June 2014 harvest

Little rolled balls of whole and chopped green tea leaf. Dry leaf aroma is light citrus blossom-grass-vegetal. Wet leaf aroma is strongly brothy with vegetal, roasted chestnut and anise notes. Light yellow, viscous brew. Taste is refreshing and mimics the dry leaf aroma. With the second steep, it becomes more vegetal-chestnut with a hint of anise on the sip. A pronounced lemon taste and a whisper of smoke follow, giving way to a tangy feeling after the swallow. A bit drying with a happy and floral, white peach-like aftertaste. Very nice quality for a green tea 6 years old. Somebody who’s not me has the fortitude to not open their tea packages when they arrive.

2.5g, 250mL, 175F, 3 steeps.

Flavors: Anise, Butter, Chestnut, Drying, Flowers, Grass, Lemon, Orange Blossom, Peach, Smoke, Smooth, Tangy, Vegetable Broth, Vegetal

Preparation
175 °F / 79 °C 1 min, 0 sec 8 OZ / 250 ML

I’m glad I’m not the only one to still have tea from 2014. :)

I inherited so much tea last week, a good chunk of it older. I’m going to figure out some fun ways to disperse it as I sample through almost everything that’s not a single serving!

It’ll be interesting to see how all that old tea is holding up.

I assume you found me through some dodgy websites that installed viruses on your computer. Don’t worry, I’m here as your “customer support” ;) call girl. Beautiful escort at your service. I will accompany you virtually to online casinos in Indonesia. I even have a stash of male enhancement supplements from various European countries in my purse. Can I interest you in some CBD? I have a playlist for our evenings together ;) Should things go south I know about abortion services in Vietnam. Otherwise, I have friends all over the world who run daycares and elite schools. We can have our matrimonial services provided in India, but not before we have an astrological consultation. One of my many real estate agent friends can get us a luxury apartment, or should you choose to buy a house for our little family, I come from a long line of roofers, asphalters, garage door repairers, plumbers, electricians and exterminators should anything go wrong. I even once knew a cremation service available. Till death do us part, am I right?

Tea habits:

Among my favorites are all teas Nepali, sheng puerh, Wuyi yancha, Taiwanese oolong, a variety of black (red) teas from all over, herbal tisanes. I keep a few green and white teas on hand. Shou puerh is a cold weather brew. Tiny teapots and gaiwans are my usual brewing vessels when not preparing morning cups western style and pouring into my work thermos. Friend of teabags.
