If you could only have one tea for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Imperial Breakfast Summer Blend by Verdant Tea. It has Willow Grove Pu’er Nuggets,Big Red Robe, Laoshan Black, Aged White Silver Needle and Jin Jun Mei. A perfect blend of the best.
I don’t know how you’re supposed to choose, but right now I think it would either be Zen Tea’s Coconut Oolong.
Of course if that was the only tea I had, but I had lots of, I would be interested in swaps. :)
It would simply have to be Badaling Yellow. To me, it’s better than the best eau de vie. Lee
I always say peppermint, but I’ll go for proper tea this time. I think it’d be Wild Yunnan Black from Davids as it’s hard to over-steep and I could always add other stuff I found lying around to mix it up a bit,
Peppermint is great, too and I enjoy it from time to time as I do raspberry. I’ll have to try the Wild Yunnan Black from David’s and I’ll check out the website. Thanks for the tip. Because I suffer from migraines often times a good STRONG cup of tea will diminish the intensity though not the event itself. Do follow me if you like as I do like recommendations. Lee.
I’m the kind of person who loves variety, so I’d probably cry if I could only drink one tea for the rest of time.
I’m half Persian and grew up drinking ceylon tea with cardamom, so I’d have to stick with that. I think the tea I would miss the most would be chai! It comes in close second to Persian tea. :)
Most interesting your being of Persian descent. I’m of Scots/Irish descent.
Only recently have I appreciated the different types of teas and am very much a novice and so willing to learn from people such as all of you. I just switched from the Bandaling Yellow for the day to a nice eau de vie frambiose. Is there possibly a better combination? LOL Lee
P.S. You must share with me some of the types and names of the Persian teas.
Thank you for the mention of caramel match. I’m sorry to admit, I’ve never had matcha. Hope to hear from you again. Lee
