I’m drinking this now and I’m disappointed. The Super Grade was so flavorful I thought this Superior Organic (BA20) would be heaven in a cup. It’s not. In fact, I think my old store brand Red Rooibos tea bags had more flavor than this. This will go in the trash with the tea bags. I’ll stick with the Super Grade (BA14).

Preparation
Boiling 8 min or more

A few weeks ago I read “The Ultimate Tea Diet” and I began drinking more tea. I’ve always used tea bags from the local supermarket, so trying loose leaf teas for the first time was quite an experience. I don’t think I can go back to tea bags.

Loose leaf is so much more economical because I can get 3-4 cups from the same leaves. The only green tea I like is Jasmine, but that’s the same when I used tea bags. Loose leaf green tea didn’t change my mind on that, but the search continues. I have fallen in love with Darjeeling and Assam. A first for me. I usually got Oolong tea bags.

I have to say I’m having the time of my life learning about the different loose leaf teas. :)

I’ve been ordering from Upton Tea Imports because of their sample sizes. I don’t want to buy a larger amount until I know I like it.

8/5/2011: I’ve recently placed orders with KTeas and look forward to buying teas from other companies. I’ll probably get most of my tea from upton because I can order a sample and try it before buying a bag or tin. I like that a lot. Upton also has an order form you can print out. Very cool! :))
