Well, I’m back…Sort of. Allergy season kicked my ass this year, then I had a cold, and on top of all that I am still on a medication that has the potential to affect my sense of smell (but only for two more months).
I decided to delete my (bad) rating on this one. I recently tried another of Mandarin Tea Room’s teas, and it had to have been one of the best if not the very best tea I’ve ever had. I now trust that when I tasted this, there was something wrong with my palate and not the tea! I also wish I’d had the patience to brew this gong fu style, but I was just starting to drink tea again after having months with an impaired sense of smell.
