70 Tasting Notes
This tea is the bomb.
That said, I am currently visiting friends in Ottawa —hence internet—and the water is just plain weird here. so the water is strange and the steeped tea does nottaste like itself. My friends who live here tell me that the water is hyper chlorinated.
My friends here have an N espresso machine, so we start the day with coffee and continue it with soda stream carbonated water (which somehow doesn’t retain the weird flavour).
I’ve been locked down for the better part of the year. Here, restrictions are a bit lighter. I got a haircut!!!!! (And look a bit less than a swamp thing.)
I’ll be doing more drinking of this tea when I get home to , what for me, is normal water..
Btw, this is evol ving ness..
Stopped into DTs after I remembered that I forgot to pick up my birthday free cup of tea. Well, my Bday was a month and two or three days ago so I missed the one month cutoff. My server was kind enough to offer me the tea of the day which was this one. Could be worse, right? Well, this tea had clearly been sitting around and boo in general in flavour: over steeped, stale, with none of the good stuff and way too much of the spice bad stuff.. Too bad, DTs. Yet another fail at winning me back; birthday treat becomes a birthday boo followed by a yuck.
