Taster’s Review:

Very nice!  This Lady Londonderry Tea from Culinary Teas has a really lovely balance of flavors – offering a brisk black tea base with notes of sweet strawberry and tangy lemon.  It’s a really lovely afternoon tea – and it makes a stunning iced tea too!

Of course, iced tea weather is starting to wane, which is just fine by me, I prefer my tea hot!  I still find myself guzzling at least a quart of iced tea daily – and this one really tastes great iced.  The black tea has a slightly sweet, slightly earthy, somewhat astringent quality to it, giving it that brisk, refreshing taste that I look for in an iced tea.

And the strawberry and lemon work really well together.  The strawberry has enough sweetness to soften the tart lemon to give the cup a really tasty contrast.  It’s sweet and fruity, with a nice, tarty tingle toward the finish.  And even though it is a sweet and fruity tasting tea … these flavors do not overpower the black tea base … the black tea comes through strong and I like that.

An invigorating thirst quencher!  And be sure to check out Culinary Teas’ homepage … they’ve always got specials on their tea of the week!

Our mutual love for tea and writing about it inspired us to start this blog so that we could better share this love with others.

One thing I (Anne) learned very early on in my career as a tea artist is that everyone has different preferences, and every single tea tastes differently on every single palate.  So just because one of us doesn’t happen to like a tea, doesn’t mean that YOU (the reader) will not.

We try to be as impartial as we can.  We do have our favorites.  We are human.  But we do our very best to be as fair and as honest about a tea as we can be.

You might not agree with my assessment – or with Jennifer’s assessment – of a tea.  But that’s OK… if we all liked the same exact tea – we’d only need ONE kind of tea and … wow… that sounds really boring, indeed!

What a beautiful world it is that we have so many teas to suit so many tea enthusiasts!
