Oh, honey! I love the sweet profile and luscious mouthfeel of this tea! Such an enjoyable cup. I am always surprised when I get to the end of my cup, because it goes down sooooooo easy. It’s like liquid heaven gold :)

Many thanks to Lady Londonderry for this amazing treat!

Dear JacquelineM, I am new here but I am not new to the pleasures of this wonderful beverage. I have purchased from Harney and just ordered fro Dragon Tea House and Uptons. Could you please recommend some other places? Thank you kindly….

I love Harney & Sons and Upton Tea Imports. I order most of my teas from Harney and one of my favorite teas in the world (Rose Congou) is from Upton. What are your favorite kinds of teas? If you like Chinese teas, Silk Road Teas has some excellent ones. http://www.silkroadteas.com/servlet/StoreFront My most recent order was to Zhi Tea. I am so excited to try their Gong Fu Black! http://www.zhitea.com/black-tea/organic-gong-fu-black.html

I see you are from Margate NJ – I am from Collingswood NJ! I’ve visited Margate many summers because my aunt had a house there when I was growing up. Say hello to Lucy the Elephant for me!

For the last few years I have been on a steady diet of Lung Ching and Mao Feng. I decided it was time to get a little more of a pick me up. I have always enjoyed teas from China. I have a friend who is from Anhui and this friend has got me some awesome greens. It’s time to expand my horizons. I just ordered a Ti Kuan Yin and a Keemun Mao Feng from Uptons. They seem a bit cheaper than Harney. Also a Lu Shan from Dragon Tea House. I saw Norwood Pratt enjoying this tea on a YouTube film. I’m now going to check out zhitea’s store. thank you again….

Bio

I love to cook, bake, read, paint, knit, do needlework, and garden. I need my coffee, but I LOVE my tea. I work at an Art School, and attend a large public university doing post-bac work (my BA is in English). I’m interested in the liminal spaces between art and craft, the academic and the practical, the individual and community, and the old and the new. I’m currently exploring these ideas through the disciplines of education, literature, history, and psychology.

I enjoy writing tasting notes, but have decided not to numerically rate teas as of 9/14/10. For an explanation, see my looooong tasting note about Mountain Malt from the Simple Leaf.

My favorites:
Chinese black teas
A good “milk and sugar” English style black
Earl Grey (classic, and in all variations!)
Vanilla teas (classic, and in all variations!)
Jasmine, Rose, Violet and other froofy, flowery teas!
An Occasional Oolong
Flavored Rooibos
Herbal Tisanes
