One of my all time favorite teas used to be served at the Governors’ Palace in Historical Williamsburg. When I was a teen, which was too long ago to figure out, my family and I bought tickets to tea on the lawn. The tea was steeped in china teapots served by women in period costume. It was black tea with orange peel and cloves, absolutely delicious. The only tea I can find that comes near the taste is Constant Comment by Bigelow.
Write to me with the memories invoked by your favorite teas. I’d love to hear from you.
