  1. Steepings

1st Steeping:

Bring water to boil in a small pan to about 180 Fahrenheit in temperature, I take one tea bag and place this in my cup and then pour the water into my cup and leave to steep for five minutes.

This teas aroma is so much that it fills the room with sweet currants. Infusing the air around you and making you want to simply inhale and when I do have a sip of this tea it is as my nostrils were to have been dictating; sweetness and warmth is in the air.

This is good for you tea: The London Fruit & Herb Company prides itself in creating great tasting blends. Their unique process includes 20 fruit flavour infusions so that no part of the tea is absent of flavor. What you taste and is met with first sip is the same throughout the drinking experience.

This tea can be strong (at times reminding me of that purple drink that children loved to drink) it is not that, this is good tea and can be made lighter or stronger. This is not a tea that I would indulge in daily but on rare occasions. Leave in your cupboard in the back and forget about it; and find it one day by accident and fix yourself a cup of hot tea or it is even better served as iced tea.

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.
