Started drinking this while eating my bacon-wrapped potato wedge and I realized I couldn’t really taste the tea. So I steeped it longer. This is a good tea for this type of breakfast. The bacon escalates some of the woody notes and tones down the tobacco. The banana doesn’t help. Its sweet flavor almost makes me want to stop drinking the tea. But maybe… Nope. It’s not the banana. I oversteeped it a bit. But what is this flavor? It is tannic. It is tanned leather. It is not something I enjoy in my mouth. Burnt… something.

Numerical ratings don’t work for me—one must be consistent to play the rating game and I am far too wishy-washy and moody. One of the few teas I ever bothered to rate, and 100 at that, was Fujian Congou by Nature’s Tea Leaf, now long gone. I wrote rambling rhapsodies about its toast-and-cocoa goodness.

However, after tasting my first cup of Old South Meeting House, I was deeply tempted to start messing with the “Drag Me” bar. The Congou part of this blend is strong enough to take me back to that old favorite, and I have had my nose in the mug all morning like a horse with a feedbag. It smells like Ry-Krisp crackers and tastes like toast made from homemade wheat bread.

Thanks to Michelle for the special treat!

I know what you mean with ratings! The only reason I rate mine is so that when I go to a tea’s page, I can easily see what I thought of that tea since the rating sits at the top. If Steepster made it easier to find your own reviews, I’d probably do the same!

I like the history with this one too. Boston Tea Party anniversary is this week :)

Oliver Pluff Tea Co. does some really nice Boston Tea party teas, also. Some years back, one of my Sunday girls brought me a little packet from her family’s trip to New England.

This is an interesting blend of congou and bohea that tastes most of tobacco. I’m not sure I’ve ever had the two teas separately, but Upton has some congou available that I might try a sample. This blend is definitely smooth, and can be brewed as suggested for a lighter cup, or add another spoonful for a more hearty brew. No bitterness here, but notes of toasty hay and burnt tobacco. Not sure I need more of this in my cupboard but it’s a nice mellow cup to savor.

Flavors: Toasty, Tobacco
