A Liquid Proust tea called, “What the Heck A Nutty Birthday Oolong” that I had ordered with the French Toast Dianhong, Batch # 4.
I must say that the dry leaf/ingredients reminds me of my grandfather-in-law’s pig cracklings that he makes for the family from time to time. It has that bacon grease aroma, which almost made me weary of trying the tea. However, after getting brave last night, I drank this tea for nearly five (the full stock) and ate the roasted pecans/walnuts in the tea. I must say that the wet leaf was different than the dry—it was nuttier and reminded me of a burnt pecan pie. The taste WAS pecan pie for the first two steeps, but it moved onto a chocolaty/slightly maple tea. It was an odd blend, but it was satisfying for the late afternoon/evening.
Oh yes, and the walnuts/pecans are nice for a snack, too. As I’ve previously mentioned before, my wife always knows when I’m drinking an LP blend, mostly because I am caught eating the contents from the gaiwan during the session and/or exclaiming, “You need to eat this…”
