Tea Sample: Tea at the Empress
bagged tea, but filled with a larger leaf than most bags. It seeped to a
rich chestnut color. It had a delicious mild but fully rounded flavor

tongue and a little almond at the finish. The blend is top secret but my
guess would be mostly Assam with perhaps some Ceylon an maybe a little

Quote of the Day:
'I get up at six, so ungenteel am I grow," wrote Mrs Vigor, wife of the
minister resident in St. Petersburg in 1730, 'have done looking about,
and giving orders in the family, to come to breakfast by eight. When
that is over I spend an hour with my instructor in French; then retire
to my room, and either work, or read, 'till twelve, when I dress for
dinner at one; after dinner we chat a little; the I work, or read again,
'till eight, at which hour we always sup, and go to bed at ten.'"
