Tea Travels: Greece. San Antonio Summerland, Mykonos. Good hotel. Weird location. Terrible tea. Couldn’t make it through my first cup. When we had some time later I steeped something better. This. The leaf is small to medium in size. Twisted tightly. Dark brown. The liquor color is amber and clear. We look out on donkeys grazing among the dry plant life. They have the most unique flowers here. Double and triple colors blooming on the same plant. It fills your mind with wonder like this tea fills your mouth. Smooth with astringency after 3 minutes. Smoky flavors along with ripe bark and roasted squash. And yet it is lighter than other black teas. Mykonos is a party island. It’s a lot of fun but to be honest my favorite part was visiting Delos. If you go you must visit Delos.

Tea Profile:
Allergies: Almonds and Dairy.
Don’t like: Sugar, artificial flavoring.

Preferably pure tea. But I think blending is its own art form and when done well you can find some amazing flavors.

I will drink any type and love to taste whatever I can get my hands on but if I had to choose it would go in this order Green, Black, Oolong, White, Dark, and Yellow. (Purple is not a type of tea it is a cultivar known as TRFK 306/1 )
