I can’t believe I still had this tea! It’s a sipdown and a little magical as I thought it’s gone already. Well sorting the teas brings unexpected surprises I gues.
But it was still in my virtual cupboard, so yes, it was supposed to be somewhere.
Anyway, I had last session worth of tea left, so used strainer with the rest of leaves. Actually it was a little more than I was thinking, but the rest would be so little, so only way would be toss it out. I decided for stronger tea instead.
While it has been harvested 2 years ago, I was opening the pouch with a little more caution. Expecting foul aroma of rancid bergamot oil and stale vanilla. Nope! It was like opening last time. My smell memory told me it is completely fine.
When brewed, it was less creamy than I remember; but maybe my memory doesn’t saved that well. Maybe it could be because using more leaf. I don’t know. Anyway, it was genuine and very nice flavour, aroma and everything.
Very welcomed cuppa after day-long training for an exam held on 8th December. A day of exam of “being” DGSA (dangerous goods safety advisor); so I need to know ADR (similar to DOT Hazmat) regulations. It’s not easy, but I feel I can manage it. Somehow.
