From Bar Harbor Tea Company

It’s Maine in a cup. This wonderful selection delivers you to a Bar Harbor state of mind, regardless of where you may be. The very first sip transports you to our rocky coast, waves crashing against ancient granite rock as the fog rolls gently in; the mist kissing your cold cheek. It delivers a tasty, satisfying, hearty cup. An absolute MUST-have in the collection of any black tea drinker.

1.8 g in 12 oz of water. It sure would be nice to have the accurate amount show up in the box down there.

I chose this tea because I wanted something a bit stronger so I could get three infusions from it in my 12oz tetsubin. Usually I would then pour all of it into my giant 16oz teacup (yes, teacup, it is not a mug, it just happens to be the size of one :P) and add a teaspoon of sugar. Unfortunately my giant teacup has an embarrassing little problem: it stains easily and the stains are impossible to fully remove. I do #teaoftheday posts on instagram and between the stains and the size of the thing I just didn’t want to deal with it. There are only so many angles at which you can get photos of a giant cup like that and not have them all start looking the same!

So, I decided to use a smaller cup. That meant forgoing the sugar I would normally put in because I’m lazy enough not to want to go out to the kitchen every time I re-filled my cup and because there is not enough room on my laptop stand for the sugar bowl. It’s a bit (ok, more than a bit) cluttered over here.

This tea doesn’t need sugar.

Maybe going sugarless with my gaiwan use has finally changed my tastebuds enough that I don’t need sugar. Maybe this tea really is that naturally sweet. Probably it’s a little bit of both. Sweet and mild, a touch of some sort of fruit note and a tiny hint of wood. Like sun-bleached, well weathered wood shingles on a misty spring morning.

This takes me back to that little cottage just beyond Cutler. Hidden waaay out beyond miles of blueberry fields on the edge of a little cove. Civilization was left far behind and it was just the sea, the land, and the sky.

That little cottage setting is just perfect!
