An excellent spiced tea. This is one of my fallback commercial teabags and one of the first I tried when branching out from Lipton’s plain jane standard. Used a bit of Wendy’s (see flame on it elsewhere) to sweeten it slightly and poured over ice. Refreshing.

OK, something so bad, I had to create an entry that I otherwise wouldn’t have bothered with. I had a sweet “tea” from Wendy’s yesterday. OMG! There was nothing “tea” about it…open a sugar packet and suck on it! Seriously, I couldn’t identify any tea flavor, artificial or otherwise. I ended up brewing some other tea when I got back to the office and used Wendy’s as sweenter! If I could put multiple thumbs down on this stuff, I would.

last cup…and good to the last sip. Sounds like a coffee commercial.

Next to last spoonful…sigh. Time to find something new. As the fragments get smaller, its brewing faster. Probably more tea per teaspoon that way. Did a resteep too…was just as good as the first.

Its getting HOT here and tea just doesn’t appeal when its 80 deg F in the morning. Still, this is such a good tea.

Strong, as expected. Has a mellow, earthy taste. I did not find it particularly remarkable, rather a plain, middle of the road, strong tea. Bet it would make a good iced tea and a good tea for water of questionable quality (water with its own taste)

This thing needs a blog to go with it. Disappointed to find out that Serendipity Teas only ship within Canada. I wanted to try some of that Buckingham Palace Garden Party that teaequalbliss wrote about.

Found a stash of this that I didn’t know I had. Its old and a bit off (can tea be tired and musty?).

Kenyan Mountain Tea is (in my opinion) the best tea offered by Mark Wendell.
Outstanding aroma, flavor, and color. A true masterpiece if you like a strong tea.

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.
