This is a household favorite. There’s nothing glaringly special about this tea, but we go back to it again and again. It smells lovely and has a mild, unobtrusive taste. The flavor is lost under sugar or milk and best enjoyed on its own. I drink it by the pot. But, pressed to say what it tastes like, I can’t say. A nice blend that tastes like tea? It’s not sharp or acidic or smokey. It doesn’t need doctoring. I’ve yet to oversteep it. It’s nothing ‘special’ but yet we drink it all the time, even hot with dinner. This is one I’ll always keep around.

Bio

Here are the things I drink: Tea, water, coffee, beer, whiskey, wine.

I’ve been drinking tea since I was a little girl, but only recently began learning about tea and drinking loose leaf.

I prefer unflavored tea to flavored, tea leaves to tisanes, but I’m not inflexible and will try nearly anything.

I’m still learning, so thank you in advance for your patience and your help.

Also, I had to come up with a way to quantify my ratings because I was being really inconsistent:

100-90: Delicious, must keep in stock.

89-80: Excellent, a definite reorder.

79-70: Good, an occasional reorder.

69-50: Pleasant, but it was a one night stand.

49-30: Not good, but drinkable.

29-20: Bad, but I finished the cup.

19-10: Terrible. Couldn’t finish a cup.

10 and below: Undrinkable, requires mouthwash and counseling.
