What was the first tea that turned you onto drinking tea?
Earl grey was my first favorite. Now I’ve graduated from random bagged earl grey to loose leaf everything (green, black, oolong, white, pu-erh, etc.). Earl grey caught me, everything else kept me.
Darjeeling! It was probably bagged from Twinings, but it still opened my eyes to the world of tea!
It was actually a tisane. I was really surprised to see a Teavana in the mall (I’d never seen a tea shop before) and asked them if they had anything caffeine free. They let me sample a bunch of Rooibos and the chai hooked me instantly. Still my favorite “tea” even though I’ve tried dozens of types and flavors.
Pu-erh! I took a tea class at the local health food grocery and was introduced to it. Still a favorite!
My family always had just regular black tea in the fridge all the time. I used to sweeten it, but when I stopped drinking soda, I drank it unsweetened and just enjoyed it more. Now it’s all teas and I drink it practically every day. There’s SO much out there!
Either the individually packaged Yellow Label tea my Mum bought JUST FOR ME when I was a teenager (I know, I know) or the always beloved mint (my family always had some boiling on the stove, for fragrance rather than drinking but I am convinced it had something to do with my mint tea love).
Strawberry Slender pu-erh from Teavana. Smelled like strawberries but tasted like pu-erh. I graduated to taking it as pure leaf without the fruity-tootiness and branched out from there into other genres, but pu-erh is still my first love.
That would be Tie Guan Yin from Tealuxe. Still one of my favorites.
