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.

A strong tea with a lot of body. This tea has an earthy, loamy flavor. Very easy to overbrew. The tea has a different appearance from other “leaf” teas. It is very fine, almost like gunpowder teas and needs to be measured when brewing…its soooo easy to get a lot more than you think! Re-steeps well (for me).

Tried this one again. Full teaspoon (not the tsp) with Hot (200f) water for about 5 minutes. Lightly colored. Good flavor with a bit of body. Very mild tannin only at the aftertaste. I think the key is HOT! water.

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, by whom I cannot remember. 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. Bravo!
