Black Magnolia Tea

 Strolling down a country trail on a sultry day in late spring.
Smelling the grass as it bakes in the sun.
 The tea in my cup reminds me of a smooth summer day.
A day to languish by the river,
letting it flow gently down my throat.
 By no means is it bitter.

A light flavor until it hits the back of the throat
and then it sits there, light caramel/fruity, not sweet but romantic.
 Do you ever have this romance with a cup of tea?
Does it tingle in your thoughts like a sultry day in late spring?
 Do you just want to savor the day?
Well Black Magnolia Oolong Tea from The Great Mississippi Tea Co.
is such a tea. I have waited a long time to be able to savor this tea
and savoring it I am doing.
On the package from The Cultured Cup in Dallas, Texas,
it says "This hand-plucked tea is complex with notes of apricot,
honeysuckle & honey." "The best USA grown tea!"
I would agree!
How exciting to finally get my hands and then my taste buds
on this special cup of tea.
Good job to the growers at The Great Mississippi Tea Company.

What a delightful tea you've set up, Marilyn, and the tea flavor sounds oh so tasty! I must get myself to the Cultured Cup very soon.

What a cute green tea pot. You have set a lovely table for one on a nice Spring day. The only time I have Oolong tea is at my favorite Chinese Restaurant, and it's oh, so good. : )

A good rest of the week to you, Marilyn.

What a beautiful setting -- that photo is staged just perfectly. Now, I hope after you did the photo, you sat down and savored that fine tea in the manner it deserved!
