From Metropolitan Tea Company

Excellent fullness and subtle China sweetness. Only produced during March and April when the mountain air is moist and cool.

This tea which is relatively inexpensive taste better than some other more expensive Yunnan teas that I’ve tried. It holds the typical Yunnan qualities, and then some, but without having to pay an elaborate price that some tea stores charge for this type of tea. Yunnan black teas are my preference and I keep this tea stocked at all times.

I’m home! The comfort is much needed. What an awkward trip that was.
A friend of mine is going through a rough time and blames me for part of it (because I am not romantically interested). I feel terrible about it, but I just can’t date someone I have no feelings for. I’ve been there and no, they don’t “grow over time”, at least not for me. Even still… If it hurts me to see my friend go through what seems to be a deep, legit depression, I don’t want to imagine the suffering he is going through. So much frustration! I don’t know what to do about it (and still respect myself at the end of the day)

Anyhow, while we were in Ottawa, we stopped at a place called Tea Store. In the Market. A cute little shop with all sorts of pots and mugs on display. They sold loose tea as well, mostly from Metropolitan, but also Kusmi and a few other brands.
Unfortunately, only the Metropolitan Teas were available by the cup, so I settled for this one. Lately, I’ve been craving Yunnans every now and then, but not enough for me to keep any in my cupboard. Well, maybe a few cups worth, but certainly not in the minimum purchase amount I’d have to buy.
So yeah, this cuppa really hit my craving. Or it would have if the mood hadn’t been so melancholy.
It was sweet like honey, or maybe honeysuckle, with an edge of hay or straw. Dusty sunshine! A little complex, which I love.
I also really enjoyed the smoothness. However it was a tad thick, and heavy. Sadly, that is the part that makes me pause, and not indulge very often. Ah well, it really is great once in awhile!!

I haven’t perused the current menu of Metropolitan Tea selections—but this one sounds well worth perusing and pursuing.

Gmathis, I don’t think it’s available to the public. I inquired once and they indicated it was only for wholesale purchases. Apparently they have hundreds of blends available.
