1045 Tasting Notes
Ooof. This weather! We didn’t even get that much snow compared to the rest of the state…but it is so cold my garage door was frozen shut and my boss had to come pick me up and bring me to work :(
Anyway, LOTS OF HOT TEA TODAY. Special dark is perfect for this weather :)
Go home Arctic, you’re drunk! http://scienceblogs.com/gregladen/2014/01/05/go-home-arctic-youre-drunk/
Thank you so much CrowKettle for sharing some of this special tea with me! :D
It DOES have a really interesting combination of black tea and white tea characteristics. There is enough going on here to keep me rapt sip after sip! I would purchase some in the future, if my cupboard is ever low enough to allow it, lol.
blacklog from Christmas!
I got to try the Zhen Qu version of this due to a generous gift from CrowKettle (I bought the oolong version, myself.) I think the dry leaf is so cute and curly :D
For some reason this is my favorite traveling tea right now so I steeped up a to-go cup yesterday for the hour drive to my in-law’s house for the holidays. I honestly couldn’t tell you which I prefer, the black or the oolong. They are both wonderful!
