it’s another sunny cold morning in February. i’m drinking a mug before the arctic expedition to the grocery store. this tea has such a delicate flavour that i was going to write it off as bland, but as i let it cool, i notice a caramel taste that is quite pleasing. it is smooth, probably a good afternoon tea, if you don’t mind high caffeine. i might try steeping this longer next time to see if more of the flavour can be teased out.

Flavors: Astringent, Caramel, Malt, Sweet

Boiling 4 min, 0 sec 1 tsp 8 OZ / 236 ML

I’m a writer who drinks a lot of black tea. My favs are robust black teas, especially Lapsang Souchong and Irish Breakfast. In 2019/2020 I have a monthly black tea subscription from TeaRunners.com, so i’ll be sharing a lot of their teas. I’m always interested in meeting other tea enthusiasts, especially those who love black teas. At home, I prefer loose leafed teas but i will drink bagged, if desperate and out in the wilds.
