My 200th Tasting Note!
This is my last sipdown of the evening, and I am very, very sorry to see this go! I received a sample of the Laoshan Black with my last order, and mixed them 1:1 at something like 1-1/4tsp each in my 16oz mug.
Forget the sipdown. This is going on the shopping list. The chocolate maltiness of the Laoshan Black is just dancing with the Eight Treasures Yabao in the cup, and making something new and graceful.
Now, I adore their Bergamot Rose Laoshan Black blend, but this may actually give it a run for its money. I might actually, dare I say it, like it a little better because it has even more layers and a balance I just couldn’t anticipate when I dumped the blend in the cup.
I had more plans this evening, of other things I wanted to do, to organize, or to clean, but they’re sliding from my mind like clouds burnt off by the sun. Mmm…
Totally going on the shopping list.
