drank Bohea by Zenjala Tea Company
1770 tasting notes

I found the last little bit of this sample from K S in my box last night as I was sorting and set it aside to have in the morning. I was excited all night thinking about having it for breakfast. Ha! We tea people are strange beings!

This is Sweet Sixteen birthday weekend for youngest so we met big sister and her hubby at the beach for three days last week and then came home to have the weekend with my son, godson, and her best friend all staying for the whole weekend. Middle daughter already lives here. That’s right, bodies everywhere. I haven’t had a den in three days, but that’s okay. It’s fun!

Her friend doesn’t eat much, but she seems to like to try new “adult” things, so I offered her Bohea and gingerbread almond biscotti for breakfast. She thought it sounded good and accepted. I only had two teaspoons left but the package said it resteeps well, so I steeped it, poured it in a pot, and resteeped it, combining that into the pot as well.

The tea still had nice body and flavor. I found it to be barely smokey, if there was any at all it was mainly in the aroma, but it was sweet and good. I drank it plain, she took it with milk and sugar, and we dunked our biscotti happily through the whole pot!

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.
