Slowly settling back into life here after a brief time away overindulging in music and food, both glorious. Both were good for my soul. The food choices were likely not particularly good for my health, but damn, my spirit sang.
And now, reality again. And tea. Thankfully, tea is a constant, either here or there.
Reached into my box from Daylon for another mystery sample.
A lovely lilt of floral as the water hits the leaves. Jasmine, smells like jasmine. The leaves initially appear to be a bit broken, but as they begin to unfurl, they are small and relatively slender, still attached to their stems and stalks.
The taste is honeyed jasmine and green and a bit of earth and a bit of astringency at the tail end of the sip. Lovely, and not all that different from restaurant jasmine green.
As the tea cools a bit, the body of the tea becomes heavier, a bit more grounded, as opposed to the initial heady floral notes.
I will update as I move through this cup onto the following steeps.
The second steep is creamy, but floral flavour is fading.
The third steep—the leaves are done.
Thank you, Daylon R. Thomas, for the sample.
Flavors: Astringent, Green, Honey, Jasmine
