GCTTB DAY 7
Wow, this tea is amazing! I don’t know anything about dianhong, as I’ve never tried it before, but I must say that this flavoured version is absolutely delicious. I only used one ball this morning for a quick steep. It had barely begun to open up so once I get home I will try a couple more steeps to see how the flavours change. It smelled decadently sweet and creamy – some of the notes I got were vanilla, custard, butter, and whipped cream. To be honest, I’ve never had authentic french toast before (that I can remember), so I am unsure how well it holds up the the expected flavours, but on its own it’s extremely flavourful without being overly sweet. Smooth, creamy, and quite rich. I am pretty excited to see how this tea changes with more steeps.
