One of my favorites, and a morning standard. This tea has a medium robustness to it. Steeped a little longer than 5 minutes and it might just pass for a semi-strong morning tea. It’s a beautiful blend of black teas that taste delightfully classy and refined. Can hold up to medium types of sweet and savory dishes without getting lost in the strong flavors of the food. Can turn bitter if steeped to long, timing is crucial. Although not needed, this tea gets an aesthetic boost when nurtured in a beautiful cup.

I’ve purchased this tea a few times at 8oz each. You can get a fabulous deal at www.jollygoodtea.com It’s where I buy all of my metropolitan teas. I’ve been buying from her for a few years now.

Are all the metro teas in bags? Just curious.

Marie

Oh no! :) Their primary line is all loose leaf teas, however they have a smaller line that is bagged. But everything I buy from them is loose leaf. They’re a wholesale company, so you’ll need to go through a retailer to get their teas. That’s why I go through www.jollygoodtea.com She has great deals if you find a tea that you like and you want to buy it in bulk.

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. ;)
