Adventaggedon Day 10 – Tea 6/6
Nothing to put you quite in the holiday spirit like a tea named after Lord Voldemort.
That said, I was so incredibly excited to see this tea this morning because it meant I had an excuse to have a nice Gongfu tea session! Between being so slammed at work with the holiday season, the podcast, and balancing doing six advent calendars I’ve really not had time to squeeze in any Gongfu sessions on top of all that. However, I started my day with one and it really put me in a good mood for the rest of the day. So, I guess you could say that he who shall not be named really did boost my holiday cheer!
This isn’t the best Lapsang Souchong that I’ve ever had, but it really hit the spot this morning and I was definitely not in the mood to be picky about it. The taste is pretty intense/harshly smokey but with a brassy/metallic type of twang about it. Like licking a penny that’s been in a campfire pit – but in an actually tasty way, as gnarly as that sounds. Over steeps it got a little fruitier, with more of a red fruit twang than a metallic twang. Also pretty woody, as well.
Loved this!! The Harry Potter advent seriously continues to deliver!
