Afternoon cup of tea on this beautiful fall day. The weather this weekend has been wonderful. Yesterday we went to the farmer’s market and ran a bunch of errands. We also went to the animal shelter to drop off some food and almost left with a new kitten, oops. He was gray and just so darn cute. I left it up to my fiancee, since he is the only boy in a housefull of all girls and I know he wants a male cat. He decided to wait since we foster kittens all the time, and that way you can really get to know their personalities. It’s nice and sunshiney here today, and we enjoyed a nice walk around the neighborhood with the dogs. I’m going to curl up on the couch to finish my library book that’s due tomorrow and then work on the homework that I’ve been putting off all weekend. I don’t regret it, though, because the fiancee’s days off are few and far between, so it was very nice yesterday to have him to myself for the whole day!

This tea is ok, just very average really. It has more of an earthy/smokey taste to it, and I prefer my black teas to be just strong and sweetly malty. Not terrible at all, but I doubt that I would actually purchase any of this for my house!

-Standard teabag with a tag.
-Teabag smells faintly of malty black tea. Tea liquor aroma is earthy with a hint of maltiness.
-Tea liquor is a thick dark brown color.
-Lightly smokey flavor with a malty finish. Soft and somewhat sweet black tea aftertaste.
-Best with milk and sweetener.
-Fair tea. A standard afternoon tea with a smokey/earthy note.

Bio

Just a Southern girl who loves sunshine, little dogs and all things tea!

I love animals and animal rescue. We have a rescued Chihuahua, Greyhound, Siamese and 2 Tabbies. We also foster kittens for the local humane society.

My favorite teas are sweet and malty black teas but I try to branch out and taste them all. :)
