Mastress Alita’s sipdown challenge Monday, February 1st: National Freedom Day / Black History Month Tea #1
Somehow I have notaone tea from that lovely list of black owned tea shops. For shame. I looked through it a couple times. I guess it’s eye opening to see where I mostly buy teas, when I do buy teas. I really need to check out some of the smaller shops more often. There are so many shops though! Which are your favorite shops/teas from that list?
So I went with this black tea today. It also just happens to be a sipdown. I love this type of leaf – the silky black bundles. Not sure if this is the same as Adagio’s Yunnan Noir – this one looks more black than Adagio’s gold. I have noticed that any Yunnan tends to lose nuance with age which is a shame. But it’s still a lovely cup of tea.
