I have recently discovered Teavana, to the detriment of my pocketbook. They have an online site as well as a storefront near me. They have some very yummy premium flavored blends that are like dessert in a cup, without any sweetening, as well as some serious teas that are fine cigar pairings.

Default Re: What tea are you Drinking?

I love loose teas....especially now in the summer!! I also have a Teavana store near me as well, but I find that the tea smells so potent in the container and then I have to beg it to taste the same when it hit's my mouth!! Does anyone have a loose tea or tea recipe that they can recommend that tastes as good as it smells?? I know that the water dilutes it, but I am one for a lot of taste in my tea!! Let me know!!

Thanks!

Yes. Follow the directions carefully for temperature of water and length of steeping time. Then experiment based on how well you like the results you get, changing one variable at a time. Rapid hot infusion will get you one kind of result, slower cooler infusion another kind of result. Try a cold refrigerator infusion overnight and see how that expresses the various flavor components in a way you may find more similar to the aroma.

"Tea espresso" through an Aeropress or similar device is something I like a lot; give it a try.

This stuff is great. A family of Mennonites grow this stuff in their garden and sell it at their produce stand.

From Twinings I like Earl Grey with a lemon wedge, English Breakfast with a spash of light cream or whole milk, and broken leaf Assam Mangalam, black. I only buy loose leaf tea.
