drank Wuyi Cassia by Harney & Sons
1826 tasting notes

Thanks to Doodleology, there was a tin of this in my mailbox today! Tea party was two days late this week because of a very full schedule, so this worked out well. The tea is fairly light in color, but the aroma is dark dark! It is a scent I associate with toasted walnuts, and one of my favorite characteristics to find in a oolong. At first I just wasn’t getting any reason for having cassia in the name, but after eating some seriously sweet goodies I took a sip and said, “There it is!”

The contrast now made me pick up a very light and delicate spicy flavor, certainly not as strong as actual cinnamon in the tea, just a hint, a mere breath, of spicy note. Very good! Thank you, Doodleology!

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…
