July Sipdown Prompt – a tea with more than five ingredients

This is the only tea I have the fits the prompt! I have several teas with five ingredients, but only one with more than five and here it is. The next time I drink it, it will be a sipdown.

They call this smokey but I have yet to discover any smoke, and for that matter, any black tea flavor. This tastes 100% like a delicious flavored oolong to me.

I made a big pot to share with ashman this morning before work, but we ended up with about ten ounces leftover. I saved it for lunch, stirred in a bit of sugar, and added ice cubes to enjoy it with lunch and what a shocker! This was amazing iced. The fruity and floral flavors intensified and made a beautiful glass of cold, refreshing respite from the heat.

I am really tempted to use what remains in the bag for a small pitcher of iced tea instead of a pot of hot…

When I looked this up to add the company description, I was surprised to see that they shut down every summer! I don’t recall seeing anything like that before. Fortunately, I was able to just take it from the bag.

I am a music teacher, tutor, and former homeschool mom (25 years!) who started drinking loose leaf tea about fourteen 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.

My avatar is a mole in a teacup! Long story…
