This is a sweeter, gentler alternative to PG Tips :) and is a particular favorite of my husband, who ordered a ridiculous bulk quantity on Amazon. The Bigelow folks don’t disclose what kind of black tea they use, but it has a Ceylon-ish feel to it, but with enough caffeine to make you know you drank it.

(What’s a Ceylon-ish feel? Um…second tenor in the choir, not bass. James Taylor, not Joe Cocker. A well-used copper pot. Don’t I analyze my teas scientifically?)

Somebody asked me once when I became a tea junkie; I think it dates back to college when I needed caffeine for a 7 a.m. class but chose not to do coffee. My favorite teapot is a medium-sized Brown Betty given to me by my Mema; the painted flowers are chipping off, but the size and feel is perfect. I rejoice when I get a morning to brew a pot of loose tea starting with a kettle; not a bag and a hot pot.
