I haven’t had this in a while but for the past few days hubby and I have been making a large tetsubin of tea and doing yoga together by candlelight with Pandora playing before bed. I am trying to spring back from this blasted upper respiratory thing and get back in decent shape. I picked this one tonight. We typically have green, white, or oolong together, rarely black tea.
This still has a delicate creaminess, but I tasted something tonight I don’t remember picking up before. In previous notes I said it had a light nutty flavor, perhaps walnuts, but tonight I am definitely getting a fruity note. The last tea in the tetsubin was a plain Bai Mu Dan but I did actually make the tea in a smaller pot and resteep the leaves to combine the two steeps in the tetsubin. The last tea in that small pot was Palace of Roses, but I rinsed it before making this. I wonder if it still could have added flavor to the tea? If it did, it was a brilliant accident because this is amazing. I see another note that mentions this tea tasting floral. I feel like I am getting a light fruity note for sure. I will have to try this again and see if I get the same thing.
