I found this "tea-room" listed online. High hopes were set for this establishment as it's located in one of the best hotels here in Cincinnati. Will The Cricket Lounge live up to its pedigree?
It wasn't long ago I didn't know there was a difference in "Darjeeling" teas. Man, oh man... have I been missing out! This Orthodox Darjeeling is a little more subtle than most I've had.
I'm often skeptical of tropical fruits being mixed with the more subtle flavors inherent in well devised green teas. Call me paranoyed for my favorite base teas. This mix from 52teas is well blended using real fruit pieces!
By now you might realize that Harney & Sons is one of my favorite tea brands. I've covered quite a few of their teas here already and you're assuredly going to see more. That being said, I approached this book with a clear mind and very little "fan boy" mentality, and believe I've come up with a review from a book I was ecstatic to pick up.
I stumbled upon Fully Loaded Tea when looking for methods of liquoring up my favorite cuppa. The story of this young company is inspiring and invigorating in itself, but their blends are of an uncommon breed. While reviewing brands as a whole is certainly something I do, it's not what this post is about. No, instead it's on the most interesting blend the delectable entrepreneurial duo has to offer!
