Ending today’s caffeine with a mouthful of butter. It even smells buttery in the packet.

This is, I gather from the name, an Alishan. It’s made up of rolled balls of tea that are dark to medium green, with some stems in the mix.

After rinsing, I steeped in the gaiwan at 195F starting at 15 sec.

The tea is a light, butter yellow color, clear, and has a slightly floral scent. But the main smell is butter.

Taste: butter.

The subsequent steeps: butter.

Fortunately, I love butter.

Now I must go lie down as I woke up with a sore throat, and it isn’t really getting better.

Flavors: Butter, Floral

Do you ever find yourself just eating a pad of butter? I do.

I have not, but my kids have done that. Another parent once described butter pats to me as “the candy of the diary group” which I’ve never forgotten because it seems pretty accurate.

I grew up on every brand of margarine available. Butter was a rarity and disgusting to me as a child because of that. If I went to a friend’s and their parents fed me Kraft Mac and Cheese made with butter, I could tell it wasn’t made with margarine and wouldn’t eat it. Sad childhood. Making up for it now.

__Morgana__

Hah! I can relate except that my childhood experiences with margarine are the reason we always have only butter in the house. My older son has started asking for I can’t believe it’s not butter lately and I keep trying to explain that it’s is a bad idea. He likes how it tastes though.
