Warm, rich, and dark, this herb-and-spice tea blend is a delicious alternative to more traditional Indian chais.

ETA: Don’t try this one with a tomato-based soup. Oy. shudder

A lovely light Taiwanese oolong, delightful for a mid-afternoon cuppa. Nice aroma and flavor even after several infusions, and a beautiful light green liquid result.

This one is mellower than Floating Leaves’ House Black, with a warm gold tone to the leaves. The scent is sweeter and lighter and the liquid is a paler color than House Black. I wouldn’t call this delicate, except in comparison. A nice afternoon tea with half and half.

This is one of my go-to favorites from Floating Leaves, strong and malty. It stands two to three infusions quite well and is my standby tea for mornings or when I need a good cuppa to help me stay awake. It has a nice, round flavor and a full body. The scent is deep and dark with just a hint of tobacco to it, but there’s no smokiness as you might find in a Lapsang Souchong. It takes half and half very well. I can’t speak for how it tastes sweetened as I never add sweet to my tea, but I imagine if you like that, it would be quite tasty.
