I’ve been asked by a friend of mine to bring a cheesecake tomorrow for lunch and I don’t feel like I have the strength to prepare it…so I have some pressure as I cannot spoil it …she thinks I am a good cheesecake cooker…not sure to be really today.

I am ill today and I was searching for a good starter to push me to make this cake…I need a comforting tea and remembered Nicole sent me this one a long time ago and I never had it …shame on me !
This is a lovely kind of Lady Grey. I have to recognize that I was expecting something stronger especially as it is a blend dedicated to the British Queen and remembering the English teas experience I had I’ve been surprised by the lightness of Diamond Jubilee.
Anyway this medium bodied tea is absolutely pleasant with its notes of lemon mainly and of course grapefruit which gives the blend a touch just a touch of tartness very welcome.
Next time I’ll let it steep a bit longer to see if the tea base can come out a little stronger.

Thank you Nicole for sharing

First, please forgive me for my English and all the grammatical mistakes you’ll find in my posts.
As English isn’t my mother tongue it sometimes makes things more difficult to express cleverly and accurately what I feel.

I was mainly in black flavoured teas, green as well if not bitter.
I’m now drinking much straight teas because my palate is now developed enough to appreciate them .

My favourite brands are : Mariage Frères,Theodor,Butiki Teas,Dammann Frères, Betjeman & Barton.
My ratings are as follow :

100 to 95 : my darlings; always in my cupboard

94 to 90 : Excellent tea, often in my cupboard

89 to 80 : very good tea, a pleasure to drink it

79 to 70: not bad even nice, why not having it sometimes, but well, not so urgent !

69 to 50 : Meh, deceptive or just not for me – but has some qualities

49 to 30 : I just don’t appreciate it

Under 30 : is this tea ?!?!?
