I am having this nice cuppa today thanks to my friend Sandy, who deserted us for the wilds of New Zealand! It’s okay, we get to Skype virtual tea parties now and then and we get her house and dogs! :)
First of all, NOT what I was expecting. I did not read Sandy’s reviews first, so I was looking for a pretty regular breakfast tea. I sipped and thought, “Christmas tea?” But now I realize it is probably lemon I am tasting, very Lady Grey and I haven’t had that in ages! The citrus notes made me think of Christmas tea, which I really only drink near Christmas. A good cuppa, I added sugar but not milk. Twinings recommends a 3 minute steep but perhaps that is for the bags. I didn’t know that when I made this so it got about four minutes and isn’t stewed. Perhaps there is a touch of bergamot? A little….very little…clove? Probably not on that last one, but I am not sure! Good tea! Thank you, Sandy!
