My sample is just a tea bag, one of those round ones, the plain black tea, which really is Breakfast Tea. I brewed it with boiling water for about 2 minutes and my, how dark it is! It is very hearty, very much in the British style, ready to accept and thrive on milk and sugar. It quite takes me right back to the summer I worked in England and would run to the break room so I could get a "cuppa" without sugar. It really is very, very good. It's the tea that saw countless English, Scots, Irish and Welsh folks through the wars and sustained them every day. It is full-bodied, flavorful and doesn't fall over into being more tannic than wanted. I think I just found my new breakfast tea. Best of all, it's on sale at the moment and they also have chocolates! Two favorite foods, you can't go wrong. Indeed, I have to agree with Rob Milo, it's the BEST.
We are ever so cautiously approaching Spring. The sune shines, a minute amount of snow falls, the wind comes up, the sun shines, it's warm, it's cold. March came in somewhat lamb-like, but it is roaring out. Even so, when I see those little green leaves, my heart leaps in joy!
