What I make first would depend on the weather. The colder it is, the more I want chai, so if it were a day like today, I’d start with the Golden Moon Kashmiri Chai. If it’s balmier, I’d have to choose between the TeaFrog Darjeeling or the Andrews & Dunham Ceylon — probably the Darjeeling, since I’ve got some good organic Ceylon in my tea cupboard right now, but I’ve been out of Darjeeling for a while.

If I win, the first tea I’d made would be any kind of Earl Grey I could get my hands on, because it’s that time of year for a good hot cup of Earl Grey. And then I would play with the matcha set

This is the tea-lover’s holy grail! I’d be interested in brewing up a pot of the Golden Moon Kashmiri Chai for my first treat. Then, I’d move onto a gunpowder green.

Peppermint tea. It’s my one true tea. Never needs sugar, always refreshing.

Your one true tea? That’s ironic because it isn’t a true tea.:)

I’d make Tao of Tea Jade Oolong! So much floral lilac character. Mmmmmm.

If I won I would drink any kind of black tea. That teapot looks unbelievably gorgeous.

I keep changing my mind on what tea to brew first, but given how gorgeous the pot is, and that the leaves would be visible, I would have to choose something like Blooming Tiger or one of the other flower teas I have that are meant to be looked at, too! I have a collection of these balls of tea that “bloom” in the cup or pot but rarely use them because all my pots are opaque!
