Digging through my tea stash and finding things that I forgot I had!

This is the 2015 version of this, it’s a little bit different than the one I’d had before, but still delicious. Super chocolaty, I think the most chocolaty I’ve had other than Verdant’s Laoshan Black. I remember the last harvest being more like milk chocolate; this one is more dark chocolaty. Nice honey sweetness, wheaty malt, and just a touch of a floral note. It reminds me of a pastry that they used to have at Panera Bread, a dark chocolate and honey croissant. It’s really tasty and I’m glad I found this.

Ming Ming has expanded and opened up a sushi shop, which, while an odd combination with Chinese tea shop, seems to be bringing in quite a bit of business. The sushi is fairly good and very decently priced. I really hope that they don’t stop selling tea, but I doubt that would happen as the husband/owner is a big tea aficionado.
