Another Traveling Tea Box tea!

I think it tastes like beer-tea! Sorta like some darjeelings taste like wine tea…this tastes like beer tea. Slighty lemony beer tea. It’s not exactly unpleasant, but let’s just say I’m glad it was just enough for tonight’s after dinner pot of tea.

Preparation
205 °F / 96 °C 4 min, 0 sec

At first I too felt that it was just enough. I was not pleased with the purchase and I resigned the tea to the deep dark crevice of the back of my cupboard. Some time past and I thought it would be advantageous for me to give this tea another chance. I brought this tea with me to Haiti…why? Not sure, but I am glad that I did. Have you ever met someone and not hit it off? To only meet up once again and thoroughly enjoy their company…well, this tea is a true friend. It is patient and waits for the right time for enjoyment. Give it another chance when time permits and the sun is shining through the cold window pane…take a sip, then another, you will become friends I am sure.

Haha, I’m with you Pete. I stuffed this towards the back of my cupboard, errr, cardboard box.

PeteG – me ‘n this tea are just two ships that passed in the night – I only had 2 teaspoons to try :) But Jackee Muntz and Thomas Sampson are trying to get to my house through the snow and I hope they will become good friends of mine! I have terrible imaginings that they are going to be boxing in my tea cabinet and cause a ruckus! Maybe I should put them next to the rooibos! I am also worried about how Florence and Marco Polo are going to react when these two hunks of men arrive in the cabinet! They are very refined creatures and I hope they don’t get all snobby and make them feel unwelcome!

Ricky

I think they have to be on opposite sides of the cabinet. Far away from each other. Jackee and Thomas will rip Florence and Marco Polo into shreds,

Ricky – that’s a great idea!!!! I will put lots of no nonsense Upton solid citizen teas between them to keep the peace. I may have to build a little tea villa for Marco Polo and Florence!

I ♥ NewYorkCiTEA

With a garden. I’m sure Florence would like a garden. Flowers perhaps.

Ricky

Oh those poor citizens =(

Don’t forget a river, Thomas and Jackiee can’t swim, don’t worry!

Next time I try this, I shall need to watch for essence of beer.

Bio

I love to cook, bake, read, paint, knit, do needlework, and garden. I need my coffee, but I LOVE my tea. I work at an Art School, and attend a large public university doing post-bac work (my BA is in English). I’m interested in the liminal spaces between art and craft, the academic and the practical, the individual and community, and the old and the new. I’m currently exploring these ideas through the disciplines of education, literature, history, and psychology.

I enjoy writing tasting notes, but have decided not to numerically rate teas as of 9/14/10. For an explanation, see my looooong tasting note about Mountain Malt from the Simple Leaf.

My favorites:
Chinese black teas
A good “milk and sugar” English style black
Earl Grey (classic, and in all variations!)
Vanilla teas (classic, and in all variations!)
Jasmine, Rose, Violet and other froofy, flowery teas!
An Occasional Oolong
Flavored Rooibos
Herbal Tisanes
