It is the umpteenth cloudy day in a row. I needed some sunshine in my life somewhere, and derk has brought me so much sunshine – in so many ways! She provided some more today in the form of this tea.
I spotted a couple of teas that derk sent me and thought they looked just the ticket to brighten up today.
I had this one with breakfast. I was expecting it to be quite nutty but instead it was quite fruity! The green base is not covered up at all though, you can taste it perfectly and the strawberry is well balanced with it to be quite noticeable without being overpowering. The nuttiness that I tasted was of a sort that could easily be attributed to the green tea base itself, and was more noticeable on some sips than others.
Since derk had mentioned that this one doesn’t do as good a second steep as some other teas, I did not follow my usual morning method of steeping twice and combining.
Thank you, derk!
