This is my daily cup of morning tea. This is not Lipton’s (for the Americans)…this is something in a class all its own. Brewed lightly, it is a peaceful, sipping tea. It has the character to be brewed dark and makes a wonderful iced tea. It is possible to over brew this tea, in which case you will get an astringent, biting flavor that is not too pleasant…but takes to watering down (as in iced tea) to save it.

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.
