the first tin of Bogart we bought in San Fran is gone. I think that’s a record for this household. It’s also the first loose-leaf tea that my husband drank more of than I did. But I got the last cup today :-)
The first tea of 2013 (also my fave tea of 2012)! Glad to be spending a restful New Year’s Day with my husband, and starting it with a mug of Bogie for each of us.
A quiet morning with Bogart and a book is just the thing after a long evening of socializing, eating and drinking. :-)
Mmm, breakfast with Bogie… :-)
I am so glad we made it to Leland. Bogart was everything I imagined! My husband and I shared a pot and both loved it. I bought the large tin ( actually 2 smalls since they were out of large, which is even better for freshness sake.) they were packed full too ( but not to the point of crushing the leaves)
Woke up craving “sweet” and this was a good alternative to a Twinkie for breakfast :) Good basic vanilla black. Might hold its own against Vanilla Comoro, which I know is the gold standard for many of you out there.
I’m drinking this again this morning. It is pleasant enough but I don’t know if I really get the appeal of dragonwell – am I missing something or is this just not a very good example?
This one hasn’t been stored well or wisely—just in a baggie, but even so, it’s got a nice smooth black tea base and medium-strong vanilla flavor. Not cloying, just gentle and pleasant. I suspect it’ll blend well with lots of odds and ends.
Joy to you today. Yeah, even on a Monday.
I increased the rating a little bit this morning. It is very pleasant.
This is a very nice dragonwell tea which I picked up at Leland Tea Company a few months ago. The leaves smell of spinach and it brews up to be a slightly nutty green tea. I much prefer the mellow taste of this dragonwell over something like Sencha (personal preference). Nothing spectacular but certainly great for every day/anytime drinking. Organic is definitely a bonus. If you’re ever in San Francisco you must stop by the Leland Tea Company which has an unpretentious atmosphere and a very friendly staff.
My first experience with this was kind of meh-ish, but I got a newer, fresher sharing sample and like it much, much better. The fruit is a nice addition to the traditional chamomile-lemongrass mix; it gives this nice light herbal a little texture and heft that sticks to your tongue.
Totally tastes like Gingerbread and black tea with a little smoke today. Only have enough for one more cup so I thought I would pass it along to a friend…
A “Touch of Evil?” I think not. It’s a touch of cantaloupe. I like it well enough for a melon flavored tea, but what a misnomer.
I see that Leland is not longer selling this. I wish they would repackage it and rename it as “Mild Melon Morality”.
Spent the rainy afternoon, warm and relaxed, indoors at Leland Tea Co. today. Had this tea with their “Tea Lunch”.
Tiffany’s is hearty, full-bodied and brisk. Very slightly smoky—reminded me of a lighter Irish Breakfast-type tea. I did not detect any floral notes. It seemed like a pretty straightforward black tea. It was dark as coffee and tasted delicious with milk. Very warming.
A perfect cup for a cold day!

Backlogging…finishing up the last little bit of this from my stash today! Infused dark brown and is a nice sturdy tea for the morning. A little smoky a little sweet, and ended slightly smooth.
