drank Panyang Congou by Harney & Sons
1856 tasting notes

This is one of our first truly chilly mornings. There was a fire already roaring when I got up and the house is quiet because this is the last weekend before Sandy returns to her house so my girls were having one last sleepover bash with her dogs. Oh my, they are going to miss that!

I am also reading Snuff, the new book by Terry Pratchett, and Vimes just had to mention bacon sandwiches again, so being impressionable as I am, guess what I am having for breakfast? I had one unopened sample of this tea and thought it would be a perfect accompaniment.

The leaves smell awesome – pure tea plus a fruity scent. The tea itself is as I remembered – honeyed just a little, a little yummy fruity taste, sweet and smooth, but not as hefty as Harney’s English Breakfast. I am glad I have had this, as that fruity taste is beckoning and insisting that I put this on my next order. We shall see what happens as I make my way through this pot…

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…
