But now, alas I need a break. Who would you go to when you need a break? Something crisp and clean, and light as air, and tender. Tender towards you, your tongue, your senses but still alive and vibrant. Right? ( Or as I say to my poor husband ala' Lebowski style, "Am I wrong? Am I wrong? Am I wrong?" until he answers with the proper line in the script, saying to me, " No,Walter, you're not wrong, you're just an asshole." But this isn't a Lebowski blog so I will move on.)
So you can't go wrong with a good well harvested Silver Needle, I have known that much for a long time, and Teavivre's Bai Han Yin Zhen is a match to my need.
Little tiny buds and tips, so pretty and delicate. Sweet and slippery on my tongue, a mildly sensual lingering after-taste. A deep breath from me in perfect unison with the room.
Cannot tell you, dear reader how long this will last, how many steeps, but I will certainly know by days end. I am seeing this tea again and again and I might even make it eggs if it wants me to. I'm in love.
