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.
