Must get more…
Must buy larger container next time…
I had quite the day, Dr’s with poor “bedside manner” and jerk like atittudes meets this tea… everything almost seems okay now.
Maybe I am starting to understand the more subtle notes of “black teas” but today detected floral scents under the manderine and spice. Soothing to the soul and the fractured sense of self – gotta love Dr’s and their ability to make one feel not only fat, but lazy all at once, and all because of a swollen, black finger… that is what I went in for and I came out with a sense of fat and lazy.
Delicious tea, to the point that I think I might be ready to venture into tasting straight blacks, no added flavours….
Hopefully the lab will garner conclusive results and show the Dr that he should stick to teh concern at hand… my puffy black finger that needs attention, and not my body fat, apparently my puffy black finger is a sign of high cholesterol… WFT?!
But I digress, this tea is delicious… I should buy more, soon.
I went to a few tea shops with my brother Saturday and walked away from Murchie’s with a Tuffy Basket Steeper and some new knowledge about steeping teas.
I am on my second steep, and loving every minute of it!
First steep was fragrant and flavourful, with lots of intense mandarin taste. While the second steep allowed for more of the spice to come through, so much so that I am worried the third steep might be a little flat. That doesn’t worry me since I’ve already gotten my money’s worth with two steeps.
