So… looks away shamefully
I’ve done something that I never imagined doing, something that six months ago, I would have decried with all of my tea might.
But… well, it’s made me happy, it’s brought me those fleeting sips of heaven that I crave so desperately!!
Yup, I added sugar, and plenty of it, to my oolong. AND milk. Yup, and I stand by it! it’s brought the standard of my tea experiences up to a tolerable level of badness.
It seems to work here because well, since I can’t taste the natural sweetness in teas, adding sugar just brings it back to how it normally tastes, for me anyhow. and the milk, ehhh that was simply an inspired decision. It tastes just like a simple red rose tea this way. Hey, I’ll take what I can get! pretty darn great when compared to nothing at all…
Not so much as the cup cools, it kinda gets gross then… but when hot, holy yummm :)
Anyhow, I hope everyone here is well. Miss you all xx
Really hit the spot this morning! a little plastic-ish, since it’s getting old already.
This seems to be my go to tea lately. Funny, when I found the Rose Congou, I thought it was destined to be my tea “home” but for some reason I always end up reaching for this oolong. Lord knows what would happen if I ever found my elusive roasty toasty heaven in a cup! :P
One day, I WILL make it to 7 steeps, it’s a goal of mine.
Oh, something I really love about this one is that even in the second and third steep, it never loses the sweetness. I think maybe in the third it gets a tad weak, but not if I do short steeps. What does the fourth steep door hide hmm? Ahhh, like I said… one day!
Now, off to watch some more mindless television while I take my mind off this incredibly long and awkward week!
