|This blend was a pleasant surprise. Medium body with a balanced smoky earthiness to it.|
||Best of both tea worlds
|I inherited enjoying this choice tea mix from my Great Aunt Tom from Huntington Long Island. She would prepare a pot twice a day, morning and tea-time, and believed the health benefits of green coupled with the taste of black couldnt be beat. She would also read the leaves left in your cup if you wanted her to. Always a bit scary. She died in 1996 at age 92. I took over her account at Simpson and Vail she opened in the 30s or 40s of the last century and have enjoyed drinking this brew ever since. I drink it English style with a little milk and sweetner.|
