drank Emperor's Red by Premium Steap
2274 tasting notes

Overslept this morning and needed a really good pot of tea. Youngest daughter and I made a little bowl of cheese cubes and brewed a pot of this. Aaaaaaah! This is even better than I remembered. Last time it was a little on the weak side for me, so I increased my steep time to 4 minutes. Again, the aroma of cocoa was AMAZING! This is probably the most chocolately smelling tea I have had, excluding those that have chocolate flavor added. This time I also detect what I thought was a light vegetal note, perhaps what the company is describing as fruity. It is just a hint of what I taste strongly in Ruby #18. Very complex, very smooth, very, very satisfying. Thank you, again. Jacqueline! I had been wanting to try a Red Robe style tea for some time…..

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…
