This was a free sample sent a while back by Russell Allyn and Harney and Sons. Many thanks!

Since we are working on the kitchen I am able to see…no, I am confronted with…the vastness of my tea collection. Oh dear me. I am really trying to finish off tins that are close to being empty, but it is also bringing some teas to the forefront that had somehow gotten pushed to the back. This is one of them.

I was looking for a good variety of teas for tea party today and realized that I have never served this green that I can recall. I really should have been drinking this more often because it is very good. There is the frosty, mineral taste that I get from some white teas and from Snow Dragon, but there is also good body and more flavor than I was expecting. Not sour, not grassy to me. This was smooth and very enjoyable with food. I think it would be fabulous with a meal.

My guest today gave it a BIG thumbs up, and she really isn’t a green tea drinker!

I am a music teacher, tutor, and former homeschool mom (25 years!) who started drinking loose leaf tea about ten years ago! My daughters and I have tea every day, and we are frequently joined by my students or friends for “tea time.” Now my hubby joins us, too. His tastes have evolved from Tetley with milk and sugar to mostly unadorned greens and oolongs.

We have learned so much history, geography, and culture in this journey.

I am also reviewing for Sororitea Sisters now!

My avatar is a mole in a teacup! Long story…
