Oh wow, this was SOOOO GOOOOD!!!
I stopped in at my docs today, and since I was in the area (for once, when they are open!) I dropped in to exchange some tea and grab a cuppa.
Going through all the options, I was in one of those super indecisive moods where I hrmm and huhhh through virtually every option and then torture the staff while I do it all over again. This, after I’d done virtually the same whilst purchasing a pair of spring boots… errnoooo I did not buy another pair of brown boots, said the girl with two pairs already in her closet… heh. Hey to be fair, I really need a pair to get me through the spring, since my other ones are either insanely high heeled or ultra warm for the winter. and I hate wearing nylon socks, they never look right with “work shoes”… so boots are really my only alternative until it gets warm enough to wear sandals.
Anyhow, onto the tea. The girl at the shop was so patient, pulling down all the teas I wanted to try. Of course my mind was made up when saw their only pu’erh, and I asked her if they can add ginger to the cup. Thankfully, she said yes! yay! It was amaaaazing. No fishiness at all. The texture was a little thick, and creamy like… chocolate milk, except without any of the graininess. In fact, it reminded me of cocoa in some ways, or even a mild chicory sans the abrasive factor.
However, it wasn’t as potent as the DT version, which I didn’t mind because it’s not like I was at work, nor am I deathly ill…
Oh and did I mention that the girl who served me (I’d mention her name but that would be an invasion of her privacy, I think) gave me the cup on the house?!? for my troubles with the tea I came to exchange. AND some free samples. Now THAT is customer service folks :)
