One of my favorite teas, although I’ve only had it in teabags. When I first tried this tea I couldnt believe their wasnt any “bite” or astringency at all with this tea.Smooth is the only word that comes to mind.Ive yet to overbrew it to a bitter end, and am not sure you can.Im trying my darnest to get my grocer to order this in loose leaf for me.Ive heard twinings isnt making this available in the UK anymore just the US market..the world will be a poorer place if this tea ever dissapears.

Finding all the pleasures and awakenings in Loose Leaf tea late in life, but thankful I did.Theres something very calming about tea, from the bouquet that wafts from the tin to the design the fannings left in the bottom of the cup.Perhaps its not the refinement from the ceremony of preparation, nor the enjoyment of warmth, scent and flavor, but perhaps its the pure and simple pleasure of enjoying something that is elemental,unassuming and humble in its existance.
