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!
