A neighbor has decided she wants to have a tea party, and she wants my youngest daughter to be her “barista”, if that is the correct term. (Daughter suggested geisha and I told her no, no, altogether different!) The neighbor drinks coffee, doesn’t like flavored coffee, but likes flavored creamers. She thought she wanted all black teas and has only had grocery store black and green teas, but I thought that for a GROUP of ladies at a tea party a wide assortment of different teas would be fun.
After hearing her preferences, I decided that Tower of London would be a good starting place. It is similar to Paris, but not as strong. The berry flavor is a little more forward, the honey is sweet, and the bergamot is a bit milder. She liked it! Hey, she drank three cups of it! And she didn’t even sweeten it even though she said she always sweetens everything. I think we may have another convert!
I told her we have only 48 teas to go to taste them all before June 10th. Nooooo problem.
