From Across the Pond

My mailbox recently contained a surprise package from a lovely couple in England that I met through a mutual friend at Sweet Remembrances. This package of English Breakfast tea is from a company called England, and contains 15 teabags of black tea. This blend is a combination of a powerful newcomer Rwandan, a gutsy Assam and a mellow Ceylon tea and after a 3 minute steep with boiling water, brews into a nice hearty tea described as being a balanced, malty, and zesty alliance. The tea is very tasty, a smooth black tea, but in addition, it is the packaging that is interesting and engaging. The tea is not packaged in ordinary tea bags but rather biodegradable tea temples, a spacious, silky, transparent bag that allows maximum room for perfect infusion. They also boast that the tea temples include whole leaf only, not the dust found in regular tea bags.

Also noted on the package is that this tea is especially good for lethargic Monday mornings. Indeed.

Thank you Marilyn!
