drank English Breakfast by Harney & Sons
1878 tasting notes

This is my second morning opting for this one. Sometimes I am on a Queen Catherine streak, sometimes an English Breakfast one. I was so disappointed, but not with my tea! I arrived at work this morning and found myself seated beside a REAL LIVE BRITISH PERSON complete with accent. She was drinking a diet coke. At 8 am. And didn’t bat an eye when I ummm’ed and ahh’ed over my HOT TEA thinking we would stike up a conversation and become tea buddies. Oh Brit! You have betrayed both your countrymen and my hopes!!!

I found out that one of the visiting Brits in my office does like tea. I will have to bring some leaf on Monday.

One of my favorite papers I wrote in school was about the “Coca-Colonization” of Europe after WWII – durn post war Americanization! Booo!

Oh joy! I saw her again today and asked if she likes tea. She said yes! She drinks a whole pot by herself but only during cold weather. Maybe she will accept an invitation to tea time!

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…
