Working through several steeps on this cold and rainy afternoon, it is clear that this is becoming the “cup-a-soup” of my tea cupboard. It is rich and savory, to the point where it can sometimes feel like I’m drinking gravy or a hearty broth. I’m not in the mood for this style of tea very often, but when I am it really hits the spot.

This sounds really interesting, but I think the name would intimidate me a little!

Chicago Tea Garden has a number of good teas and does sample sizes – might be worth a look!

I just love the name!

This is one of my favorites by CTG. I never made the broth connection, but there is a hearty briny taste. I was calling this “shark breath” instead of camel because I picked up a little algae and kelp too. Good stuff!

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!
