From PureAromaTea

English Afternoon Tea is full of delicate flavour. It’s the perfect accompaniment to a light afternoon snack. Darjeeling, The Champagne of Teas, plus fine African and Sri Lankan teas for extra flavour, makes a fine traditional English blend.

To enjoy at its best put one teaspoon per person in a warmed pot and add fresh, boiling water. Allow to brew for 4 minutes then strain into cups or mugs. Our English Afternoon is probably best drunk with a little milk/sugar, but try it with a slice of lemon if you prefer.

sipdown (223) I promise it won’t just be sipdowns today but i DO have lots to drink up if i’m going to reach my goal for this weekend. The rest of this is off to my tea sister so that she gets a chance to drink this as well. Part of the fun of having similar tastes is that it makes sharing that much more fun :) I’d order this again if i needed a decent black brew :)

Terri HarpLady

Plus having a tea sister is just SO awesome!

Sil

haha i agree! :)

Another tea from Sil. I thought this would be a sipdown, but there is still enough left for one more cup, so I put that last bit in my ‘sipdown’ box, which I started awhile back. Any tea that only has enough left for a cup, or maybe a 16 oz pot, is getting dropped in there. There are only about 5 of them right now, waiting to be picked off one by one, or maybe for my next Sipdown Extravaganza (I haven’t had one of those in awhile).

I met with a bride & groom a little while ago, booking & planning their wedding for next September. They paid their deposit using my Paypal swiper! So now I have a little money in my PlayPal account! I’ll let it sit there for now, & hopefully it will build up by the end of the month for some awesome tea orders! Meanwhile, I’ll keep sipping!

Sil

I think we may have decided to tie the knot on sep 19 after all.

Terri HarpLady

sigh…except I won’t be able to come play :(
The wedding I booked today is on sept 20th

Sil

haha well i’ll keep you posted. I’m beginning to think eloping is looking really good..

Terri HarpLady

You could always come get married in St. L!

Sil

i think we’ll likely get hitched here in toronto. Our friend is getting married in July in Cape Breton on a friday which means summer high season wedding 1400 just for our flights. As such, i doubt we’ll be going even if ian is supposed to be a groomsman. He has school exams that week as well. So we’ll likely stick to home base as much as possible but then i’d like to take 2 weeks off to travel – though that might have to wait until ian has school break heh

Terri HarpLady

When does Ian graduate?

Sil

oh god…seems like forever from now. I think? he’s got another year and a bit? if we were to get married in september, he has a week break in October that we could take advantage of for a bit of travelling…maybe stay in the US and do a road trip sort of deal until he graduates and then do a 2 week europe sort of trip as a graduation present for him :)

Terri HarpLady

Cool!!!
I think you guys travel more than anybody I know :)

I’m rotating between this and the English and Irish Breakfast blends, but never managing to make the definitive tasting note on any. I think this might be my favourite, though I feel I should be loyal to the Darjeeling-less blends (which the Irish definitely is, and I’m guessing the English too). I make them all with two teaspoons for a cup about 300 ml, and all are nice and strong, round, and astringent enough to know you’re drinking a strong black without taking your mouth off. None is too round either, and someday I’m going to figure out what I mean by too round so it’s remotely comprehensible to others.

My wonderful tea-drinking day yesterday started off with the best cup of this. Good stuff!

Round is perfectly comprehensible, I know exactly what you mean!

Hallieod

Good! But do you know what I mean by too round? I’m going to have to make a conscious decision to look out for it while drinking strong blacks! Maybe Assams…?

cteresa

I am admittedly a bit prejudiced against Assams (though I love a couple) and even more shockingly, against Darjeelings. I think I know what you mean about not too round a black a tea though. But Assam, is tricky. I have been curious about Nepal teas, and thanks to Angrboda, got one waiting for me to try it. Ceylon, good ones might be it as well, dunno. And I got to get more of that portuguese tea I used for the chai, it is really quite good!

Hallieod

I’m not sure it’s the Assam in a blend that is making the tea seem too round to me, but I’m going to have a think and see if I can remember which blend I had recently that struck me that way. I’m happy enough to keep my distance from Darjeelings – the one I got from Palais des Thés is quite nice, but I’d hate to find out that the really expensive ones actually are really good. For now, I can just breeze on by the Darjeelings in tea websites and not worry about getting caught by the MUST HAVE bug. :P I’m expanding on your random Ceylon sampling, and will soon have three to compare! And that Portuguese tea was lovely in the chai!

cteresa

Oh, I think maybe the opposite: Assam is not round to me, or not really. When i think of round teas, I think of chinese teas, no sharpness, all smooth.

LOL about the fear of finding the real expensive ones are really good, that is a problem indeed – otoh if I had never had good silver needle tea (or theodor´s milky oolong) I would never considering buying those but they were so good, my opinion of what tea is has improved by having really good teas..
