So good. I was hoping for more of a green refreshing tea, but this turned out all warm and roasty. Not exactly what I was seeking… oh well, it was so full of flavour I’m not sure I mind. And I should have remembered back to when I bought this one and was told it was made in the old style, not the newer one that’s all zingy.
Anyhow. Notes of chestnut, bamboo, vanilla, okra, and something I can’t quite put my finger on. Autumn maybe. Yeah lets go with that… all with a hint of lingering summer in the air. Day old cut grass (in a good way)
I need to hit up Kensington Market more often. This place made it to the tea festival in January, but I didn’t get a chance to see their teas because it was swarmed with people all the time. I’d been meaning to visit ever since.
I chatted with the owner for atleast half an hour before picking some of this up. He recommended this one, highly. and he was right.
I’m finding notes of sweet potato, molasses, maybe corn? second infusion had a slight menthol effect, and the third one has a bit of smokiness to it.
Very sweet on it’s own. Reminds me slightly of a baked ham, with brown sugar (sans pineapple and saltiness haha)
On a more personal note, I had some disturbing news from the doctor yesterday. This tea purchase was my aftercare. Still processing things. Nothing life threatening but I don’t think it will go away and it has me questioning every decision I’ve ever made. and the medication… seems I have more decisions to make now. Sorry for the vagueness. Sighs. Curveballs suck.
