drank English Breakfast by Harney & Sons
2264 tasting notes

Woke up needing a kick this morning, as I was stiff and sore. I chose English Breakfast because this particular one is robust and strong without being overpowering or bitter. This is the loose leaf tea rather than H&S Royal English Breakfast which is in sachets. I did add a little splash of milk and a wee bit of sugar, but that’s just me! It was just what I needed. I like that this EB is all Keemun, that’s right, one hundred percent! I think this must be what a coffee drinker feels like in the morning with their cuppa, so if you are switching from coffee to tea for the lower caffeine and theonine benefits, this might be a good choice for you. I use a shorter steep time to make sure it doesn’t get bitter.

Boiling 4 min, 15 sec

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…
