I drink my teas from a glass Bodum yo-yo tea cup, which shows the liquid off to fine effect. Through the glass this tea actually looks like a glass of red wine. There are notes of grape, cherry, some light spice and a slight cabernet fragrance. The assam tea used has a strong bitterness and astringency that I would normally dislike, but in this case it seems to go well with the red wine taste which is stronger in the taste than in the fragrance. It is a very slow sipper, partially because of the dryness and bitterness. On the whole, I like their champagne infused white tea better, but this has a nice pungency that I also enjoy.

I really like that yo-yo cup, though I don’t get why it’s called a yo-yo from the picture. It looks super cool. I don’t know why I’m trying to kid myself into thinking that I’m not going end up getting one eventually.

I’m a suddenly enthusiastic tea aficionado. I had no idea how varied and delicious teas could be. Also I’m a dairy-free vegetarian, so if you see me say “cream” or “milk” it means soy milk or soy cream.
