Last cup of the evening. Today has been productive, I got my tea cupboard organized and all of my new tins labelled. Spring break is over, so tomorrow it’s back to school and this will be a very busy week indeed!

I’m kind of obsessed with trying plum flavored teas, so this one was a must have when we visited The London Tea Room. It steeps up to a really pretty dark purple color. The flavor is different than expected, as the plum is very tangy and tart. Sadly, there is a strange artificial taste in the finish. I tried adding a little milk to see if that would help diminish the fake flavor, but the milk curdled, so I threw out that cup and started over. Adding just sweetener helps a little, but that icky plasticky taste is still there. Really unfortunate, since the plum flavor is so nice!

-Dry blend is a trail mix of dried fruit and pieces of cinnamon bark.
-Dry blend smells like sweet plum with a hint of cinnamon. Tea liquor aroma is of spicy cinnamon and fruit.
-Tea liquor is a cloudy dark purple color.
-Tart plum flavor with an artificial finish. Warm cinnamon aftertaste.
-Best with sweetener.
-Poor tea. Tart plum flavor with a strong artificial note.

Just a Southern girl who loves sunshine, little dogs and all things tea!

I love animals and animal rescue. We have a rescued Chihuahua, Greyhound, Siamese and 2 Tabbies. We also foster kittens for the local humane society.

My favorite teas are sweet and malty black teas but I try to branch out and taste them all. :)
