Tea party today was a revisiting of several teas that I have been drinking this week already. My guest started out loving black tea but not caring much for any other kinds. Over time she has grown to like many oolong and green teas, but black tea is still her favorite. That is why her reaction to this tea was especially significant today.

We had started with a Lapsang to cut the sweetness of what we were eating. I poured this as our second tea, she absentmindedly took a sip, then stopped talking and sipped more more in surprise. “This is very good!” she exclaimed.

Yep. That’s exactly what it is. The unfurling pearls put on a lovely show and the tea is fantastic, steep after steep. This is a keeper.

I just tried this today and I LOVE watching the pearls unfurl. This is one of those you have to brew in a clear vessel. They have some other neat teas that I’m tempted to try.

Yes, these have been so good! I definitely need to start looking at putting in an order with them.

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.
