drank Ruby #18 by A Southern Season
2716 tasting notes

This was the final tea of tea party. I love that this one can take all kinds of abuse and still taste fantastic. It also resteeps well. It has lovely notes of golden raisin and is pale in the cup but not pale in flavor.

I have forgotten it in the past and steeped for six minutes or more and it did not get bitter. Today it didn’t get abused because this was our first tea party day with Alexa, my Amazon Echo, timing the tea for us. How convenient to tell her to set the timer for me! She also played music for us and entertained us in general, and assists me in teaching music by looking things up, playing soundtracks, and finding songs for students.

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…
