We’re prepped for the big rainstorm rolling through. Took down all the windchimes haha, tarped what needed to be tarped, set up the pump for our yard prone to flooding, brought in some firewood in case the power goes out. Cold and wet, I came back in with freezing hands and knew this tea from Martin was what I needed to cast away the chill.
Made one cup for me and one for Kiki. This sips with a clean, fairly mellow herbal-sweet peppermint followed by the hot spice of ginger that dominates the red peppercorn. The red peppercorn also provides a hint of its exotic floral-fruity perfume. I could swear there’s also cinnamon in this because I feel like I taste it mid-mouth, but unless it’s an added flavor it isn’t in this blend. It’s a smooth, clean tea that I think gets some minerality from the puerh. Though I can’t necessarily taste the puerh’s trademark earthy flavor, I know its there and supporting the herbs and spices.
I like it. Kiki likes it. Simple, smooth and spicy and a good soul-warmer. Thanks, Martin :)
