Grrr…. Thanks to the Mother Nature’s arctic temperatures and almost no sun (the sun comes out when it’s -20C but I don’t want to go out then), I found myself all stuffed up as well as smell and taste handicapped. I can’t smell or taste my tea!! This is tragedy!
I made this yesterday for my oldest daughter who was visiting, when I was still able to tell the difference between tea and water. She took a sip and said “wow… what is this?? This is such a treat! I’ve never tasted anything like that before!”
Yup… pretty much the same reaction I had when I tried it for the first time. Pure bliss…
This is such fragrant and delicious tea… I wish I could smell or taste it right now. I resteeped the leaves from last night hoping for some taste or aroma, and I am getting ever so faint something, but it’s just not what it should be. This is a third steep and there should still be a lot of flavour left but my taste buds are just refusing to work.
