Another one of the free work teas. I really like this one, almost better than the English breakfast. For anyone who knows how addicted to caffeine I am, that’s surprising. But this is more smooth, more mellow. I think I may enjoy this more than the harsher breakfast in the afternoons to combat the “food coma” from lunch.

The liquor is a dark gold, very lovely. The smell is actually not that strong, which I rather like. You get a burst of the black tea taste at the front of the sip, then a nice easy smoothness comes that I can only describe as “leafy”. Reminds me of a warm forest in early fall. Not too astringent, either. I like this one.

Preparation
185 °F / 85 °C 2 min, 15 sec

Bio

Seattle dweller, photographer, writer, poet, and tea lover. Yes, it’s true. I can’t swim and hate coffee, so where do I live? Seattle! Share with me, people. Where’s the best places to go for tea in Seattle? Much more interesting than talking about my 2 big lazy cats or my love of the beach/boat locks. Or we could chat about tea while I enjoy my cooking…
