drank Beijing Breakfast by Postcard Teas
2757 tasting notes

I served this today at tea party with iced pumpkin coffee cake. I always make three teas for tea party day and I usually drink all three. If there is a tea that someone else particularly loves, I will stick to another so they can have more of their favorite.

Today I was the one who had a favorite and I didn’t ask – after the first round of cups I kept pouring this one for me! It was even better than the first time I had it.

I think the first time I made it I used boiling water for four minutes. Today I used 200F instead. I don’t know if that is what made the difference but it is more in line with their instructions. This tea just sparkled today!

The coffee cake was spiced and pumpkin-y, but when I sipped the tea there were always lovely flavors breaking through – fruity at times, and sweet caramel. This cake could easily overcome some teas but didn’t dampen my enthusiasm for this one. We were one person low today, so I helped myself! Very nice.

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…
