Azzrian was awesome and sent me a bit of this! Thanks so much!!!

Dry – this smelled a little citrusy but also a little like loganberries or currants.

Wet – this smelled more like an herbal-lemon.

It has a deep-rich red/brown color to it that is very vibrant and lovely.

It’s a nice medium strength SWEETER type black tea taste on the tongue. It does have a mouth-watering citrus-berry combo that is almost like a sweet and/or fruity wine-type tingle on your tongue!

Thumbs up! Thanks again Azzrian!

I love this one and would love to send it to my daughter’s boyfriend, but it’s name would actually be considered quite insulting and provoking where he lives! I will probably order some for me, though!

Azzrian

Glad you enjoyed! Wish I could have sent more but was very generous in other trades and now need to re-order more of this! This is one of my household staples for sure. Always a lovely cup!
Ashmanra – I am curious to know more about why this would be insulting. Educate me please? :)

The Loyalists, who are primarily Protestant, call the city Londonderry. The Republicans, who are primarily Catholic, call the city Derry. The city is divided and the Catholics (bf) live on the other side of barbed wire. It was the site of Bloody Sunday years ago. Nearly everyone of all faiths want everyone to just get along, it is really based on politics and not religion, but there is a handful on each side who are more radical and sometimes violent. When my daughter is there, she and the whole family stay in on certain days because of parades that will lead to “trouble.” Several times in the past two years she has been close to a bomb going off or a riot. They introduce her, “This is The American, she is Protestant!” glowingly, because they are not prejudiced. I laughed and told them we are non-denominational, not Protestant, but they said there are only two things – Catholic, and not Catholic! I once called the city Derry to an Irishman I met here at the beach, and right away he wanted to know why I called the city that, and when I explained he told me that he knew all he needed to know about her BF. The Irish man was, by the way, married to a Brit, and told me that as soon as they ran “her lot” out of the country it would be united again. They both laughed!

Oh, and this tea is EXACTLY the flavor profile he loves, which is why I am thinking about buying it, shipping it to me, and repackaging it with another name on it! He wouldn’t mind the name….much…I think…but I just wouldn’t want to wound anyone!

I am SO sorry I never got back to this post. Thank you for explaining all of that! I love learning.

So I have read over this more in depth. So this is based on a city in London specifically? What about people in other cities in England? Do they just not care? I would like to introduce this to someone I will be seeing in St. Louis next week who is from Manchester – am I safe? LOL
Well I would talk to your daughter about this and ask her if it is okay to send him some even if you changed the name what if he asked where he could get it or what it is called? You could end up having to tell anyway!
Great story too! Thank you for sharing that.
