Black tea with a strong raspberry accompaniment. Delicious. We feature this tea unsweetened and our store customers love the taste!

Yesterday I picked this tea to drink because I hadn’t had it in awhile and it was a fave of mine before. I notice I’ve only logged it once, I think I was drinking during The Great Unlogged Period and I haven’t had it since. Wow.

So sometimes you remember really liking a tea then you don’t have it for awhile and when you do again, that isn’t the case. That is, you might still like but not as omg so good much. That totally wasn’t the case with this tea. I thoroughly enjoyed my mugs of it yesterday as much I used to.

Coming up next: I had Harney & Sons’ Ginger Peach black tea for the first time this morning! Yum!

That’s a long second steep – did you forget about it? ;)

lol Nope. I found a bit before Christmas that, for me, just leaving black teas steeping 20+ mins somehow gives a fuller flavored 2nd steep (for those blacks that do 2nd steep okay) than just adding several minutes to the original steep time. Idk why this is so. But it works for me. lol So I’ve just been putting them on to steep, noting when 20 mins is from that time, and coming back sometime after the 20 mins is up. For some teas, it’s a noticeable difference to me and for others, not as much. It’s just become common practice.

Okay, that was waaay too long an explanation. The first time I did it though, it was an accident. And I was just really pleased with the results. So I tried it again with the same tea the next time I made it. Then other teas. Also, since it’s a second steep, the black teas do to get bitter with the lengthy time.
