I was really shocked to see what low ratings this tea has! Maybe mine was a little different? Or fresher?

It is a type of tea I really don’t drink. It says it is a blend of teas from India and Assam seemed to be the dominant flavor. Thick, malty, and bready came to mind as the best way to describe it. Usually Assam tea gives me a stomach ache and I avoid it, or at least add milk to tone it down when I must drink it. But this was quite good with my breakfast. I was damp and a little chilly from dealing with the chickens and getting rained on as I performed my coop chores, so a hearty tea was more welcome than usual. Breakfast was a fresh egg and homemade Finnish yogurt with a bit of raw honey. It went very well together.

I didn’t buy this – it was given to me by a student in a bag of Christmas goodies and I am just now getting around to drinking it. Someone compared it to Red Rose, which I don’t think I have ever tasted, but I bet they are spot on. This is what I think of as builders’ tea, but I enjoyed it this morning, even though it is a type of tea I don’t usually drink.

Bio

I am a music teacher, tutor, and former homeschool mom (25 years!) who started drinking loose leaf tea about twelve 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…
