Wow! So my daughter told me I could go ahead and open my Mothers’ Day gift, and this as part of it! She picked this up when she was in Budapest a couple of months ago. We are actually at the beach on vacation now and I was soooo ready for a good cuppa after doing the gigantic grocery shopping marathon and fixing supper, all after already having walked a very long way on the beach.

Last year I just bought Twinings Lady Grey at the grocery store and it was pretty good, but this year I really wanted to bring some loose leaf teas with me, especially since I have grown more fond of green tea. I was trying to figure out how to bring end of my Beehouse pots without breaking it when I remembered that one of my students gave me a Republic of Tea travel press that I have never even used. Bingo!

I thought this one would be a bit like Lady Grey and in a way it is, but oooh my, it smells magnificent.
I have no idea what a naranquilla is, but there is a big chunk of something fruity just in the lid. The aroma is so delicious, so genteel. The taste does not disappoint, either. The black tea base is medium bodied and I am thinking it is an Indian tea, though not overly strong. It could be Chinese, though. This comes in a clear jar and you can see the pineapple pieces and flower petals. It is very pretty to look at, and would be lovely to display in he of those porcelain holders at tea time prior to actually making the tea.

I am on the resteep now, and it is still very good. I will definitely be sad to see this one go but I will enjoy drinking it up. Luis is a Hungarian company. This is the second tea I have had from them, and both have been a big thumbs up!

Genteel Lady … that just sounds like you!

Aw, you are so nice! Sometimes I like having fancy tea in china cups, but sometimes I am rolling on the floor growling and wrestling with Sam pup. Do I still get to be genteel? LOL!

Naranjilla nightshade family plant who’s fruit tastes like lime and rhubarb. It has green juice. The plant grows in Equador and other South American Countries.

Thank you, Bonnie! I changed the spelling and looked it up. That must be it. I guess the spelling on the tea tin is Hungarian! It is deeeeelish!

Bonnie

Actually the spelling you have is German.

If one is truly genteel, one can be genteel in hacked-off sweatpants and a holey t-shirt. (Frankly, I prefer it that way :)
