First of all, I must begin with a confession. Often, I drink the same teas day after day. Those Lady Grey tea bags just keep jumping into my mug. While it is perfectly acceptable to keep enjoying old favorites, it makes it difficult to recommend new teas to others. I decided to outsmart myself by rearranging my tea cabinet. Now, all my favorites are on the top shelf where I cannot reach them without a step stool. I won’t leave them up there too long. Just until I try a few teas that have been stuck behind all my favorites.
Today’s tea is one that got moved to the front of the cabinet in the tea shuffling, and I’m so glad it did. I am enjoying this tea. It is so dark that it looks like you have coffee in your cup. Good news, it doesn’t taste like coffee. No matter how long you leave your tea bag in the cup, this tea won’t turn bitter. No fruity taste to this tea. It just tastes like tea. This is the perfect tea for drinking on a dreary, rainy day. Plus, it is a fair trade, organic tea.
