So no tea for me yesterday, as I was home and all my awesome teas are at work. Something i am changing today. I packed up about 20 teas to bring home. Anyway, The oolong streak is over and it looks like I have gone black. This tea is really nice to look at in the bag and in my infuser. The smell doesn’t give much away.
I brewed for 3 minutes in my ingenuiTEA after a 30 second rinse. It is a dark tea. It smells really nice, I am thinking it is a Ceylon base. There is a spicy sweetness coming off the steam. There is initial bitterness on the first sip, and the spices are there. There are subtle hints of vanilla, but finding the ginger and cardamom is tricky. I wonder if the rinse had something to do with it. There is definitely a spice profile but separating them out is proving difficult. An enjoyable cup I know I will be revisiting.
