From Camellia Sinensis

Here is a cake of 357g identified with the character of the tea in yellow and produced in Menghai from sheets of grade 7, that is to say large sizes. Rinsing releases warm forest, cereal (oats) and fruity fragrances. Its liquor, opaque and supple, boasts a sweet and tangy density evoking molasses or dried fruits (dates). Fine milky and peppery accents enhance the character of this Pu Er Shou with typical and rooting notes!

Pot of tea!

I took advantage of my staycation this week to meet up at the Camellia Sinensis tea house with a coworker/friend who is on mat leave right now. I’ve shopped at the store many, many times since moving to Montreal but this was actually my first time in the tea house side of the location.

I had such a lovely experience, though I’m sure much of that was just the amazing company and thrill of catching up with someone I missed dearly. She had brought her newborn with her as well (two months old) and she was such an angel! She slept the entire time, and is just the cutest thing. I don’t even like kids, but I feel like I’ll like her!

We split a cheese tray, and I had a delicious creme brulee – but of course the point of going to a teahouse is to have tea! I picked this one because I was just craving some good shou, and I opted to have it prebrewed in a teapot instead of brewing it myself because I was a little bit paranoid about having hot water around a newborn when I have such a penchant for being a sloppy pourer when making tea gongfu.

It was a great tea, and while I didn’t pay SUPER close attention to the specific flavour notes (because the point was to talk and catch up with my friend!) I do recall it tasting sweet, smooth & earthy with a clean finish and hints of date jam.
