So I had this again tonight with one of my close friends after dinner while the men folk (her fiance and my husband) were still enjoying the wine. She loved the aroma of the tea and said it reminded her a little of the mate’s she’s purchased at Teavana, but she likes this because it’s caffeine free (no jitters).

We finished a large pot between us. This time I also noticed the coffee tones this tea leaves on the tongue. The caramel flavoring was a little more prominent in the cup too. Perfect compliment to our dinner and conversation!

Boiling 4 min, 30 sec

I am a tea lover, a wife, and mother of three cats (all rescues). I love to read, and to write. I’m also a BIG fan of the BBC’s Sherlock as well as Doctor Who.

I started drinking and enjoying tea (sure it was bagged Lipton, but it got me started) when my grandmother first introduced me to tea with milk and sugar (and peanut butter and jelly on toast) and my love just grew from there.

I was brought to loose leaf through a trip to Teavana aka my gateway to loose tea. But my taste has expanded along with my love of tea. Sometimes I right about tea on my blog – Gal In The Grey Hat.
