Date: 09/26/ 2012
Company: London Fruit & Herb Company
Tea Name: Green Tea & Blackcurrant
Tea Type/Varietal: Green
Steeping Vessel/Amt. Leaf: Cup / Tea bag
Plucking Season:
Liquor Color: dark bluish purple
Leaf Characteristics:

  1. Steepings

1st Steeping:
Water temperature: 165 Fahrenheit
Time: 3 minutes

Note: This tea has a lovely floral aroma; from the tea bag, to pouring in the hot water into the cup and leaving it to steep as this permeates the air, filling ones’ nostrils pleasantly with fruity aroma.

Upon sips of this tea, one is met with the hibiscus and blackcurrant intermingling with the green tea. Tea has not astringency; instead it is smooth, fine drinking tea; a muscatel true to form.

2nd Steeping:
Water temperature: 160 Fahrenheit
Time: 5+

Note: I am having this tea cooler in my little jug using the same tea bag and perhaps adding another when flavor runs out.

165 °F / 73 °C 5 min, 30 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.
Steepster is offering: Steepster Select and together we’ll explore the world’s most interesting teas; with one free month and the resuming price of $24.95 for the remainder and one is free to cancel at anytime. I have no income and I live on my husband income; so would this be un-wise to do knowing where my life is at right now?
It is something to consider and thank you for the invite. Thank you for Steepster.com’s community of tea drinkers, tasters, reviewers, aficionados and all.
