Took some wise advice and lightened up considerably on the leaf and the steep time—just a couple of minutes—and this one is much better now.

I still can’t pick out any individual fruit/flower/spice flavors, it just tastes “purple,” but now it’s a clean grapey purple instead of bitter, muddy purple.

If it tastes like Dimetapp, I must get some.

Don’t laugh … there might be some similarities …

Somebody asked me once when I became a tea junkie; I think it dates back to college when I needed caffeine for a 7 a.m. class but chose not to do coffee. My favorite teapot is a medium-sized Brown Betty given to me by my Mema; the painted flowers are chipping off, but the size and feel is perfect. I rejoice when I get a morning to brew a pot of loose tea starting with a kettle; not a bag and a hot pot.
