drank Keemun Mao Feng by Harney & Sons
2273 tasting notes

Though my guest loved La Belle Helene best of these two today (we didn’t compare them to Golden Monkey, nothing compares to Golden Monkey!) this tea was especially good to me today. I tasted some breadiness or something I really hadn’t picked up on before. It went especially well with our tea treats. It was paired with homemade brownies, from freshly ground wheat, naturally, that were served with fresh strawberries, blueberries, and cherries. The tea was an excellent complement to such hearty, flavorful fare and didn’t fade at all, but held its own. Excellent tea today! I won’t bother to post another review of Harney Golden Monkey. Everyone knows how I feel about that!

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…
