I am continuing my strawberry tea week here. With occasional moments of lusting for the elusive perfect milk oolong.
This was one of my very favourites and maybe still is if I do not drink strawberry tea every single day like I have been doing.
If it were just based on today’s experience, having had four cups of this—two steepings times two, I would lower the rating a bit. I may have under leafed the first two cups. However, the second batch had strawberries and an appropriate amount of dry leaf. A note of cinnamon crept into my cups that I hadn’t noticed before. Or am I dreaming this up?
The tea just seemed less divine than it did before. The scent of my teacup is just as intoxicating as before. The taste is still good. It just, I don’t know, tastes less creamy than I remember it being. Less vanilla. Less strawberry than I remember.
What is up with that?
