Hallelujah! The search is over for a replacement tea for my daughter who says she MUST drink it during math or fail. Her London Cuppa is no longer available here, and I found out that it was heavy on the Kenyan tea, so I tried this one from the fine tea wall at SS. It is very low priced – only $2 the ounce! This is smooth like a Ceylon and has a lot of natural sweetness. I could drink it without sugar, but with sugar you have something akin to good ole’ Southern iced tea taste going on. This isn’t a high-falutin’ tea. It is a good basic, smooth tea much like Lipton loose or Black Pearl, but smoother. We steeped for four minutes but it could have used one more.

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…
