From Jing Tea

Intense, pure, deep and mineral, with great sappy persistence and depth. Gently peachy fruit behind, with a perfumed, honeysuckle finish. Complex and masterful.

Brews reddish amber. Liquor smells like beeswax and humus (the rich soil, not the dip). Taste is buttery roasted oak with a hint of strawberries. Leaves a charcoal, cocoa finish. Mild astringency. Shares some of the characteristics I like in The Simple Leaf’s “Dawn.”

This post is likely to be a bit… Part of my Christmas present from Husband was a box of handmade chocolates and they’re terribly distracting! I shall try to focus on the tea as well as possible. (The nifty thing about them is that he could tell the person in the shop which I don’t like and have a box completely without minty chocolate and without liqour-y ones.) I’ve nearly eaten all of them anyway, om nom nom nom! I bet I’m going to get mocked for how quickly they went, but seriously! You can’t just have one chocolate. It’s unpossible!

Anyway, tea! Husband, when prompted, suggested an oolong. I thought that sounded like a good idea, so I thought I’d have this one. One more thing to tidy out of the cupboard. Today I’ve had the Great Steepster Cupboard Tidy of 2014. My cupboard housekeeping has rather slipped lately. I tend to gather a few things for removal before doing anything about it, but this time it had just never got done so the pile of things to be removed only got larger. Plus all the things that I didn’t actually have anymore because I’d forgotten to remove them when I used them up. Or never added in the first place. And of course the pile of stuff that went in the compost because it was unlikely to get used up ever. Some of it was from last year’s tea calendar! Brought my cupboard down to pretty much half the amount of teas. But it’s tidy now, and everything in it is stuff we would conceivably drink.

Not doing well with this tea. It’s very good. It’s oolong-y and roasty and very supreme indeed. Not sure it’s particularly more supreme than their normal one (which was sold out at the time which is why I bought this one), but it’s pretty supreme to me.

Smells like bark and tastes toasty and a bit bread crust-y and I wonder what’s inside this chocate with a nut on it? Ooh nougat! Om nom nom nom nom!

Yum, I love filled chocolates! :D

Angrboda

Me too! I think it’s my favourite kind of luxury-sweets.

Handmade chocolates totally ruin the mass-produced stuff.

Angrboda

They do, especially because the mass-produced stuff will always have a kind in it that nobody likes.
