8 tasting notes

This is one of the loose leaf options available at our local coffee shop. When I go on a coffee “date,” this is regularly my choice. Normally, floral teas are not my favorite. However, this tea has a light aroma and smooth taste. I like to let it steep for at least four minutes, because of its’ light nature. The second steep is even lighter, which can be a turn off for many. My suggestion is to make this in a pot so that the taste remains as potent as possible.

Great afternoon tea!!

When I say “TeaSource” and “local shop” I thought.. wait a minute, are you in my neighborhood? Ah, well. (TeaSource is based across the river in St. Paul) I remember seeing these little cubes before, but I can’t recall if I ever tried them. Your big-pot/afternoon-tea suggestion sounds like a good one.

Hi! I’m a midwest girl with an immense appetite for tea. As a nurse, I am well aware of the hundreds of pharmaceuticals available to cure diseases and resolve symptoms. Even after all this knowledge, I believe that tea remains the ultimate medication.

Even better than the health benefits tea withholds, I love the taste and the feeling that I endure while sipping on this irreplaceable warm beverage.

Tea holds a great place in my heart as well, because it is the reason my husband and I met. He was working at a local coffee shop as a barista. If my craving for loose leaf had been replaced by another vice on that day – who knows where I would be now. He even pretended to enjoy tea for the first two months we were dating in order to impress me. Oh, how amazing.
