A dangerous name for a tea. I’m not quite sure “who made donuts”, but they are highly addictive.
The tea is a gorgeous loosely compressed mess. The leaves have been settling in my new clay jar for a few weeks, so they’ve had time to stink up the place. I opened the lid to be greeted by a heady floral note, strong grass, and fresh hot maple syrup. This is super dank. I warmed up my shibo and prepared for brewing. The scent of the vibrant leaves opened up into some crystallized brown sugar, oatmeal, and pancakes drowned in maple syrup (maybe breakfast is on my mind). The taste is springy. The brew begins heavy on lemon and acidity. Then, the soup soothes out to a freshly baked apple turnover. The taste is very nice, flaky, and sweet. However, the acidity lingers in the background sparking the taste buds. The aftertaste is thick and long with powdered sugar and fruit. Then, the donut hit me. A smooth cooling sensation that begins around steep two melds with the acidity and rises from the stomach. The process is slow but constant. Suddenly, I experienced an intense pressure on my solar plexus that chilled my lungs. The frost moves up and down my spine bumping into the back of my neck. This tea is a powerhouse. The feeling is electric and uplifting with viscosity whipping the tongue. Lastly, a good note, the brew remains sweet in the forefront throughout the entire session. The dessert taste fades but a stevia succulence persists. A very nice tea. I can see why it has such a price.
