Now that work is done, I’m going to go play some Civilization VI but before I get to gaming for relaxation and fun, I’ll drop a little note on this tea. My motto is work hard, play three times harder. hehe
This Dragon Ball weighed 8g, wrapped tightly in white paper with a bow. I read that it was shaped with cotton instead of saran wrap. It’s an Autumn 2017 harvest. The liquor is a pretty deep reddish brown color. By the third infusion, the tight Dragonball had broken up completely. It is floral but not perfumey at all (good hehe), has honey and molasses aroma and taste, some malt, sweet potato, and brown sugar. It’s a medium bodied tea but it has a pretty thick mouthfeel and a very sweet after-taste. It’s a nice on-the-go type of treat… Small, compact, good flavor.
