This was the first tea served at tea party today. Our main snack – Tollhouse cookies fresh and hot from the oven, made with freshly ground hard red wheat flour. I wanted to serve this first with the cookies because I felt that the full body and flavor would be an excellent contrast to the sweetness of the cookies. It was, and it worked. They complemented each other nicely.

This is a great, all around black tea, strong but not aggressive, smooth yet not wimpy. Thumbs up from both myself and my tea guest today.

I am a music teacher, tutor, and former homeschool mom (25 years!) who started drinking loose leaf tea about eight 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…
