I am a tea snob: I usually buy varietals, not blends, and buy it loose, never tea bags. But I found myself in Rome and looked everywhere for a good Ceylon-type or Darjeeling tea that would be a good robust, bright brew that I could drink with milk, or in a weaker proparation, without. To my great surprise and delight I found Hampstead’s Organic Fairtrade (already two pluses for it in my book) English Breakfast blend. It’s now my favorite of this type. I hope I can find it back in the USA. Great aroma in Rome’s very hard water, or Carolina’s clayey soft water.
