So I’m sorry for getting all ethnocentric with this, but there is definitely a difference between American and Indian tastes when it comes to tea. Being half-Indian/half-Texan, it’s hard to describe the immense sadness that overcomes me when I experience the American tea culture. That being said, I know that American-biased tea drinkers won’t like this tea that much. In the end, though, it’s their loss, because this is a strong black tea that has a good depth and mellow flavor. Serving this tea with milk brings out its flavor that much more — and also makes it great for tea time, get-togethers, and as a drink with meals (I recommend cardamom cookies). The nice thing about this tea, too, is that it’s hard to overbrew it. It can be made light or dark depending on steep time, but it doesn’t get quite so tannin-y if you forget about for a while.

Calochortus likes plants and knitting and bacteria. She doesn’t have a very large tea allowance, so expect a lot of grocery store/local/home-grown/bagged teas. She’s grown up with tea, as it is part of (half of) her culture.

Her favorite teas are black and usually fruity or vanilla-y. She likes to put milk in her tea, too, but she’s trying to widen her palette with green teas and rooibos. She finds that tea leaves are great for composting, too.
