Tea #17 from the Here’s Hoping TTB
I was excited to see this end up in the TTB. I’m from St. Louis originally, where London Tea Room is located, but haven’t made it back for a visit in nearly five years. I just saw that they were closing their downtown location and moving to Tower Grove, so I’ll have to check out the new location next time I’m home.
It’s been a very very long time since I’ve had this tea, I had forgotten how much I liked it and now that I’ve had another cup I really miss being able to walk over to London Tea Room for a cup of tea now and then. Since I live in a small coffee drinking town, there just aren’t that many places available for me to get a good cup of tea outside of my home.
This tea smells great in the package and even better while steeping. I’m not the biggest fan of currant or citrus teas, but for some reason I have fallen in love with this blend. I don’t think I’ve had another tea that has combined the citrus notes from the bergamot with the fruity flavors of currants, it really is a great combination. I’ll have to pick some of this up if it’s available next time I go home, which should be close to valentines day when this seasonal blend is offered.
