Backlog from Christmas day!

My mom happened to have a spare bag of this at the house and I really wanted a plain black so we fired up her new kettle (I bought her the Cuisinart variable one) and gave it a shot.

It was good for what it was – a bit bland, but I was glad to have something hot to drink. I remember a definite honeyed smell that did carry over slightly into the taste, but overall I really prefer a stronger, maltier black.

Ah well- it makes me happy to be back home with my regular cupboard!

A few of my favorite teas (in no particular order):

*Dessert flavored blacks
*Breakfast blends
*Virtually any black tea (but lapsang/keemun!)
*Dancong oolong
*Sencha
*Dragonwell

When it comes to tea, I feel like the 10th Doctor says it best:

“Tea! That’s all I needed! Good cup of tea! Super-heated infusion of free-radicals and tannin, just the thing for healing the synapses. "
