Tea of the day: White Licorice by Golden Moon Tea
Description: Rare white tea leaves perfumed with a deep, far-eastern essence of licorice. Intimately mingled with star anise to produce and intriguing and sweet bouquet
Smells exactly like black licorice candy, sharp and sweet
Liquor is light gold in the cup
Smells just the same steeped.
Tea is lightly sweet, lovely licorice flavor and lingering aftertaste, very drinkable. Needs no sugar
Tea Rating: 5/5
Bit brain dead today, so my only thought is thus:
You, lovely person reading this blog, are wonderful. Chin up and give yourself the credit you deserve!
I like pouring your tea, lifting
the heavy pot, and tipping it up,
so the fragrant liquid streams in your china cup.
Or when you’re away, or at work,
I like to think of your cupped hands as you sip,
as you sip, of the faint half-smile of your lips.
I like the questions – sugar? – milk? –
and the answers I don’t know by heart, yet,
for I see your soul in your eyes, and I forget.
Jasmine, Gunpowder, Assam, Earl Grey, Ceylon,
I love tea’s names. Which tea would you like? I say
but it’s any tea for you, please, any time of day,
