drank Queen Catherine by Harney & Sons
120 tasting notes

Second steep, I added a little leaf. The flavor has great depth, and I gave in to the subliminal messages of days past, discussions of cheese toast and mustard. The Queen pairs very well with a little rye toast, some cheddar and yellow mustard. “Pairs well” may not actually cover it. How about “incredible”, as I dip my last morsel in mustard, then follow it with a sip of tea. I have read that cheese toast was a treat for British sailors at sea. Hard to imagine a cold north wind from the Atlantic right now, but I understand how this was a desired meal. My first fresh peach of the season completed this wonderful little lunch. Long live the Queen!
