This is another tea I received in a swap with derk. Many thanks!

Last night was our writers’ group meeting and I try to serve tea and a little something to eat or snack. Yesterday I ground some hard red whear, which has a nicem nutty flavor, and made chocolate chip pecan Tollhouse cookies. I usually serve a mild green tea or a jasmine tea to the group as they are not necessarily into tea like I am, but I really thought this would be a much better choice.

Even though there were only four of us last night, we finished off two large tetsubins of this. I think it is safe to say that it was a hit! It has a nice nutty flavor, and I would call it a medium roast. We were steeping western style of course.

Since we were reading, eating, and listening, I didn’t give it all the attention it really deserved, but I can say that it was delicious and I would definitely order this, and would also try it gong fu to see how it changes.

Excellent tea. Thank you, derk!

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…
