First tea of the day. I am not going to assign a rating because I rather like this tea, but it’s not an ideal first tea tea for me. I like my first tea of the day to be strong, hot and assertive. This one isn’t brewed at boiling so it’s not that hot, and it has a lovely understatement so I wouldn’t call it assertive.

I think this is going to fall in mid day for me. I hope everyone else is as quirky as I am about their teas!

Aside from that, apple? Yes, apple, but not overwhelmingly so. I get pie, but I’m not sure how. The cinnamon mentioned is barely there, I get a glimpse before it rounds the corner and goes out of sight. It’s not very astringent, as I brewed for 3 minutes. The aftertaste is just pleasant apple.

Mom of two practically grown girls, extremely happily married to a man who is amused by my obsession with tea, and company owner who works from home. Life is good.

Likes/dislikes: I love black teas, especially strong/malty ones. I am ok with flavored teas if the base is strong. I like some whites. I really don’t like any tea that tastes “green” – if I wanted to drink something that tastes like green beans, I would cook some green beans. I am not big on green teas or genmaichas. I am learning to like puerhs.

If we are trading, I have a STRONG aversion to coconut, banana and licorice. I love citrus, vanilla and spice. Not a fan of florals.
