My friend who loves black tea and puerh came over for lunch today. I made Vegetarian Tower, which is whatever veggies you have on hand, steamed, stacked on toasted English muffins, with Brie melted over. I served this as our first of three teas.
When I asked my friend if she liked grapefruit she made a face but agreed to try the tea anyway. The surprise for her was that she liked it a lot. The surprise for me was that when paired with food, this tea changed a lot. I felt like I was drinking a cup of green tea while someone was sitting very very close to me peeling a juicy orange that was spraying a fine mist of fresh juice in my face. Oh my goodness! Now this might have to go on our next Lupicia order!
