Wow. That was lovely.

I stopped by World Cup of Tea, and looked over their selection. Since I’d never had it before, I decided to try a cup of Silver Needle. (I got it to go because I wanted to go explore the area, and also because I forgot to bring in a book and was by myself. )

The tea was a lovely, light yellow color. I didn’t get much aroma from it, but then the cup was not the best for sniffing. But the flavor was great. Very light, very subtle, but the buttery notes they mention were definitely there.

I’m very glad I tried it, and can’t wait to go back and try more of their tea!

Bio

I’ve got a lot of interests: sushi, science fiction/fantasy, medieval recreation, cooking (specifically medieval cooking), reading, British science fiction (Doctor Who!), hand sewing and now TEA!!

My favorites tend to be oolongs and flavored black teas. I like highly flavored teas more than delicate ones. Rooibos tends to taste like dirt to me, and hibiscus is very sour to my palate. But I’m always up to try all sorts of things, and will often find things that I really like which I thought I’d hate.
