Sipped on this yesterday.
Though there’s nothing wrong with CTC grades, they usually just aren’t my jam. However I was really impressed with this one when I got a chance to try it at Toronto Tea Festival and I couldn’t resist grabbing a bag for myself. It’s so rich and full bodied with exactly the right amount of brisk flavours of malt, dark honey, citrus, and just a hint of a wood-y mineral note. Really perfect for a robust cup of breakfast tea.
Though this is a black tea that’s delicious on its own, I went for an extra long steep and a generous splash of cream in my mug today. As everyone here in Montreal recover’s from yesterday’s intense (but very beautiful) ice storm, I felt like I needed something hearty but cozy to keep warm with. I’m also feeling incredibly thankful that I’m not among the quarter of people in the city who are STILL without power following the storm. What a crazy Spring it’s been so far…

This was after the storm when the ice was just starting to melt, but picture that thick layer of ice that’s perfectly coating the branches on EVERYTHING. That’s exactly what the storm was like… Like, pretty much literally everything.
