Fortnum Advent Sipdown #19

Sweet from licorice root, rich with coconut, this one was better iced than hot to me. Finished it off as a big carafe of iced tea to go with dinner and to refresh in the afternoons.

I forgot it had licorice root in it when I made the iced tea and I added sugar as normal. Ashman asked if this had been sweetened and I realized my mistake. Yeh, it was super sweet…but good! I made another carafe when we finished that one and put less sugar than usual so it wouldn’t overwhelm.

All that remains are the Earl Grey blends (four typed) and the green tea with elderflower. I am likely on my own to sip these down as Ashman doesn’t love floral other than jasmine and is not an EG fan.

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…
