This morning I decided to splurge and have a proper fry-up for breakfast. Well, proper sans the bangers, fried eggs, bacon, and butter. A little grape seed oil, tomatoes, mushrooms, and beans on toast is still a respectable fry-up in my book. Ooooh, it really hit the spot and it gave me the perfect opportunity to give Queen Catherine another go.
The last time I tried Queen Catherine I experienced an overwhelming and inexplicable rose flavor that didn’t seem right. Well, I’m pleased to report that my rose hallucinations have passed and the Queen is good! Very, very, very good indeed! At first sip, there’s a malt flavor that progresses into a strong almost coffee like black tea body. The finish is rich and chocolatey. I love this tea!
A big thank you hug to the wonderful QuiltGuppy for sending me such a generous sample of this amazing tea. If I hadn’t had enough to give the Queen a second try, I wouldn’t have known how wonderful this tea truly is. I’m defiantly buying this one!
