drank Tong Lu Black by Harney & Sons
2845 tasting notes

This is a showstopper tea. The description says it is grown by monks who brought Anji tea bushes to Tong Lu. They done good.

I served this for tea party yesterday with a chocolate pound cake with whipped cream and a homemade strawberry purée/sauce on the side for a little sparkle. My guest commented several times – “This is good. This is good tea,” several times while sipping this one. That doesn’t happen often.

But quality shows and you can’t hide it in this tea. This one deserves to be on a desert island list if you like black tea that makes you stop and take notice.

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…
