This tea was a favorite years ago. 30 years ago I was served this when I was staying with a friend in Minneapolis. At that point in my life I wasn’t much of a tea drinker. Probably because to me, tea was Lipton. I’m sure there are plenty of people who enjoy LIpton, but to me it is bitter and astringent. So this herbal tea came as a pleasant surprise.

Yesterday I did my grocery shopping and I saw this tea was on sale for $2.19 a box. I completely ignored my vow to buy no more tea and put a box in my cart. Last night I brewed a cup. Ah. Just as cinnamon-red-hot-candy as I remembered. I just really like this tea.

I love cats. I love alone time. I love sitting indoors on a cold winter night with a book or my knitting while drinking tea. I don’t have a sense of smell, so many of the more subtle flavors of tea escape me. Two of the things I CAN taste are bitter and sour, so any tea that has even a slightly bitter taste is nasty for me. And what others might perceive as pleasant tartness may be horribly sour for me.

I’m also a writer. I love writing, and a mug of hot tea helps me get through the hours sitting in front of the computer. Although I’m a comparatively new tea drinker, I’m jumping in feet first. Feel free to recommend any teas you think I might enjoy.

100-91 – Wowza! I want to keep this tea in the cupboard all the time.
75-90 – Very nice. It would be good to have this tea on hand from time to time.
60-74 – OK. Wouldn’t keep it in the cupboard, but I would drink it again.
45-59 – If a friend served this I would drink it to be polite, but it’s not really my cuppa.
Lower than 45 – Blech. It was too sour or bitter for my taste. Would not drink it again.
