I have always been curious about tea, but I didn’t give in to a full fledged obsession until 2010. I’ve enjoyed every new discovery, and my garden has loved the mini mountain of tea leaves that’s been added to the soil! Of all of the wonderful teas I’ve tried some of my all time favorites are:
- First Flush Darjeelings
- Nepali Black Teas
- Earl Grey Creme
- Gooey Butter Cake (52 Teas)
- Queen Catherine (Harney and Sons)
While drinking tea I enjoy indulging in my other passions which include reading (the classics and mysteries), music, gardening, and crochet. I have a small business called the Leaf Street Thread Company, and I’m excited to have many of my handmade items sold at stores in the Philadelphia area.
My Rating System:
100-95 = Teas I actively seek out and keep in my pantry. If you are a guest in my home chances are I will offer you one or all of these teas. Also, if/when these teas are discontinued I openly mourn their loss.
94-85 = Teas I truly like, often have in my pantry, and sometimes restock. These are my variety-is-the-spice-of-life teas.
84-75 = They’re good teas and I enjoy drinking them on occasion.
74-65 = These teas are ok, but not really my thing.
64-55 = meh.
54-45 = I will if I have no other option.
44 and below = Coffee, please.
