Lovely, lovely dry leaves. In low light, looking through it, there is almost a pinkish cast to the liquor.

Even sick, this seems like an exceptional tea. Smooth, warm, lightly brisk. It is indeed reminiscent of Darjeelings. There is a light astringency at the end of the sip.

I suspected this might happen. It’s a tea that I’d never spend the money on if it hadn’t been on sale for essentially half price with a certificate. Sigh. I’ll just have to enjoy this one while it lasts.

EDIT: As it cooled off, I was surprised when bringing the cup to my lips to smell vanilla. I don’t necessarily taste it, but I do smell it.

Tea afficianado. I wish I could make a living creating and serving tea parties, but alas, bills prevent that possibility. :) So I make do by catering tea parties for friends and co-workers and drinking tons of tea with my cats on my lap. :)
