I’ve been wanting to try “Eight at the Fort” ever since I read about it:

In June of 1997, President Bill Clinton hosted a G8 (Group of Eight) summit in Denver. One of the events was at a friend’s restaurant: the Arnold’s The Fort that is high above the city. We were commissioned to do a special tea for that event. So we carefully chose eight special teas that would combine together in the hope of a better future.

I decided to dig around on the interwebs and see if I could find this restaurant, and I DID! It hardly has the looks of anything elegant, and at first I found it hard to believe that a G8 was held there … but it’s true. I am very impressed with this tea. Smooth, almost velvet-like. Just a really good cuppa. WONDERFUL.

I’m an impatient, weird, overly giggly redhead. I’m obsessed with British stuff and have a love for tea (obviously). I enjoy reading novels when time allows it, but most of the time I can be found searching for BBC crime shows on Netflix.

My favorite teas are black, flavored, herbal and iced. I also like some green and some rooibos.

I only review teas once and I don’t log a tea every time I drink it. Ain’t nobody got time for that.
