I am going to be drinking Taylors of Harrogate Yorkshire Tea. My daughter phoned from town to say she had found a store with a promotion that made it quite inexpensive, so I asked her to buy a dozen boxes (960 bags). That should last a month or two.

Been consuming quite a bit of Luzianne Tea in the morning, and Twinings Earl Grey Tea in the evening.

For a sweetner, Stevia in the Raw packs...

My go-to is Al-Ghazaleen, a loose-leaf Ceylonese tea from Sri Lanka.

Bumping this up. I've been drinking a lot of tea lately. Puerh mostly, lots of Raw/Sheng/Green (whatever you prefer calling it).

Favorite lately has been a 2007 variety out of the mengku factory; mu ye chun 002.
Very good stuff, and can still be had for 30 bucks a cake which is a dang good price.

picked up some Just Make Taiwan Tea oolong.

Loose tea sold in a vacuum pack and packaged in a tin. Awesome quality tea for a great price $5+/100g on sale. Lightly fermented. Tastes faintly like a natural milky oolong. Been able to steep 6 times with a final cold steep (for several hours) and delicious every cup. Very creamy taste and aroma and mildly vegetal tasting.

bought it locally at a Chinese supermarket, of all places. I believe this brand is available at retailers in Australia but not sure about the US. Just Make is the brand.

China Pu-Erh Tuo Cha, Size 1.

I like the pressed shape and wrapping for the tactile sensation of preparing this tea. It is a very unique flavor, very earthy, almost some mushroom notes. I like it with a bit of honey in it.

I had read something by someone, not remembering where, that they enjoyed this tea. It was a strange enough name that I had to consider it. Nobody locally had it, so I had to order it online.

I am glad I did.

I'm not a huge tea or coffee guy, but I recently found Celestial Seasonings Lemon Zinger when I was pushing through a nagging sore throat. Tasty tasty!

Just recently got in to the tea thing started with Lapsang a very tasty tea strong and heavy in smoke almost camp fire! Yun WU green, also split a tea cake of 1962 Pu-Erh.
The same damned co-worker that started me smoking cigars got me into this Tea thing. Also got a plastic steeper for these loose leaf tea's. I enjoyed tea before but now it is a whole new world.
If anyone has a suggestions please let me know.
