Palais des Thés Advent Calendar – Day 11
Yay, a nice Chinese green tea is the perfect thing for after lunch! Palais des Thés is not generally the place I would go to source such a tea, but I’m thankful to have this sachet available nonetheless.
This is a perfectly nice, mild dragonwell. It’s smooth and creamy with light vegetal notes that remind me of sugar snap peas and edamame. There’s some tasty nuttiness as well, perhaps pine nuts? Now that I mention it, there is a slight piney note here as well. And there’s a little hint of apricot at the end, which is something I often find in Chinese green teas.
It’s perfectly lovely and drinkable, and it’s making my workday so much better. :)
