My fav green tea so far. Does fine for long, boiling steeps (IMO, although I think I may have been born unable to taste bitterness) to create a cup worthy of a cold, early morning.

Preparation
Boiling 8 min or more
Cofftea

WOW! I’ve never done mine for longer than a min and hotter than 180. I may have to try that though. Although not my favorite- right up there and a WONDERFUL tea, I completely agree.

Got a sample and was sold on oolongs immediately. On the light side, green, and a bit sweet.

Nice, smooth tea to wake up with. Also makes a tasty iced tea.

Assams do make kick-ass iced teas.

Delicious when cold-brewed, which is how I usually take it. Often with a little mint.

Funny you should say that because that’s basically what Morrocan Mint tea is. :D

This was my first rooibos, and it sold me on the whole plant. Wonderful on its own, or blended with another tea.

Easily my favorite earl grey. No need for any sweeteners or milk, though it won’t ruin it if you do go in for those sorts of things. This is my new preferred black tea.

I can get 4-5 good steeps out of this before it starts getting noticeably weak, and the flavor is great. I actually like this a little bit more than the Iron Goddess. Wonderful blend at a wonderful price.

Bio

Got into tea when I scaled back my drinking and fell in love.

I’m not a super-taster, so if I can’t taste the raspberry infusion just assume that it’s probably actually there.

Oh yeah, and I like my tea absurdly strong – think, like, Godzilla-strong – so my brewing recommendations aren’t for the feint of heart.
