drank Queen Catherine by Harney & Sons
1858 tasting notes

Overslept because I didn’t sleep well last night. Muscles already sore from coughing. Nose and ears still stuffed with cotton. Nauseated from coughing fit. Sneezing fit. Main household toilet broken and needs parts and I have guests coming Thursday so I have to drag myself out to buy the parts. Out of home made bread AND English muffins for breakfast.

I NEED THE QUEEN!

And now I feel much better. I found some bagels and smeared them liberally with Nutella – now there’s a good start. Accompanied by a good, stout cup of the Queen, this was very fortifying. Even with all that Nutella I could taste the tea, yet it was smooth and sweet.

A long time ago, I had resigned myself to the notion that I would probably always put milk and sugar in breakfast blends. Now I can’t imagine why I thought that, as this was perfect just the way it was.
Onward to face the day! (It helps that I am pretty sure that two tea orders are coming today. You may hear whining later on if they don’t get here.)

I must always have the Queen in my cupboard for emergencies such as these! :)

Bio

I am a music teacher and homeschooling mom who started drinking loose leaf tea about five 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 and oolongs.

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

My avatar is a mole in a teacup! Long story…
