I love this tea shaker thing but leaking on me is not nice. This is actually what I was going to grab to drink this morning over that oolong and since I couldn’t finish it, it was time to switch teas.
I have been holding on to this since the older harvests were on sale and of course I had to get this one. It’s freaking me out that autumn stuff is already popping up…I saw two kinds of pumpkin beer in Whole Foods yesterday…it’s still summery here for a good 10 weeks!
This to me though does not taste like fall. It tastes like fresh green beans soaked in butter and sparkling water. The sparkling quality is kind of crazy in here! Very much like champagne but with a far, far richer flavor. And I don’t think this flavor has a season because I want it all the time. As this first steeping cooled too I started to get brown sugar.
Second steep took on a bit of a nuttier taste, losing a bit of that green bean flavor, but it’s still sweet and sparkling.
More later, perhaps. Going to a movie in about an hour but it’s one of these small theatres where you can get drinks and food inside so sneaking tea is not going to work!
