Today, I went to the market and picked up a giant cauliflower to oven roast, and some corn on a cobs. Now that cherry season is over, I’m all into corn on a cob, can’t get enough of it!
When I came back, I wanted a comforting tea. It’s been raining a lot here lately and it’s rather on the cool side.
This tea was purchased during Butiki’s birthday sale.
I’m already a fan of Darjeeling SF, but this has a different profile than a typical second flush.
I don’t get that fruity “grapey” muscatel I normally associate with SF.
Surprisingly, I get bitter chocolate and tobacco mostly, with floral notes.
It’s malty and full bodied. The’s a nice astringent finish, well balanced by the natural sweetness of this tea.
It’s provided a very good afternoon sipping, glad I got 2oz of this.
