Home – 6:00 PM
So I went to afternoon tea today! The tearoom: The Steeping Room in Austin, TX. They had an amazing selection of teas! I chose a tea service with tea sandwiches (chicken watercress & edamame cucumber), scone (spiced apricot), teacake (glazed orange bundt), cookies (various), and a pot of Golden Monkey. Everything was tasty! I bought a small teacup and two teas to bring home with me – this is the first of them.
I’m fairly sure this blend is actually from Art of Tea, but it was already entered under the tearoom, so that works too.
It’s not great, but not bad. The blueberry flavor is the main event, and it’s a bit candy-ish but still nice enough. I happen to love blueberry. The jasmine is there as a nice supporting note, sweet and floral. I can’t really taste the green tea much, but it is slightly bitter even though I steeped it at a low temperature.
Overall, decent! I won’t have trouble finishing the 50g bag.
P.S. – I had planned to write a note for the tearoom, but the “Places” tab doesn’t seem to be working for me. Is that normal now or is it down for some reason…?
