Advent calendar [15/24]
I was super excited to find another flavoured white in my possession this morning. I’m starting to really like these. I must admit I sampled some of the dried pineapple out of the tin. Very nice!
I got out my new cast iron cups and my trusty old cast iron tea pot. It’s nice not having to sip out of the glass bowls we usually use for mise en place before we cook. That’s kind of where my excitement ended. This tea had a beautiful start in the mouth. It was very delicate and floral. The end of the sip was where I had an issue. All of a sudden, that lovely floral sip turned into a mouthful of sweet sugary syrup. The good news is that this endnote of sweetness disappeared after a half hour. When I drank it in my car, it was definitely gone.
I may try some different steeping and temperature parameters. Perhaps I’m just going to prefer a less flavoured white.
Flavors: Floral, Melon, Pineapple, Sweet
