drank Golden Wheat Head by Red Leaf Tea
1626 tasting notes

These lovely leaves came today via Nicole express, and I have been looking forward to giving them a try.

First of all, the dry leaves are absolutely fascinating—braided/rolled into tiny little spirals like mini-rotini.

I was especially cautious on time and temp. Stayed right with it, set a timer, and didn’t let myself get distracted (now there’s an accomplishment). And for my labors, I got a beautifully light, sweet, chamomile-colored cup that tastes like a healthy summer farm: sweet hay, fresh bread, corn stalks.

This is a great summer evening tea.

Bio

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.
