Adventaggedon Day Six – 5/5
We had company at the office today so my last few advent teas were consumed very quickly so I didn’t miss getting all my photos in before five. I wish I had gotten to spend more time really sitting with this mug and focusing on the flavour instead of speed slurping. Darjeeling is not a chugging kind of tea.
Dry leaf smelled really fragrant though with a nose that reminded me of walking into a florists right before Valentine’s Day. Steeped up, I got notes of sugar snap peas, just a hint of freshly zested lemon peel, and a lovely thick heady floral that was like fresh cut roses that still have a bit of that greener “chlorophyll” smell to the stems from being trimmed. This was a very evocative Darjeeling to me, and I look forward to revisiting the rest of the sample sometime when I’m less rushed.
