A few months back, my wife discovered a discount shop that carries a lot of random items. She found a large stash of loose leaf teas, so she bought the lot, and gifted them to me. I took this one to work. I typically brew my tea Western style at work. It’s much easier with the flow of everything, even with a sitting job.

Anyway, I’ve quite a bit of it, so I try to get a cup in about every week. One of my coworkers will drink a cup, too, on the account that they love everything anise. I like that the anise isn’t too strong, but it definitely helps balance out the tea. I also thought that it was interesting to see that it had a black/ripe puerh base. Helps bring the blend together.

I don’t get much orange from the cup, though. I can’t really place it, but it’s easily drinkable. I left the tea in the infuser a bit too long this morning, but it wasn’t bitter, so I suppose it has that going for it, too.

Drinking down a lot of my teas in 2020. I may not observe these sessions as much as I’d like, but I’ll note them, when the mood strikes.
