Tea with a Shapeshifter
Laying hands on TwoDog’s Privates
At the beginning of the session, I was worried. The W2T site notes that “There is some humidity that still shows up in early steeps…”, which is not unlike observing that the day after hitting the iceberg, the Titanic was somewhat damp. Granted, this could be related to my history of insufficient rinsing, which is being chronicled here with some regularity.
Thankfully, it only took a couple of steeps for these flavors to integrate into the proceedings instead of dominating them. Once this had occured, I found myself enjoying cup after cup of delicious brew. They just kept piling up, like clowns out of a clown car, well past the point where I lost track of the number. The relaxation afforded me by the complex yet reassuringly familiar sensations of this tea had me well past caring about things like steep number, duration, or water temperature, but the leaves carried on undeterred.
The flavor profile is a tricky one to describe, bringing so many different enjoyable notes for brief periods and changing them often. Also unhelpful for this section was Steepster going down right when I tried to write this up, leaving me with only the memories that lasted until morning to work with.
Another vastly enjoyable session from W2T provided you don’t fear the wetter storages. I think it was let back up to breathe before it drowned, but YMMV.
