drank Eight at the Fort by Harney & Sons
2271 tasting notes

Bought a sample of this – youngest child aka the tea addict says BUY A TIN! This tea has a wonderful aroma – I could sit here sniffing the leaves for the rest of the afternoon but I have to go to the gym. (We had eclairs with our tea this afternoon so it is especially important!) The dry leaves are interesting to look at – black, straight leaves, thin lightly curled ones, and green ones that aren’t green tea I think but maybe darjeeling? At least when it is steeped they look just like my 1629 Blend Darjeeling from Southern Season. It was initially astringent, which I don’t like, and might mean I should steep it for less time. I added milk and a little sugar (my friend added only milk and was satisified -she’s a no sugar gal) and it was deeee-licious! This one is a keeper! Plus, I LOVE the history behind it. And my kid wants it, so…….

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…
