When I ordered my stand-by morning tea, Yunnan Gold,
from Floating Leaves not too long ago;
they included a sample package of Da Hong Pao oolong.
Here is their description of this wonderful tea:
"This Da Hong Pao has been roasted four times and the last roast was finished in 2016. You can find it at Floating Leaves, here.
The aroma has chocolate and ripe fruit notes. The broth is full bodied, heavy and warming. The aftertaste is strong and lingers for a long time in the throat. We love this tea for winter time drinking."
That was exactly what it was, as it is fully gone now.
This is a tea I will for sure be ordering soon.
I would say it is not only a tea for winter,
but all year long.
The flavor lingers in my mind.
In the picture you will see my Marmalady's serving mat and
a wonderful teapot made by Richard Brandt, a local potter.
Don't you just love that bunny on the top?
