2nd cup of the day. I don’t really have much to say about it, mostly because I was busy fixing breakfast & talking on the phone to my sis (MsWhatsit) while drinking it. It didn’t impress me with amazing flavor, but it also wasn’t bad. Hopefully I’ll have more of an opinion next time.
I’m on my 2nd cup of this blend, & I’m thinking that I need to up the quantity of leaf next time. This is a blend of silver needle, Darjeeling, and Kenyan, created in honor of the engagement of Kate & the Prince.
I drank the first cup while I was making myself breakfast (Brussels Benedict anyone?). I’m having the 2nd cup with breakfast.
A little history: I bought this tea to go with the steepster bookclub, as the title of the tea was perfect for two of the characters in the book. I drank it a few times, & sort of dismissed it, quite honestly, as “ok, but not exciting”.
Today, it is interesting. There are floral & fruity flavors & a certain brightness in there, mostly from the darjeeling I think. I love Kenyan, & the depth, & body of it is in there too. Given the choice, I’d probably just prefer a bold cup of kenyan, but this is a nice change of pace, & a satisfying cup.
Bubble Bath tea #1
Started a cup of this, drank a few sips, then students arrived & it got cold. It has a nice boldness, a brightness, a fruitiness. A little more astringent than I usually like, but not bad!
First cup of the day!
This is a blend of Silver Needle, Darjeeling, & Kenyan teas put together by the London Tea Room (based here in St. Louis) in commemoration of the engagement of Prince William & Kate.
I’m not as into blends as I once was, prefering to enjoy each variety on it’s own merits, but this is a pleasant combo.
