March Sipdown Prompt – your oldest black tea

It is a true sipdown!

Yep, I am replacing Perseus as my oldest black tea and counting this one instead, because when I went to make my tea soda syrup for tonight, I finished the tin, and when I turned the tin over I saw that the best buy date was in 2018! So this was older than Perseus.

I don’t care that much for chai except as a latte. That’s how this one lasted so long. But now I am making tea soda to replace root beer as my weekend treat and I need a good chai. So far I have tried using Stash Holiday Chai and this one, and I think I prefer this one.

I love that the black pepper doesn’t punch me in the face. It does have that little extra quality that makes it better than Stash no matter how you are making it. It is hard to come by, so I need to puzzle out another tea for next weekend’s root beer replacement. I am thinking of trying Vanilla Comoro with some added spices. We shall see.

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