drank English Breakfast by Harney & Sons
1856 tasting notes

I had this one for the first time in a while today. After drinking Queen Catherine for frumpled mornings and trying my first light lapsang, I now know that tea is barely, barely smoky, but it is there! It is a sweeter smokiness, though, and I now know that I will HAVE to keep it around for those mornings when I want something a tad lighter than Catherine. This was delicious with a little sugar and the tiniest bit of milk. Sometimes I don’t use the milk at all. Much, MUCH smoother than some of the Keemuns I have tried. Don’t even compare this to Keemun Hao A! It is a completely different taste to me! And I like this one better…..for now. Who knows how my tastebuds will grow up in the coming year? :) I steeped for four minutes, and I think five would have been better.

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…
