The first tea of tea party today – this was served with a warm Blueberry Upside Down Skillet Cake that my youngest daughter made in my ancient cast iton skillet using blueberries from my friend’s blueberry bushes! We also made home made vanilla ice cream to serve with it.

The tea is smooth and rich, not too strong but resteeps decently. It is great by itself or paired with food, doesn’t need milk and sugar but can handle it if that is how you prefer your tea. The dry leaves are curly and light as a feather with lots of gold mixed in. It looks almost like a Bi Luo Chun, but a black tea. Delicious!

Bio

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…
