Steepster Select December Giveaway
English Breakfast tea from Celestial Seasonings. I drank it with sugar + milk while at summer camp. It was delicious!
Vanilla black tea from Twinnings was the first one I liked. Then I found Adagio and ordered their Vanilla and fall completely in love with black teas.
BTW When will Steepster Select be available to outside US? EU anyone? Please? ^^
My family have always been consistent tea drinkers, but it was my grandparent’s love of Tetley’s Orange Pekoe that turned me into a tea drinker. I was never allowed to drink coffee as a child, and so my grandparents would let me have tea with them instead. I still don’t ever drink coffee, but tea has become quite the addiction. To this day, Tetley’s Orange Pekoe is the tea that I turn to if I’m homesick or not feeling so great. It always reminds me of home and the comfort of family.
“tea” (usually random herbs or garlic/cloves) was my mom’s go-to home remedy for any ailments. The first one I actually liked was a eucalyptus tea that she made for nasal congestion.
Wow…having to dig back in the cobwebby recesses of memory…but back in high school, I’m thinking I started on good ol’ Bigelow Constant Comment and various Celestial Seasonings flavors (whatever they had available in the early 80’s).
Funnily enough, it was Celestal Seasonings herbal blends (I do not drink caffeine). They weren’t that great, and I just knew there had to be something better out there, which prompted me to branch out.
I think the tea that really piqued my interest in tea was Choice Twig tea. It was amazing. I loved it, and now that I’m thinking about it, have a bit of a yen for it. Tea before that had typically been either plain old grocery store brand orange pekoe (for iced tea) or whatever tea the Chinese restaurant we were eating at at the moment happened to serve. Tea was essentially nonexistent for me as a serious interest until I tried that twig tea.
