiting

so i may call you up
and i may be inclined
to get drunk on words
to be short on time

and just as sure as the days grow short
somehow we’re always waiting
