Mm. Very solid green tea. I really like this. I’ve steeped it twice so far and the second steep was just as flavorful and remarkable as the first!

Idulgashinna, located in the Uva district, was one of the first tea gardens in the world to receive organic certification. This Chinese-style, gold-tipped Competition Grade tea has spidery leaves in a mosaic of black and gold hues. This sweet, malty cup also hints at muscatel grape. If you are fond of the finest teas in the world, add this one to your collection.

This is one of my favorite green teas. Not cheap but worth it for special mornings (like today). I steep it a little longer than some of my other greens without any detriment which is really nice. This morning, I notice that the liquor has a wonderful straw yellow color, a nice rounded fullness in the mouth, and there is an excellent balance of vanilla head notes with a soft maltiness that just lingers on forever. Mmmm…so good.
Sipdown no. 133 of the year 2014. Another biggie, more than 4 oz of tea. Huzzah!
I had intended to do some methodical morning tea drinking today, but everything went pear-shaped because around 9 this morning I realized that I had left my wallet somewhere yesterday. Ugh. I had visions of spending the morning calling everyone under the sun to cancel cards, etc. Fortunately, the BF remembered seeing me holding my wallet at a place where we stopped for lunch after taking the kids to shoot baskets. I called the place and they had it! Even more impressive, everything was still in it. Crisis averted.
But as a result, I only had a cup of English Breakfast this morning, followed by this. It was an interesting tea, and it turned out to be a good commuting tea despite my misgivings given it’s hearty, almost black-tea flavor. It’s goodbye, and it’s goodbye for good because LeafSpa is gone, but because the LeaftSpa Blink Bonnie has a similar flavor, I’ll at least get to visit with a similar flavored tea for a while longer.
