drank Genteel Lady Tea by Luis
2386 tasting notes

I have been hoarding this and it is time to let it go. I thought I would never find anything like it when it tried it three years ago, and I doubted anyone I knew would be in Hungary anytime soon, so I searched for it online and discovered it under the name of My Lady, but all were far, far away. One company said I had to buy a vast amount before they would ship to America. A Slovenian gentleman agreed to send it but they had no PayPal account.

I am delighted to say that as I drink it now three years down the road, I see that this isn’t a lost forever tea. I have found a number of teas over these years that compare very favorably so I won’t despair when it is gone. But it will always hold a special place for me, as one of the first teas brought back by my daughter when she traveled and a tea purchased by her and her now-husband who is very dear to us.

It is a smooth black tea with so much fruity flavor, no doubt blended by one of the big German distributors but pretty reminiscent of the fine French blends.

Bio

I am a music teacher, tutor, and former homeschool mom (25 years!) who started drinking loose leaf tea about ten years ago! My daughters and I have tea every day, and we are frequently joined by my students or friends for “tea time.” Now my hubby joins us, too. His tastes have evolved from Tetley with milk and sugar to mostly unadorned greens and oolongs.

We have learned so much history, geography, and culture in this journey.

I am also reviewing for Sororitea Sisters now!

My avatar is a mole in a teacup! Long story…
