I love having my tea in fine bone china. Makes just about any tea taste better! Lady Londonderry is definitely a perfect afternoon tea! Nice and light, plus the flavors do not over-power the taste of the black tea. I would pair with light afternoon sweets or tasty savory morsels that allow for the delicate tea flavors to still have room to be recognized as a compliment with the chosen fare. Not the best morning tea, as there is no robustness to it. Will leave you wanting more if you’re drinking it to wake up in the morning. However this light tea makes a delicious afternoon treat! Flavors are delicate enough that not much milk or sugar is needed.

Bio

Intergalactic tea traveler. Will stop this side of the Milky Way for piping hot black tea in a fine bone china cup with milk and sugar. Add a tea sandwich and some sweet morsels and I just might stay a while. Music, Photography, Cooking, Art, Spirituality, and the Paranormal are preferred topics of conversation.

Tea Preferences: ALWAYS loose leaf over bagged fannings or god-forbid, dust. I do bag my own loose leaf, and will resort to pre-bagged black or herbal if I have to. Black tea is always taken with milk and sugar, and herbal may escape the dairy and sweet to thrive on it’s own in the cup on occasion.

Allow yourself the possibility of a life without bagged fannings or dust – and open your heart to all that – that is loose leaf. You’ll immediately discover where ALL the flavor has escaped to. It’s like a universe of flavor you never knew existed. ;)
