Any suggestions for a newly addicted loose-leaf tea drinker?

Hi there! Sweeteners: I use stevia. NuNaturals stevia comes in bottles with a dropper so one can feel like a mad scientist adding drops, well, okay, maybe that’s just me? I think NuNaturals has the best taste because there is no bitterness that I can discern. I actually don’t usually sweeten tea, but for chai or a lemony blend that I’d like to add honey to, I have found this stevia makes a nice sub. Cheers!

I’ve found that I don’t really like Stevia, but I’ve tried Nectresse which is a zero calorie sister brand that extracts sugar from monk fruit.

I’m fairly new to the whole leaf tea world too. I really like Adagio for getting samples for cheap and trying out new teas. They have some really good unique blends. I would definitely recommend checking them out. Also, you would be surprised how many tea shops there are around. I have been frequenting a tea shop called “The Loose Teas.” So just have fun with it and try out as many as you can. You will quickly develop your taste for many more teas.

I work for Rishi Tea, and would recommend you check out www.rishi-tea.com. We are located in Milwaukee, WI. Their customer service is outstanding, they have an 877 number you can call Mon-Fri 9am-6pm, and you will speak with a human who would be glad to answer any questions. Have a nice day!
