Your daily go to tea
What tea do you drink most each day?
For me, it is Ahmad Tea, Earl Grey Green. I buy it by the pound, loose – or by the case, bagged.
I have 2. Matcha (twice daily- once hot as long as weather permits, and once w/ my OJ) and Mayan Chocolate Chai (I buy it by the pound) which I have w/ milk either hot or cold.
There are pink peppercorns in it, but by far most of the pepperyness comes from the cayenne pepper. It’s funny, I don’t like things w/ too much black pepper, but I really like cayenne.:)
Alas, my daily go-to tea was The Simple Leaf’s Dawn, which is now apparently defunct. So I am now going from tea to tea. Happily my Sinharaja arrived a few moments ago so I’ll be able to go back to that for a while. It used to be my go-to tea before Dawn arrived in my life.
Right now it is probably Teas Etc Golden Monkey. But it changes periodically. A few weeks ago, I was drinking 52teas Strawberry Zabaglione.
Upton’s Organic China Black FOP.
I usually pick one tea for the day and make as many infusions as i can… especially since i drink tea after 7pm.
right now, my go-to tea is Da Hong Pao by harney & son. I’m running low and need to restock is so i’ve been using Teavana’s Body + Mind instead.
Kathryn Ann- have you tried ManTeas’ Beer Tea? I can get 12! Pu erhs may be good for you as well.
12 cups out of a black tea? that’s crazy :) I’m not a huge black tea drinker though, and i’ve actually never had a pu erh tea before…. Usually if i can get like 3~4 infusions out of tea leaves thats enough for me.
Kathryn Ann- that’s the thing. Aside from chais or dessert teas, I don’t like blacks either… but this stuff is amazing- you should at least check out my tasting notes on it. Since you aren’t a black tea person I’d suggest a sheng pu erh vs. shu.
I have 2. My go-to morning tea is Black Silk from Element Tea. It is so smooth and gets me going in the morning. My go-to afternoon tea is Pink Sonoma, also from Element Tea. Can you tell I like Element Tea? The Pink Sonoma is just a refreshing and delicious white tea that I love drinking around 2 or 3 in the afternoon. Of course, I drink lots of different teas in between. :)
