I’m happy that I left my work teapot at home. I wanted to drink coffee or a black tea, but my wife had this lying on the counter. I’m tired today, but I’ve a lot to get ready for tonight. We’re not planning on going anywhere or having folks over, but I want to get the cleaning/organizing out of the way, so we can maybe have a bit of peace with that, and maybe get some food thrown into the oven for the next two days.
This tea finds a regular place in the house. My wife loves the heck out of the blend. I, too, will make a cuppa now and again, when the mood hits. The dry leaf reminds me of a lemon meringue pie-very prominent citrus and tart notes on the nose—and makes the mouth salivate.
I boil the water, fill an empty sachet, and let it sit while I drink it down. I give it an initial 3-5 minutes to steep before taking the first sip. I mostly taste lemons, with a hint of whipped egg white (meringue). I’m sure if I added sugar, there’d be a stronger sweetness to it, but I like it as is. I’ll have to try it when my wife makes a pot, to see what it’s like. She normally adds a sugar cube or two to the pot.
