As with anything in life, once you’ve experienced the high end of something, the everyday version becomes less tolerable. It happened to me here in Mexico. Now that I have enjoyed fresh corn tortillas and Monterrey’s carne, other tacos just don’t compare.
Now it’s happened to me with tea. I had bought myself a Kusmi Tea sampler for a Christmas present and I discovered what wonderful tea tastes like. A few months later, my tea consumed, I had to go back to my grocery store tea. My previous favorite jasmine tea I drank daily now tastes like dusty water. Grocery store tea is now a thing of the past.
My Kusmi Tea is now in transit, along with two types from Marriage Freres Tea to try. The beginning of my tea pursuit has begun.
