I had this at our tea guild meeting today. We made a spice rub, scones with (eeeeevil) Earl Grey soaked currants, and spiced lapsang roasted almonds. I can’t figure out which was my fave part! Seriously, what an awesome end to a really long day. I was at an HR conference/tradeshow schmoozing with the vendors. Whew, what a trip. I have alot of follow up emails to send tomorrow, before I do it all over again :)
Anyhow, this tea was made really strong. I had two tiny cups (as in gaiwan style). Very delicious though, and super lemony. I swear, it was as if someone added lemon.
I’d like to see what a shorter steep would do.
Also, I’m not sure if this was the first or second flush. I suspect it was the second… so I just went with that!
On a side note, you know what’s amazing?? having tea peeps. I honestly don’t know what I’d do without all my peers here on Steepster and at the guild. Coming home from a night of tea talk, and writing about it here to share with my other tea-ples… (yes I just referred to y’all as tea-ples!)
Does it get any better??
