Hope you loved on your mom a little today. Moms leak if you don’t fill their buckets once in a while.

My bucket is brimming—between husband, son, and (ahem) cats (or so the gift tag says), I have a basketful of treats to paw through, including this dignified tin of black tea with the Royal Warrant. We’re huge “Keeping Up Appearances” fans, so Royal Warrant Tea holds a special place in my heart.

Other than the little niblet on Partridge’s website (East African, mountain grown), Partridge’s is a little sparse on information. I’ll take scent and flavor over information any day, and this is replete with both. It’s loose leaf rather than CTC, and smells like a bucket of buckwheat. The flavor is equally sweet and wheaty, smooth like velvet with a color like the dark cherry wood finish on my tea chest. Fine stuff.

Happy Mother’s Day! I quote Keeping Up Appearances so often…especially her particular brand of backseat driving!

I am certain this would’ve been even better had I steeped in my Royal Doulton with the hand-painted periwinkles ;)

I like the bucket and Hyacinth Bucket references together! Ha ha!

So glad your bucket got filled! May it ever overflow!

That’s boo-KAY, dear.
