2513 Tasting Notes

This is a very smooth, very round cup of tea. There is a strong honey aroma and taste. A Southern Season carries this tea on their “Daily Teas” list, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t special! This tea is also the March 2010 monthly special along with Lung Ching Dragonwell, so they are both a great bargain right now.

My husband loves the Decaf Orange Pekoe I buy for him when I go out of town – no decent tea stores in our town! – but since I needed an online source I tried this one. Amazingly, he liked it, and unlike Mikey who will eat anything, my hubster is pretty picky. He couldn’t tell the difference between this one and the slightly more expensive one I buy loose. I am relieved to have a source for his night-time tea! It is mild and round as I like my Ceylons to be, no bitterness, didn’t notice any astringency which is a big plus since my family tends to dislike astringent teas, and it goes well with a light snack. I drink it with just a wee bit of sugar, hubby and DD add milk and LOTS of sugar but that is how they drink all their teas!

I love this tea! People who smell it want to try a cup, even if they aren’t tea lovers. Soothing, warm vanilla flavor makes this my comforting cup. I drink this when I want a tea that feels elegant.

Bio

I am a music teacher, tutor, and former homeschool mom (25 years!) who started drinking loose leaf tea about twelve 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.

I am also reviewing for Sororitea Sisters now!

My avatar is a mole in a teacup! Long story…
