I should probably stop picking this tea up. Not because it’s a bad tea but when you’ve got a stupidly long list of amazing teas from Stacy, at some point, SOME of them need to fall off the list. IE. it’s a fantastic tea! but there are 10 more amazing, incredible teas that i love EVEN MORE from stacy, that this one is just not amazing enough haha. or at least only enough to get every few months. I enjoyed the sweetness of this cup compared to the other 2 teas i drank at work today. It was a good contrast to them and made me enjoy this even more today. Sadly, it’s almost gone…but that means room for more stacy teas! woot woot!

Yeah, I totally know that feeling! How do you narrow down the very best?

VariaTEA

If I were, hypothetically, thinking about branching out into straight black teas, which of Stacy’s would you recommend the most? Just out of curiosity.

VariaTEA – what are some blacks that you have liked of the few you’ve tried? Sort of depends on what you’ve found “drinkable” in the past :) (from other companies)

VariaTEA

So far I have really enjoyed Yezi’s Jin Pin and Taiwan Tea Craft’s Sun Moon Lake Assam

Sil

So i’d try the PTA (premium taiwanese assam…) personally i prefer the NON upgraded version but they are both entirely different teas IMO.

I love black lotus as well…taiwanese mountain black you’d probably like given that you enjoyed sun moon lake..beyond that, i can send you samples or give you more input once i try all the new blacks that stacy has added… i haven’t had a chance to order them yet to try them all..i’m falling behind!

Bio

So no real clue what to write about myself here. A friend got me into drinking loose tea and it’s something I thoroughly enjoy though I have nowhere near the experience that many folks on the boards seem to have.

My other interests are cycling, reading, board games, disney cruises, world of warcraft and dancing – in no particular order. I love travelling and am currently working on trying to get my other half to as many place in the world as possible.
