Cruel cruel allergy drugs have taken my sense of taste from me for the last week. Whether it’s the Dymista or the Pulmacort, I know not. All the same, this has kept me away from my “good teas” and relegated me to my “easily replaceable teas” for my for morning pot. But here it is Sunday, and I’m with my teatime companion Pooter http://instagram.com/p/oHY1MignD4/ so I couldn’t resist a large cup of Crimson Horizon.

Some notes are there. The baked bread is…. The light maltiness….So is the smoothness. But the asparagus and a few of the finer notes in this tea are lost to the drugs. I fear I was premature in returning to the tea I love. Rats.

Flavors: Baked Bread, Malt

Preparation
1 tsp 10 OZ / 295 ML
Butiki Teas

Spot or pot, I love a cup!

I learned to drink tea while living in Dublin in the early 80’s, so as you can imagine, I am a hearty brew lover, and take tea with milk and honey. I am trying to expand my horizons with tea….that is why I’m now on Steepster! Joined in January 2014.

Currently loving strong black teas that hold up to milk and honey well. I have a curiosity about keemuns and yunnans, but smoky ones are out. Green and white teas are off my radar, but making little forays into oolong and darjeeling tea. Herbal? So far only cacao tea has gone into regular rotation in my tea routine.

I do like some naturally flavoured teas…almond, vanilla, cardamom, ginger. This seems to be mostly in the cooler months…but mostly I’m an unflavoured tea drinker.

Life is too short for bad tea and bad bread.
