This is indeed Extra Fancy! The leaves are large and have a nice pure tea aroma. This is my “go to” tea when I need a big pot of tea for lots of people of differing tastes to drink with a meal. It has good body, good tea flavor, and you can spice it up as you wish with milk, sugar, cinnamon, some vanilla – anything. Smooth, no bitterness at all. This went with chicken veggie soup at lunch today as we looked out on the yellow and orange leaves and the cloudy gray sky, which made for a very soothing, comforting lunch indeed! This is my hubby’s favorite tea when he drinks caffeinated.

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…
