Well…… I met up with the girl who has those cakes that I covet. The ones she has…. is not exactly the same thing as the one I tried :(.
That doesn’t necessarily mean it’s bad tea, just that… I need to try it again before I’m sure.
We met up in a McDonald’s, so there wasn’t any real way of trying the tea out. I am going to give it a shot today afternoon. She was nice enough to let me take a cake with me (while the rest of the tong sits with her) so I can give it an honest shot at home. I appreciate that.
Then again, this is Guhua (autumn) tea. I’m not sure how this will affect the taste. I did brew up a little in the McDonald’s with some hot water, and the brewed leaves were a little red to my liking. Like I said… have to try it again.
Anyway, here are some tea porn. More on this cake later
