Longtime tea drinker, lifelong tea student. Lapsang Souchong started it for me. My preference is for single origin teas. Aged oolongs and sheng puerhs being a couple favorites. That said, I will always have a spot in my heart for a cup of PG Tips with a splash of soy milk!
I like fruit and spice, but prefer to keep those relegated to herbal blends. Herbals will always have a place in my cupboard for late night sipping.
