Tea of the Week: Tea & Scones Black Tea (Tea of the Week for August 6, 2018)
Greetings, Tea Lovers!
I’m behind (nothing new, I know) – but I am working my tail off to get caught up!
Our Tea of the Week for August 6, 2018 is:
Tea & Scones Black Tea – I’m so happy with how this one turned out! I started with a base of organic black teas (Yunnan, Ceylon & Assam – heavy on the Yunnan) and added raisins & some oranges. Then I added a bit of scone-y essence with a touch of butter. This tastes like afternoon tea with scones – all that’s missing are those unwanted calories from the scones & cream!

Aw, I’m sorry. I read your posts every week but rarely reply. Just pretend I’m saying how great the blend sounds each week. :D I’d love to try The Unicorn or I could always use some more Berried Treasure. :D
I really liked this post. Graveyard Mist sounds like it might be hauntingly good.
Also, I see reviews of your teas popping up, which is interesting.
I always read the updates! Berried treasure and the unicorn are on my hit list (and i know i’m not a US citizen…but my tea mule is? haha)
I just wanted to say I always read these, even if I don’t reply. I’m not in the US, but I wanted to let you know you do have 52Teas addicts reading this post every week.
Hey just a suggestion regarding your christmas poll. I want to vote on the teas but I’m not familiar with a lot of the names and a lot are no longer on the website. It would be helpful if you linked the original blog post that you did just so we could get an idea of it.
Just a suggestion for someone more out of the 52Teas loop :)
As per @Babble’s request, I have created a page that links to my blog posts about the tea or alternatively – in the cases of the teas that I’ve not yet reblended – I’ve linked to my review of a tea on SororiTea Sisters blog or the Steepster page.
You can check that out here: http://52teas.com/new-page/
Thanks again, @Babble, for the suggestion!
psssst… what’s going on for last week and this? :)
I’m behind on announcing the teas because the subscription shipment was delayed. The subscriptions will go out tomorrow – and after I am sure that at least a few people have received their subscription boxes, I’ll start announcing teas.
I apologize for the delay – there were a few issues on the family front that held me back – as well as issues with a couple of the teas themselves. I’m now packaging teas and subscription boxes as quickly as I can and getting ready for shipment.
Well, I’m grabbing a taster of the Golden Mulberries out of curiosity today as part of my First Ever order from 52Teas, and I meant to add a little note when I paid … but I stopped paying attention in my tea-infused eagerness, and if there was a “notes” box, I swept right past it. Whoops. ;)
Anyway, just tossing you (meaning Anne, in case there’s a chance Amethyst is on this account, not sure how likely that is) a hellooooo from an old Yahoogroups listmate! (And hi to Amethyst, too, for good measure, haha.) I’m super glad to see your tea blends are still circulating and to be able to read your tasty tea reviews. :D
And now I return you to your regularly scheduled drinking and blending of teas…
OH my goodness – how good it is to hear from you! I had been thinking of you just the other day – wondering how things are for you! I think back often to the days of those Yahoo Groups – we had a lot of fun. (All the sudden I feel like an old lady sitting on her rocking chair reminiscing. LOL)
I’m so glad you found me! We’ll have to catch up!
Definitely! My inbox is wide open if you want to switch over to private message. :D
I think about the Olden Golden Days ;) quite a lot, too. I don’t know that I’ve found another community quite like the one we had back then, though I did end up finally joining Steepster sort of like I ended up in your art group from the tea one. Someone posted their tea destash on a totally unrelated discussion board, and looking up reviews of the teas on their list poked me out of my state of waffledom as far as joining the site. Tea still makes the world go ’round…
