My Morning Cup of Tea

My favorite morning cup of tea is Bruce Richardson's Elmwood Inn Fine Teas Mayor's Cup. It is a blend of Ceylon, Darjeeling and Assam teas. I like the smooth and not-too-strong taste of this blend of black teas. I drink my tea without the addition of milk or sugar.

Notes from Tea 2009 Calendar:
"When buying loose-leaf teas, buy little and often rather than risk having larger quantities spoil at home."
"Adding milk to tea may block the normal, healthful effects of tea that protects against cardiovascular disease."

Linda: I have never tried any of Bruce's blends but have spoken to him on thephone many times since we sell their books. Hiswife was of course an incredible pastry chef whose recipes I adore!

The Mayor's Cup blend is similar to the Babington's Special blend, which I am enjoying right now.

Lots of tea parties here on this page. Not wanting to sound pedantic but cream teas can use any cream, clotted or double or whipped.

Glad you are enjoying the Turnham Malpass books. I am on 7 now. I stopped at 6 for a while thinking I did not want to get through the whole set too quickly and then after finishing another novel I began to think that if I left the other 4 forlater then I may not remember totally who some of the characters were as there were many changes. There are No. 11 and 12 out now in the newsagents. My daughter bought them.
Linda seems to be a popular name for my blogger visitors. Confusing until I visit the site and see who it was.

Ooooo, I really, really like this tea as well and haven't had it for AGES. I think I'll treat myself.

Very true, Milk kills all the antioxidant properties in tea, disappointing but true.
