Within three blocks of where I live, there are four bakeries and cafes where I can pick up almond croissants. Thankfully, I don’t succumb very often. Yesterday, I did. The ones I picked up were a bit dry but delicious. I am having them now with this tea.
I could probably drink this tea every day. It has a nice heft, a malty sweetness and depth. It is good hot, lukewarm, and left over from the day before. :)
I’m also looking for a Keemun that is slightly smoky. If anyone has any ideas, please let me know.
One day, I am going to pick up an almond croissant from each of these places and do a taste-off to find my favourite. As is, I don’t eat croissants often enough to remember that variations which my neighbourhood has on offer.
