A little bird told me that this tea was reblended for this month’s blends club… the month that I cancelled. Of course, I knew that would happen! One of my favorite blends ever, and I cancelled right before it was reblended in a very limited capacity. It is just about enough to make me rejoin the blends club, especially since I’ve been fairly successful in selling off the ones I don’t like lately. I mean, it’s only $17/month.
This is an elderly tea for sure. You can sit on many black blends for a long time, but that’s just not the case for oolongs and greens. I’ve been cold brewing through a large stock of a green Dammann blend that has lost most of its flavor, and it’s kind of sad. This one has hints of greatness around the edges still. Lovely florals, notes of butter and candy. The are just weak.
Much as I don’t want to just “get through” this blend, I’m wondering if I should cold brew. It’s certainly not getting any younger.
