I just came back from a high tea ornament exchange party and this was one of the few black teas being served.
It was ho hum, but it was brewed rather weak so that might be why. I dunno it smelled like vanilla but other than that it would just watered down black tea with no interest to it at all.

I remember when I LOVED this tea, hee. That was so long ago. It’s crazy how far I’ve come. But I’ll always be grateful it got me into dessert teas in the first place!

Yeah, I didn’t get a lot out of it, but I would have brewed it differently too, I’m not thrifty when it comes to tea that is in tea bags. You need more of them to get the strength.

Bio

My passion for tea started at a very young age, thanks to my grandmothers beautiful china tea cup collection. I use to brew Tetley’s or whatever version of Orange Pekoe she had in the cupboard and pick out my favourite tea cup to use. It wasn’t until I was in my late teens that I really started to develop a passion for it. My town had the Urban Tea Merchant and it was there I was exposed to high tea and the very fancy Mariage Freres brand. When they switched over to The O Dor, my girlfriend and I found salvation in going for a lovely cup of tea and decompress with some tea scones.

It has since become an obsession. I have a tea cupboard, filled with a very large variety of teas. I also use the Breville Tea Maker to make my tea. I favour black teas, with a close second being North African Mint Green Tea. Because I have the luxury of working from home, I get to enjoy a wonderful cup of tea every morning, and the journey resets daily.
