Tea Review: S. D. Bell's Lady Londonderry Tea


I received a generous package of tea from importer Best International Tea based in Chatham, NJ.  Today I steeped the Lady Londonderry twice: a large cup with breakfast and a smaller "afternoon cup".  The blend of "fine Assams, a little China and a touch of Ceylon" smells like dried raisins or prunes.


After steeping, the taste, without milk, is astringent but also fruity.  With (lowfat) milk, the flavor is transformed.  It retains a mild fruit sweetness but the main flavor is of dulce de leche!

You can purchase this tea here.

    Hello Hannah: I am based in NYC. Your tea selection is great. I prefer loose leaf unflavored black, green, and oolong.
