My daughter and son-in-law came to celebrate Mother’s Day early with me today. My gift was this tea plus one other from Colonial Williamsburg, and a sugar cone! Our local German grocery sells them as Zucker Huts, which is really fun to say.

My eldest daughter doesn’t really care for black tea, but she loves green tea, white tea, and matcha, as well as some puerh tea. She likes coffee, so I thought this one might appeal to her. I liked it – it is a mild black tea with light smoke flavor though heavier smoke aroma. There is a clear, light, sweetness to the base which seems very like – if not the same as – the base for their Lapsang. Her husband does like smoky tea at all, but she liked it and had two cups with me. This was good, and was definitely a lighter Bohea than the other two I have tried.

I tried both teas, but I don’t know if I can bring myself to unwrap that lovely sugar cone in the blue paper!

I love sugar cones! I used to work at Busch Gardens, Williamsburg when I was a teenager. I owe a great deal of my love of history to hanging out in Colonial Williamsburg on my days off.

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.
