This is another tea that I purchased during a visit to the Miso Market in Cambridge, MA. I saw this box of tea amongst many on shelf and the pricing was high and yet I selected it because it was plum green tea. I knew it would be right for me. I drink lots of green teas and at times it is nice to find one with flavoring adding slight kick to a plain cup of green tea per se.

In retrieving one tea bag from the foil packet one can smell the sweetness of the plum flavoring. So, quickly I take the tea bag and adding the tea water to my cup and leaving it to steep for several minutes. Everything seems light in this tea; the coloring is light plum color and smells of plum and when I take sip of the tea it is plum that I am met with. Nothing is overtly, all seems just right.

I think this is a good cup of tea for this time of year, so instead of heavy desserts (fruit cakes and Marzipan bread or pudding cakes) have a cup of this tea as substitute or to accompany with a slice of your favorite rich, sweet-bread for this time of the season. Happy holidays!

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.
