This is the first of my tea-of-the-month collection to finish off. This saddens me. I adore this tea.It’s the first days of summer heat, but I’m steeping this up anyway. My last cup of Snow Dragon is sitting beside me now, filling the air with its clean, vegetal fragrance. It’s such a crisp cup of tea, and it even tastes smooth and relaxing. I get nervous brewing teas with short steep times (fifteen seconds!) but I didn’t botch it up this time. Despite the summer heat, it’s refreshing. It’s so light that I hardly notice the thin film of sweat across my brow.
My tin may be empty, but this one works for multiple steeps. It’s rare that I’ll dry out leaves to steep them again later, but this one is well worth the effort.
