“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 good muscatel second flush!
Indian tea is my overall preference. After my much beloved Darjeeling teas, Assam tea, especially a great second flush single estate Assam, is my favorite Indian tea. Winter flush Nilgiri tea is another Indian tea that I quite enjoy.
Apart from Indian tea, I cannot resist a good Yunnan Dianhong or Keemun tea. I do enjoy Ceylon teas – Especially in blends and for iced tea.
I really love Earl Grey tea blends as well as vanilla, caramel, almond and floral flavored teas. Tend to enjoy breakfast blends too. Love a nice English or Irish Breakfast tea.
I quite like various herbal teas – Crazy about rooibos!
Organic tea is my preference whenever possible.
