4tsp for 3 cups water. The leaves were dark, twisted and long. When I smelled them my first thought was laying on a blanket in a park in the spring time. That’s what I smelled, fresh grass with light notes of flowers.

The liquor is light amber. I don’t get the same scent with the liquor as I did with the leaves which is a shame. There is a light scent, somewhat earthy. The flavor is light and mild. There is a little bit of a lasting flavor which I think is typical of black teas.

This tea is good. Now I will try it sweetened. The finish is smoother for me when I sweetened the tea. I like this tea.

I’ve been drinking tea for the past 35 years but only recently have I found ‘good’ tea. I am starting to become a tea ‘snob’ and I am ok with that. Why waste my time on bad tea?

I am in the process of developing a business plan to open up my own tea business, Bee-Tea. I will be attending the World Tea Expo and the New Business Boot Camp. Follow me at www.Facebook.com/BeeTeaCompany to watch me grow.

I also teach various aerobics classes at 24HourFitness and the YMCA to keep in shape and I am a software developer by trade.
