drank Lover's Leap by Harney & Sons
1855 tasting notes

This was really not what I expected. When I opened the lid of the pot to take out the infusing basket, I had to ask if they had used the right leaves. These leaves looked positively green! It looked very much like some of the darjeelings I have made. Then I thought we had understeeped, because the tea was so light in color. But no, this is just the color it should be. I looked it up on their website. And indeed, any longer and it would have been bitter. There is a touch of astringency and definitely hints of lemon in the cup as the company describes. I started out
preferring Ceylons, but my tastes have changed and I am not overly thrilled with this tea at the moment. Maybe it will be just the taste for one hot day, or perhaps it will be wonderful as a cold
brew iced tea.

Lemon?! I didn’t get that at all… Well, I think mine was from MTC. I wonder if they take it from the same estate

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…
