I have not had tea such as this in a long while; at least not since having moved. I buy cheaper teas as it has nothing to do with it being a favorite or not. It is purely economical and yet I find I waste the money since it is truly best to buy for quality what you like and will enjoy than to purchase on impulse because something is inexpensive and available.

I purchased this tea whilst at a Family Dollar store along with several other items. And when I got home I fixed myself a cup of this tea; brewing the water hot and pouring water’s content into my tea mug with tea bag in it and leaving it to steep for few minutes. The tea’s is both rich and mellow; yielding in color a reddish-brown infusion with a light character and by this it is not as robust in flavoring and aroma.

I drink this tea with slow sips as I went about preparing the dinner and some other chores around the house. I continue to sip of this tea and adding more water to my cup for more tea. What is good about this tea is that it is very mellow and why perhaps it tends to be highly recommended for serving as iced tea with lemon and/or honey.

I am simply having several cup of this tea whilst hot and savoring the smoothness in the cup with a somewhat roasted aroma.

I like to drink tea less so than when I was aptly reviewing teas. I find that I like less and less of things as I age. I am a somber spirit who prays daily to not be at all. Thank you Steepster for all that you do to enrich tea drinkers.
