We had a Fathers Day cook out today with our long time best friends. Hot dogs, hamburgers, Mac and cheese, sweet cherries, blueberries, English Double Devon Cream, cream puffs, home made Cherry Limeades and Pink Lemonade. After the festivities, my friend and I settled down for a cuppa while everyone else watched movies or played Magic the Gathering.

My friend is a former coffee drinker turned tea drinker, who fell for black tea and puerh first but didn’t really like green tea. Since she really wants to drink more types, I have been trying to introduce her to some good teas that are not too astringent but still are on the lighter side of the spectrum.

I chose this one today because I found it to be rather unique. We even tried some blueberries with cream first so she could pick up the creamy nature of the tea. I am happy to say that she really liked this one, and she isn’t afraid to tell me if she doesn’t like a tea! I noticed that the tea even seemed more buttery when I had Townhouse crackers, trying to put out the fire from some spicy habenero cheese. This is so creamy, even milky, that the usual complaints that a non-green drinker might raise just don’t apply here. This has nice body and enough presence to stand up to being drunk with food.

We meant to try it with White Gold honey but forgot! This was all drunk sans additions.

Thank you, Russel and Harney and Sons for sending this for me to try!

Bio

I am a music teacher and homeschooling mom who started drinking loose leaf tea about four years ago! My daughters and I have tea every day, and we are frequently joined by my students or friends for “tea time.” Now my hubby joins us, too. His tastes have evolved from Tetley with milk and sugar to mostly unadorned greens.

We have learned so much history, geography, and culture in this journey.
