This tea is from a local tearoom, The Steeping Room. It is their “Morning Blend”. Slightly smokey, medium weight tea. Along the lines of Irish or Scottish Breakfast, without being as bold. Very smooth with little astringency and a neutral flavor neither bitter nor sour. Reminds me of Victorian Afternoon from MTW Teas. This would be a good “Anytime” tea, especially if you wanted to introduce someone to smokey tea…the smoke is understated and well done.

I remember when I discovered that there was more to tea than hot or iced. I was given a loose tea sampler (M.T.W.) and a stainless steel tea ball as a Christmas gift many years ago. That was the start of what will be a life-long love of fine tea. I discovered Steepster from a blog entry on the Mark. T. Wendell website…and have, from Steepster, discovered even more fine teas and vendors. I decided to post my thoughts in the hope that others discover a good, fine tea.
