I haven’t left a tasting note on this one yet???

I’ve been enjoying this one for a couple of months. It is the perfect cup for these cold dreary nights of deep winter. It has been 41 days since we were at freezing or above, and we certainly won’t be seeing 32 until at least March. In fact, the highest temp since January 7 was 19 about a week ago.

This is like summer in a cup. Bright and naturally sweet, it gives me a much needed lift. Even my weak nose can smell the sweet tang of blackberries in this tea. You know what a ripe juicy blackberry tastes like. That is what the tea tastes like. I love just about all the honeybush teas from 52Teas, and this one is the same. I don’t care as well for rooibos and I can taste the woodiness of it here, but it doesn’t ruin the cup for me. Raspberries and blackberries are my favorite fruits anytime of the year. I buy them every week even in the dead of winter. But berries in February don’t taste as good as berries in July. This tea reminds me summer is coming.

I love cats. I love alone time. I love sitting indoors on a cold winter night with a book or my knitting while drinking tea. I don’t have a sense of smell, so many of the more subtle flavors of tea escape me. Two of the things I CAN taste are bitter and sour, so any tea that has even a slightly bitter taste is nasty for me. And what others might perceive as pleasant tartness may be horribly sour for me.

I’m also a writer. I love writing, and a mug of hot tea helps me get through the hours sitting in front of the computer. Although I’m a comparatively new tea drinker, I’m jumping in feet first. Feel free to recommend any teas you think I might enjoy.

100-91 – Wowza! I want to keep this tea in the cupboard all the time.
75-90 – Very nice. It would be good to have this tea on hand from time to time.
60-74 – OK. Wouldn’t keep it in the cupboard, but I would drink it again.
45-59 – If a friend served this I would drink it to be polite, but it’s not really my cuppa.
Lower than 45 – Blech. It was too sour or bitter for my taste. Would not drink it again.
