I purchased this tea (and a few others!) while visiting my son in Seattle. The Queen Mary Tea Room is just a few steps away from their little shop full of teas and other tea items including bone china cups. This tea smells like summer…..peach and apricot come through for sure. When brewed, the flavor is very nice and the fruit flavors do not overpower the black tea. A second brew was ok but definitely not as flavorful as the first. I’m always searching for a nice apricot tea and have been enjoying Della Terra Apricot Carousel (which they will no longer be blending). As with all teas I try, I will need to have a couple more servings before deciding whether to buy more.

Preparation

Bio

I love tea! I started drinking tea in the morning in high school after finding it delightful to put the kettle on first thing and savor that hot cuppa, thanks to my Dutch grandmother. Mostly I drank black and green teas in bags until about 3 years ago when my daughter bought me a steeper from Teavana, making loose tea my favorite. My favorite brands are Harney & Sons, Lupicia, and Stash loose leaf. I would have to say that I am addicted to Harney’s Paris!
Besides drinking several cups of tea per day, I love to hike, do Zumba, knit, read, and dream up trip ideas on my iPad.
