  1. Steepings

1st Steeping:

The directions say to use one tea bag per cup of tea made. Using freshly drawn water I fill a small pan and let it boil fully. I take one tea bag and place this in my cup and when water is just starting to boil, I lower the fire and wait for the water to settle and pour some of the water into my cup. I leave it to steep for a few minutes.

This is a special blend of carefully chosen teas from Ceylon Assam Darjeeling and scented with oil of bergamot; a citrus fruit grown in the Mediterranean and sprayed on the leaves after manufacturing.

This tea brews a lovely malt color, it is not brightly as Ceylon teas alone, this is slightly brownish red and teas aroma has hints of roasted malt throughout. It is creamy in texture and the oil of bergamot is not prevalent; it is very mild. Taste is complex; it is malt tea which I like and not flowery as Darjeeling teas tend to be.

Overall, this tea is robust and malty since the tea’s liquor is more reddish than brown. I would think that I am drinking a cup of Assam/Ceylon tea.

Preparation
195 °F / 90 °C 3 min, 15 sec

I enjoy a lovely cup of tea most days,and I like sharing my tea experiences with the world. I have been doing this for most of two years now.

I am at that thresh hold, unsure of how to proceed and why. My blog page is there for viewing and I am thankful for the experience as I have been allowed. Thank you everyone, sorry to have failed by not writing a tea book. I simply could not do it. I simply could not.
