Wow! My five hundredth tasting note! I didn’t realize it was when I was making my tea this morning, but I think I would have chosen this as the tea to have that honor. And it was particularly good this morning. It is a rather quiet morning with son in summer classes, middle daughter volunteering for the summer reading program at the library, and no one left at home but youngest daughter and Sandy’s dogs, all of whom wanted a plate of cheese cubes. Cheese is so perfect with black tea, as it seems to bring out the natural sweetness of the tea more. This English Breakfast is my favorite. It is pure keemun and has just the right balance of strength and smoothness, cocoa goodness and tea flavor. It was delightful with cheese toast smeared with a bit of mustard.
