This is one of my favourite teas. I grew up drinking Chinese tea black and strong so I’m not always big on the floral/flower mixes (looking at you David’s Tea). I do love me a good chai, and this tea even with its lack of distinct spices, reminds me of it. It tastes wonderful with milk, but I’ll brew it strong hot and cold without anything. The saffron is light and so is the hint of orange. Wonderful tea. I’ve been trying to make mine last a long time because I no longer have access to it.

I like my tea unsweetened and strong. This is due mostly to my upbringing. I like the second steep almost as much as the first.

Sweetener: Almost never. Prefer honey or even maple syrup if I must.
Milk: Chai definitely, orange pekoe, some other blends, but in general, I skimp on the milk too.

In the summer, I brew ice tea cold in the fridge, no sweetner of course.

Favourites: Not a definitive list. I grew up on Chinese teas so I tend to favour them.

Blacks: Oolong, Assam, Ti Kuan Yin, Yunnan
Greens: Lung Ching, Sencha
Blends: Earl Grey, Chai, Lady Grey, Prince of Wales
Tisanes: Mint, Licorice, Honeybush
