This tea is amazing. We keep having to refill it because it’s the most comforting, strong-flavored, consistent earl grey I’ve found. Love.

Delicious in a foamy green tea latte on a hot day. Before the chill and rain struck DC, I wanted two of these per day. Matcha + milk + honey + ice and whew! Delicious, creamy, green, healthy, refreshing.

Sweet, spicy, and warming. Purchased it on a rainy day in Dupont circle, wandering around to escape the sudden pre-summer chill after work… I loved it so much I took some home with me! Delish – strong taste of cinnamon and ginger, but with a mild sweetness that remains with you long after you finish your cup.

Tea reminds me of home and family. Black tea with milk and honey was a gift of love growing up.

I’ve since gained an appreciation for Japanese green tea and matcha, chai (brewed Indian-style in milk with a very strong black tea and spices), Kashmiri tea, and tisanes. My tastes definitely have broadened since I stopped having sugar in my tea.

Since joining steepster, my world has been transformed by Laoshan Black 1st Picking – can’t believe an unflavored tea can taste like cocoa! It made me wonder what the black tea I’ve been drinking all these years is. My current favorite is Metropolitan Tea’s Cream Earl Grey.

I also have really enjoyed the tisanes – especially Roasted Almond by Capital Teas, which I keep bringing with me to share with others.

My tea tastes are also heavily influenced by the places I’ve been… ginger tea reminds me of Southeast Asia, sage tea reminds me of Syria, very strongly brewed black tea reminds me of Iraqi family, milk chai reminds me of India… I love to rekindle the tastes of places, from home to far away, in my cup.

Loves- matcha, rose, cardamom, bergamot, saffron, almond sencha green, cinnamon, ginger, and chocolate.

I do NOT like chamomile, rooibos, genmaicha, or flavored green tea, and I have an odd relationship with hibiscus, oolong, and licorice (I like them only on select occasions).
