I always turn to Darjeelings without thinking, or thinking they’re just another black tea. Then I notice how light they often are and — oh my — refreshing. This one is lively indeed, fresh, and I dig the clever Ineeka bag contraptions (once I figured them out).

Not cheap, but not too shabby either. I like greens in the afternoons, and this is so yummy.

Melon seed…? I’ve heard of melon flavored teas before, but not melon seed flavored.

The name “melon seed” has to do with the shape of the leaf, not the flavor. Just pure green goodness!

Green tea and lemongrass, just the summery lift I needed on a winter’s day. (And not just any green tea, Ceylon green at that. Interesting.) Come summer, this will make a lovely iced pitcher.

I’m burning through my tin of this stuff awfully quickly. I stare into the tea cabinet and wonder what to brew, and I never think I want the Singapore Breakfast. Then I smell the vanilla, and it’s over. The blend of green and black teas is even and surprisingly stout, and the vanilla on top makes it sing. Now the indoor respite is perfect. Look at those poor fools outside the window, tromping through the old snow. Nah nah nee boo boo.

China is the land of green, I know, but I love the blacks. This was a gift from a co-worker, and it’s keeping me wide-eyed and alert during my Christmas shift today. Brews up dark and hearty, with a real caffeine kick.

A new basic green for my work afternoons. Sipping and staring out the snowless window (have fun, East Coast!). I love the melon-seed greens. So bright and vibrant, cheerful and reliable. Now I need a melon-seed person …

Well I’m impressed. A balance of earthy pu-erh, mixed with chrysanthemum that adds a not-quite-oily heft. Energizing and relaxing. Pretty awesome.

Begging your pardon: This tea promises and delivers a rose garden. Strong rosy scent, light rosy flavor plus a hint of chardonnay. Full review at http://bit.ly/3B8CT1 Thanks, Eva!

I’ve been freaking out office mates all day with this flowering tea in a glass mug. It looks a little Star Trek, it’s green tea tentacles undulating in the cup, like it could climb out and suck your brain. That’s one way to look at it I guess. It’s decent green tea with a rosy jasmine scent, too.
