Back to work tomorrow. If I hadn’t felt so lousy, the past several days would’ve seemed like a mini-vacation: feet up, rocking chair, crocheting, binge watches (That Girl and Moonlighting), finished a couple books…and finally, enough going on in the tastebud regions to enjoy a good cuppa this afternoon.
I wouldn’t have pegged this as a Darjeeling had I not read up on it first. The leaves were a nice melange of brown and green, and it steeped to the color of a new penny. One of my office favorites is a Tetley’s black and green blend—this reminds me of a fresher, more elegant version. The Palais des Thes description mentions “planty notes,” which come across nicely in the flavor and “floral notes,” which are more evident in the scent.
