drank English Toffee by DAVIDsTEA
2219 tasting notes

I have been AWOL for a while, but I am drinking tea every day. This year has been ROUGH, and the end of the year more so. My mother-in-law has nearly died several times, is essentially a quadriplegic now with limited use of one hand and arm, but weak. We have a schedule of family members to feed her and I do from five to seven meals a week. Also, a neighbor had manic episodes and started waking everyone in the middle of the night every night screaming and finally set an outbuilding on fire ten feet from our very large outbuilding, both being surrounded with dry straw, and tonight a very nice lady ran a red light and hit our van when my daughter was out Christmas shopping. No one was hurt. But yeh, that’s been our last six months in a nutshell.

So I need tea. I need a lot of tea. So it is a good thing that I have a lot of tea. And tonight’s Davids Tea calendar offering is hitting the spot. We already had several pots of puerh today and were thrilled to see that this has a puerh base. It is sweet and rich and creamy. I like it more than most of the other reviewers. It is a nicely flavored, highly drinkable puerh and resteeped pretty well. However, where I got about ten steps from the Teavivre cake I was drinking this afternoon, I expect only two from this. Second steep is tasty but noticeably paler, so I won’t attempt a third and taint the memory of it. Very nice.

Bio

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

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