i went to the post office to mail of some swaps and then on my way back to the office walked through the big ritzy Jefferson hotel that is a block wide. so when i say ‘walked through’ i mean took a short cut through the hotel to the next block over haha.
then decided to get a cup of tea.
they have a small to-go shop on the lower lever and i looked at their tea list and the special blends include ‘richmond blend’ from rostov’s coffee & tea. …. the only cup of tea i’ve ever paid for and then dumped out.
(rostov’s is a local business here and the first place i bought loose leaf tea. and they sell their tea in plasic ziplock bags and as i drank more tea as a newbie i eventually threw them all away and didn’t finish a single bag of their tea once i learned better.)
this does not bode well for my chocolate high tea reservation at The Jefferson in a few weeks.
this green tea is NOT from rostov’s. but the notes and ratings on this tea from Mighty Leaf are not so great either. however, personally, i think this tea is fine.
i did understeep it, cuz i was walking with the paper to-go cup and understeeped is WAY less annoying than over-steeped. the green tea is fine and the fruit is just a nudge.
