From Culinary Teas

A visit to London England isn’t complete without a stop at Trafalgar Square, one of England’s most famous attractions. The square is named after the famous naval victory over the French at Trafalgar, off the coast of Spain, in 1805. The naval commander at the head of the British fleet was British national hero Horatio Nelson. Poor Nelson died in the battle and it is his likeness that stands atop the famous column at the centre of the square. On his way to the battle, Nelson was famously quoted as saying, “I have always been a quarter of an hour before my time, and it has made a man of me.” It was with this sentiment in mind that our Master blender created this blend. By blending teas that are known for their bright, full flavors, he definitely succeeded in producing a tea that will help keep you ahead of the clock!

So what kind of tea did he use? Well, the blend starts with a Ceylon tea from estates in the Dimbula region. These teas are known for their floral bouquet, bright coppery color and pleasing astringency. Next is a Kenyan tea from Kiambu. Kenyan teas are known for their bright vitality, and long, full finish. The third tea in the mix is an Assam tea from northern India. Assams are very full-bodied teas and prized for their rich malty character. The final tea added to the blend is a Chinese tea from Anhui province. Chinese black teas have a very distinct, somewhat raw character that really helps to rounds out this blend. The outstanding character and combined nuance of these four teas make this one a real eye-opener. Brew yourself a pot and raise a cup for a tea-toast to Trafalgar, and good old Haratio!

I’m home today – finally, the permanent glass is getting installed in our door after the firemen broke it (remember that saga?)!

I am glad to be home, because I’ve been craving this tea all week! I am so excited for this afternoon pot. And what a pot! Not only did Doulton gift me with this delicious tea, but she sent along this beautiful Beehouse pot!

How did she know I have blue speckles in my countertop!!!??? :)

Anyway, this milk ‘n sugar classic is so good. Smooth. Strong. Tea with a Capital T! It must be blended really well because it tastes uncomplicated – just the epitome of British style tea. And let’s face it, brewing it in a beautiful little pot instead of a fill your own teabag with a saucer on top of the mug like I usually do at home when I am alone (my other pot is a biggie) makes it taste even better :) :) :)

Doulton is amazing! You will love that teapot. The girls and I each have a small one, plus one to spare. My husband shakes his head at four lined up on the countertop, each with a different tea! But you understand, I am sure. (One daughter doesn’t drink tea – gasp! That is why there are only four pots instead of five!)

I totally understand :)

It’s always a good sign when you steep a new tea twice on two different mornings and its equally good both times. This one looks like it’s going to be consistent and reliable. Oh, how we all need that in a tea, in a vehicle, in a friend…

Philosophizing aside, this is really lighter than what most of us consider strong morning tea. Each element is pretty gentle on its own, but good, and just enough rosiness to make it genteel. Recommended for good china and an afternoon chin-wag with a buddy.

Chin. Wag. Theater!!!

As much as I like trying new teas, dipping into a cup of a tried and true stand by is what makes life worth living.
