Welcome May! I’ve dreamed about you all winter long…
As I gaze upon the large, full leaves, I think that imperial is a perfect name for this majestic leaf.
A honeyed aroma rising from my glass teapot reminds me of a dark Oolong tea.
Wow, that is one big leaf!
This tea is processed as a black tea but its enormous leaf, its aroma and its flavor notes remind me of an Oolong tea. Not the tea liquor though, a gorgeous glowing whisky color, reminiscent of a rich second flush Darjeeling.
I’m really enjoying this tea’s unique flavor which reminds me of a dark Oolong with some hints of a China black tea. Quite yummy!
Enjoy your weekend and a warm and happy Mother’s Day to all you Moms out there! Thanks Mom for all of the wonderful things you do.
