Merry Christmas, everybody! I acquired some of this from a little market stall along the Champs Elysées on an art history trip- could it be any more romantic? :) It was between this oolong and the salted caramel flavour, and as it was coming up to Christmas, I picked this one!
I haven’t managed to do a proper gradual sit-down tasting but for this one: the first time I brewed it and drank it piping-hot, the first taste was definitely roast chestnuts. But not just a nutty taste… the soft mellowness and rich flavour of the chestnuts, working with a subtle and very tasty oolong. The dry leaves smell delicious too and look gorgeous with the sunflower petals.
Just a quick note while I’m finishing my Christmas lunch :)
