Things I don’t like melon,really spicy ,blackberries,heavy hibiscus,black currants,coconut,cherry,plum,perfumey teas with too much flowers,

Precious White Peach from Teavana is a really good one I think…

Honey Vanilla and Silver Needle whites from LeafSpa. It’s great when you want a flavored white or an unflavored white- for a dessert tea, or a non dessert tea. All of Adagio’s whites I’ve found to be very good so I suggest getting both their unflavored and flavored samplers. I have not tried any of them yet- but you should hit up Upton Tea Imports for their samples. At that price you can’t go wrong:)

I just did it hot brewed in just enough water to cover the leaves then added cold water- but yeah it is awesome.

i don’t see adagio’s silver needle among your tea ratings. i love that one…

Cofftea said

I know you don’t like overly floral teas, but their Jasmine Silver Needle is good. I suggest 1 min @ 160 degrees instead of the 7 @ 180 that they suggest. That should give you a cuppa more favorable to your tastes. You could also blend it w/ a plain Silver Needle.

+1 for Adagio’s Silver Needle… good stuff.

I really like this…and…you know I’m not overly fond of Jasmine…so…there isn’t much in this imho

I really like the champagne infused ones Compass offers, too…

Thanks everyone as for adagio well I use paypal or money orders and they do not accept those so I would have to get theirs from a friend or a swap. Thanks so much for the ideas.

idk if it’s better for you but you can get their teas via amazon too. still no paypal but you got more payment options there…
