What is your favourite tea and blend?

Recommended Posts

I like white tea and oolong. Especially black Da Hong Pao is one of my favorite teas.

If you want to make correct oolong, don't forget about temperature of the water. If you want to prepare Jin Xuan, the temperature of water should be 80 degrees, so, it would be better to use special electric kettle where you can choose yourself necessary temperature. After preparation you can drink it cold and even use ice maker, if you want.

Atkinson’s have some great tea blends.

 

Their earl grey is one of the best I’ve had. The peppermint is also very good as is the Lancaster for a typical “English” blend tea.

I'm always going through phases, now I'm into Kusmi's BB Detox (Green tea with grapefruit). Every now and then I do go into a green tea phase that lasts until I get so sick of that flavor I cannot stand it, than back to a classic breakfast and so on.

We have really been getting into serious teas the past few years, the highlight of which was an amazing order from Yunnan Sourcing with some fantastic teas. Very much a novice with pu-er, but I find it intriguing. Love black teas, all manner of green and oolong all equally. Confirmed rooibos addict also.
