My first loose leaf tea experience was with a green tea at Todd & Holland’s Tea Merchants shop in Forest Park, IL. This green tea is bright and aromatic and truly delicious. I really get into the flavorings but this tea simply does not need them. Grassy and robust, I salavate when brewing (too much info possibly?) I also love the education that comes with stopping in and sipping tea. That is where I learned that I like early picked green tea right after the rains (said in the most snobbish voice I could muster). It is pricey thus not making it a 100 but worth the money for such a quality tea.
