Assam Black Tea




I came home from work today and found a wonderful gift in my mail box. It was from an old reenactment and tea lover friends. She sent my over 5 pounds of whole tea. It was a very cold day here in New England, so I rushed upstairs to put me on a pot to warm me up. She was very generous.I had much to decide from. Some I had never heard of and some I always wanted to try. She sent me Assam(Black Tea),Lichee Tea(black),Sechung Oolong,Pinhead Gunpowder(Green)and Lapsang Souchong (Smoked).
I had never heard nor had the smoked tea. I was feeling very adventurous, tried it and enjoyed it immensely. "What a treat"!. I have enough tea here to throw a fabulous tea party.

Valentine's Day is one of my favorite days of the year. It was one of the most celebrated  in the Victorian era outside of Christmas...
