Staying at a cabin in Big Bear Lake, California, where this tea was on offer. My, it’s been a long time since I’ve had it! I remember it being so different from “normal” tea, almost like it was something I should save for special occasions. Jaded, jaded, jaded. Now it tastes flat but still carries with it the associations from the good old days. Suppose I should be honest and rate it how it tastes to me know rather than how I remember it tasting to me…

I have a soft spot for this too. I have one that I love at my local tea shop (Orange Cookie) which is a much richer loose leaf homage to this one. I love it in the fall and winter!

Grandma introduced me to tea as a kid (lipton with milk and sugar; a bit poured into the saucer to cool it down and then sipped from there), and I’ve never looked back. Still have a slight preference for teas that go well with milk (or even better, cream) and sugar, but since Grandma’s day I’ve branched out to appreciate green and white teas, rooibos and pu erh. Absolutely love Mariage Freres!
