I’m not such a big fan of blending Ceylon, Assam, and Darjeeling teas. I feel it muddies the true signature too much of each. Or perhaps I’m just a big fan of Ceylon. This is a nice full-bodied black tea, however it’s a ways down on my list when it comes to my first morning cup grab, or a nice afternoon lift. I keep thinking if I add some other tea to the mix my feelings about this one might change, but fear that the inherent issue is with the actual blend itself. Who knows, maybe the blend may grow on me over time.

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. ;)
