The TTB has arrived! So big, so many teas… no chance to try them all!
I have a day off today, so rare home breakfast and tea; and mood for “basic” tea, not any desserty flavour, no strong chais and/or whatever there is in a TTB. There are so many teas which sounded so good, but I am too afraid to be disgruntled because tea.
Osmanthus black tea was right up to my alley, flavoured, but not too much. So I used the rest that was in the pouch meaning 3 and half grams; and steeped it for 4-5 minutes. Well, it is a lovely black tea base, very smooth for me, a bit roasted and chocolately; I am surprised that Irina founds it completely different. Sadly, the osmanthus is very light, giving a bit of floral qualites and its distinctive aroma. A little dill-y if you wonder.
But for breakfast it was fine.
