I'm having a 2 yearold TongMu Guan JinJunMei.... very nice and smooth, though not as fragrant when it was fresh. Nevertheless, still a nice tea to wind down the evening and kickstart the weekend!!

Cheers!!

Just opened a package of Castleton 2020 Second Flush Darjeeling.

If memory serves, this one is about as good as last time I had it, in 2018. Plenty of those fruity muscatel notes.

I have 3 other SF to try, hopefully one of the less expensive ones will be good, too.

Afternoon pick me up with a Ceylon "royal" black tea from Elephant Chateau. This is a lower elevation tea harvested from the Sabaragamuwa region of Sri Lanka, Spring 2020. Brewed 2.5 grams in 85 mL gaiwan using Hojo's method: 30s, flash, flash, flash, 1 min, 5 min; stacking two infusions at a time into a mug.

The tea has a strong rose aroma and tastes like banana, yam and honey. For the final 2 infusions, i added a pinch of sri lankan cinnamon into the gaiwan. Delicious.

Banana, yam, and honey with cinnamon sounds wonderful. Mmm.
