You may remember a few blogs ago in my review of last year that I bought a tablet of tea in Glastonbury that turned out to be quite ghastly ( in case you don't, it's about half way down this blog here ). From the same basket of tea that was sitting on the shop counter, I bought the little sachet pictured below. One fine day a couple of weeks ago, I felt brave enough to open the sachet and brew up the mystery herb, which I'm assured was tea.
Well here's what was inside - dried green stuff
Into the pot with it and pour on some boiling water.
Wait a few minutes for it to brew . Tum te tum te tum.
And pour. It doesn't look to be the strongest cuppa in the world.
A moment of contemplation while I consider the potential effects of the unknown brew.
Actually it was quite nice. Light with just a hint of jasmine about it (jasmine tea itself I find just a bit overpowering on the jasmine front). No ill effects, curious visions and I can report that I am still alive several weeks later.
When I came to empty out the pot I found that it contained almost complete tea leaves, which made cleaning out the pot easier than expected.
