I’m currently sipping on my 2nd infusion of this tea, while trying to make the ever-so-challenging woman’s decision to get her long hair cut short. Just agony, I say. Agony.

Anyways, this tea both soothes and energizes while I fight to come to a decision… on the hair, not the tea. The tea is much easier.

This is a great tea for any day or everyday. I can see this tea being pleasing to a wide audience. With my first sip the creamy smoothness jumped out at me and I immediately decided I wanted to have it iced. Great decision that was.

2nd infusion is also very flavorful, with no bitterness or astringency. The lemon for me just creates a nice balance, and does not give a strong citrus tone. The cream is very welcome, and reminds me a little bit of my French Earl Grey.

I used 1 tsp for 8-10 oz. This created a nice medium caramel color, and light to medium body. I might try adding a little more tea and steep longer next time to intensify some of the more subtle flavors. Very enjoyable none the less.

Bio

A hot pot of tea was always a staple in my childhood. Mom used to get these wonderful herbal teas that were just so comforting.

Leaving home, I would always enjoys the gifts of tea from my mom, but could never find the same satisfying experiences from Celestial Seasoning and similar brands. I lost my way from tea for many years.

Recently a friend introduced me to Teavana loose teas. What a treat and re-awakening of my love for tea. Now I can’t get enough of this new “world of tea”. What a fun journey to embark on!
