When I travel I have a trifecta of things I must acquire; tea, cupcakes, and jewelry. This last trip, I only got the tea but, then again, I was a wee bit preoccupied with meeting and cooing over my new niece.
After being somewhat disappointed in the tea options in the Minneapolis area I stumbled upon Mrs. Kelly’s tea at the farmer’s market and decided to branch out a bit from my normal dessert tea and try this, a white tea, and a green (which you can see from my tasting logs are rare for me). I’m glad I did. I haven’t found a ton of fruity black teas that I like but this renews my faith in fruity black teas. It’s got a really nice balance between the fruit, the tea, and the vanilla and cinnamon, and, most importantly, the fruit flavors aren’t artificial and gross.
Happy I have family in Minneapolis who can bring me more of this.
