This is a very light, mellow black tea with no noticeable astringency. Flavors of toasted grain and a hint of earthiness make it a nice “warm” cup. Steeps well twice, a third steeping unfortunately results in very little flavor. I don’t recommend sweetener as it could easily overpower the tea rather than enhance, and there isn’t anything to mask with sweetness. Every now and again I will add a splash (about 1 Tbs) of milk not cream just for a different flavor.

Professional dilettante? I admit to slight snobbery for nearly all of my beverage choices.

I’m a lazy foodie. I love to read. I used to work with nuts in the land of fruits and nuts, but I got crazy and went to grad school (again) – in a different state. Now I work towards making your tasty starchy foods better for you than they were. I hate dusting. I tend to smile a lot. I cheer for the Purdue Boilermakers, Indianapolis Colts, NASCAR’s Ryan Newman, and whoever is playing against the Yankee’s or any team from L.A. There’s a lot of music I’ll listen to, but most of the time I’m not paying attention. I am a cat person, but I like dogs too. I am not a morning person. I have beaten the “World’s Largest Drum”. My sense of humor is a little whacked, but it works for me.
