“Anyone who has used that comforting phrase ‘a nice cup of tea’ invariably means Indian tea.” – George Orwell
Darjeeling is the tea that inspired me to begin my beautiful journey through the wide world of tea and will always reign supreme in my tea pantry! My first tea love, so to speak. I positively adore a fine Darjeeling – Especially a great muscatel second flush!
Indian tea, in general, is my overall preference. After Darjeeling, Assam tea, especially a fine second flush Assam tea, is a favorite. Winter flush Nilgiri tea is another Indian tea that I quite enjoy.
Apart from Indian tea, I cannot resist a good Keemun or high grown Ceylon tea.
I really love Earl Grey and vanilla flavored tea blends – Must haves in my tea pantry!
Love my herbal teas – Rooibos fanatic!
I prefer to drink organic tea whenever possible.
