2022 Spring Tea Swap – Day 2
From Emilie!

So fun to try a tea from a new-to-me tea shop! I love smoky teas so this was a winner in my book. Not only was it smoky but it had an intriguing spiciness to it as well. I wouldn’t say it was complex – just a straightforward, enjoyable smoked black tea.

Flavors: Smoke, Spicy

This is a surprisingly earthy lapsang, at least compared to what I’m used to. It has a nice smoky flavor, I just wish it was stronger! Next time, I may overleaf a little and see how that goes

I found a cute little tea shop about 5 minutes from my apartment, just nestled in between a liquor store and a grocery store that I’ve somehow always missed. I stopped in and grabbed a few of my favorite flavors to give them a try. I got this tea, a coconut chai, and a lapsang souchong, so fingers crossed at least one of them is tasty!

I steeped this for 4 and a half minutes with milk and it’s turning out a little weak. I think I may have put in too much milk unfortunately. I get a hint of floral that I think is the lady grey, and no lavender as far as I can tell. I’m not rating this yet because I think this may have been a case of human error.

Next time I’ll either try it with no milk OR go all out and make a full-on latte. We’ll see which one calls to me!
