Mary’s English Kitchen is a brand new tea shop that opened over the weekend. They are selling loose leaf and bulk teas as well as by the potful. I was thinking about gunpowder yesterday so that’s what I opted to try first. I will have they highly touted English breakfast when I’m up for a black. The tea was brewed in boiling water for 3 minutes (they give you a cute sand timer with the pot) It was more astringent than some gunpowder’s with a yellow=green liquor. The initial taste was astringent followed by a peppery punch with some grassiness to the finish. Not my favorite but I’ll enjoy it again on an afternoon. I porblaby won’t buy any to take home though.
