Twice this week I have had the opportunity to share tea with friends.
The cups are upside down because we haven't started making the tea.
How wonderful to sit in the out of doors and share our love of tea.
For both opportunities I shared the same tea.
I wasn't sure how it would steep and taste coming from my little teapot,
but it was quite good.
I shared a Darjeeling tea called Puttabong Moondrops First Flush 2014.
Sounds kind of technical doesn't it?
Puttabong is the farm or estate it came from in India.
Moondrops is the name they gave it.
First Flush 2014 was the first picking in the Spring of 2014.
I tend to like the Second Flush better for a more robust tea,
but drinking moondrops fascinated me and I just couldn't resist
buying it when I knew it was being picked.
I mentioned moondrops last year, it is like drinking stars from the sky
on a clear evening with a gentle breeze blowing.
Have you enjoyed sipping something recently that reminded you
of a delightful starlit evening with a gentle breeze?
