I didn’t have a specific tea, to be honest. I simply wanted to drink something hot, and coffee is disgusting. But the first tea I bought myself was Teavana’s Moroccan Mint. I got roped into buying a giant tin of it, so I still have that same tea in my cupboard. I was instantly hooked on greens, though; it’s been a beautiful friendship ever since.

Lapsang Souchong – It was different from any tea that I had had before. The smokiness reminded me of scotch!

Starbuck’s Chai, although I’m not sure if that counts, since they use a syrup. :/

If not that one, then it was Earl Grey Creme from Teavana. The way the tea smelled when it was in the tin, and the way it tasted like it already had cream in it without having to add anything… my best friend avidly watched my face as I took my first sip and blurted out “isn’titfantastic??” I’ll never forget it.

My first favorite hot tea-like beverage was the Celestial Seasonings variety pack in my freshman year of college (although since then I have developed a significant dislike for hibiscus), but my first tea was Taj Mahal orange pekoe.

I think the first tea that really made a tea drinker of me was the Mark T. Wendell Hu-kwa Lapsang Souchong tea. Someone left a tin of it in the house where I was living in 1969 and I fell in love with it.

As a child, Mom served us Lipton with sugar and milk. As an adult, I began drinking Earl Grey with honey and milk in the AM (still do). Once, a friend from China served me tea in a proper Chinese-style “ceremony”. Don’t know the type of tea, but it was so incredibly rich and full-bodied that it was reminiscent of drinking a fine cognac or bourbon. I was amazed and hooked. From then on, I have searched out the huge variety of teas and I enjoy every minute.
