2 Tasting Notes

83

As a woman who finds it impossible to say no to anything or anybody, I often find myself pouring out tea and coffee, and handing round biscuits at various community events. Over the years (and I’m ashamed to say it IS years) that I have been cajoled into doing such things I have tasted many bland, insipid teas. I wasn’t moved in any way, when quite out the blue I found a box of Yorkshire Tea within the giant sized Tupperware that I carry from event to event. I spent a good 3 hours making tea before finally drawing breath long enough to taste this for myself. What a beauty! Plain, but comforting. Tea like granny used to make. I have only ever made this on a grand scale and usually use 3 bags, per extra large teapot, it is more than strong enough.
Try this; even outwith community gatherings. You won’t regret it.

Why should you settle for anything insipid?

I reject insipidity.

You should.

Well, I came to this tea quite by accident when I happened to run out whilst we had COMPANY. Mr Porridge ran to the supermarket and returned with this. I know not why he bought it, as embarrassingly enough, his social awareness is practically non-existent. I can only presume it was on ‘special’.
What a pleasant surprise, a real ‘weighty’ (can I use that word? No moderators, so I guess I can..) tea. Full of flavour; good and strong, even when brewed in a mug, not a pot, and given the ‘quick 2 squeeze against the side’ treatment.
Delicious swally. Well worth a go.

I think ‘weighty’ is fair.

A squeezer! I like you already.
