I’m a long-time Anglophile and a relatively new tea drinker, slowly building up my knowledge of the deliciousness that is a cuppa.
I love robust black teas that I can drink with milk. I’m a milk-in-first kind of gal. A strong cuppa is one of my favorite ways to start the day. My absolute favorite is Barry’s Gold Blend. I am also very fond of herbal teas, especially soothing blends before bedtime. I enjoy green tea for its health benefits, although I have yet to master a proper brew for it. I especially like jasmine green tea. I am not very familiar with white, rooibos, honeybush, or pu-erh teas, although I hope to taste more of them. I am awfully fond of rooibos with milk and sugar, but it has been quite some time since I found one as good as my first cup.
I am always on the lookout for delicious, affordable teas, especially those that are fair trade and/or organic.
