When I was working my way through my Tealet sampler, I discovered that orange pekoe can be delicious when done right, so now I kind of keep an eye out for O.P.s in general.

This one does not measure up to the Plucky teas from Tealet — it’s not as rich, not as laden with honey and brown sugar notes — but that said, it’s still quite a nice black tea, great for a fuss-free morning cup. It comes across a bit like an English breakfast, but isn’t quite as strong or as acidic.

Happiness Is:
green tea
black tea
lots and lots of oolong!
vanilla things

Not Really My Style:
spices (except for ginger. ginger rocks)
chai (because, you know, the spices)
rooibos (I don’t get it. Everyone seems psyched for it. Not me).
those smoky teas, like lapsang souchong, though once in a while I’ll need something really strong and then I like them.
