The java has been a fabulous wealth of information, but I am wondering if there are any more tea drinkers out there? I enjoy both, but am beginning to drink more tea and less coffee. I have a number of personal favorites, depending upon the time of day and the mood I am in including Irish breakfast and Scottish Breakfast, and some Assams and Ceylons. I also like Earl Grey if it is made with real oil of bergamont.
As for purveyors of tea, I tend I enjoy the teas from Harney and Sons, Rishi, Numi and from the Republic of Tea. If nothing else, the whole story and concept around the Republic of Tea is awesome! I also enjoy Mighty Leaf teas and on some days a cup of Lipton hits the spot if for no other reason. I know there are a number of other teas that I have had in my travels, I just can't keep track of all of them.
I just enjoy the whole concept and culture around tea...slowing down to brew and enjoy a cup of hot tea in this fast paced world. I do tend to use bags for their convience, but I do have a number of loose teas, some tea spoons, some tea balls, and an infuser to make tea. I also have a couple of vintage Japanese cast iron tea pots that make a great cup of green tea.
Any others out there who enjoy this wonderful beverage?
