drank Boston Blend by Harney & Sons
1826 tasting notes

I love the aroma of this tea! It tastes very good even without additions. Tonight it had the unfair trial of being tasted right alongside The de Cigales by Dammann Freres. The Boston won in the aroma category, but the Dammann Freres has more flavor. Granted it is a different flavor tea, but with the same “mood” of cup in my opinion. They are warm contemplative cups. A very good tea with a heavenly aroma.

Oh yes, and Doulton’s comment about cigar tobacco? Yes, yes! The sweetest, good-smelling cherry tobacco in your dearest grandfather’s jacket pocket must have smelled like this. I must confess to sniffing the tin….a lot.

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…
