I wouldn’t normally make Dahongpao grandpa style, but this past weekend I brought some of this to a friend in the city and I wanted to steep some outside in the park before meeting up. Grandpa Style was honestly just the most convenient way to do that…
It worked really well though because this was like drinking warm and toasty cinnamon pastry! I got those mineral/rocky notes and grilled nut elements but they just paled in comparison to the surprising taste of baked goods, cinnamon, and a hint of raisin. It just melted my heart.
