The cozy able2know tea salon....

What is your favorite tea to imbibe?

Is it iced or hot?


My personal favorites (listed alphabetically):
Darjeeling;
English Breakfast;
Harney and Sons' Canton Green Tea;
Moroccan Mint: This is M. Rohr's own unique blend of pure mint leaves and smoky Chinese green tea. Sweetened with only pure orange blossom honey with create a cool crisp refreshing taste.;
Russian Georgian.

If you need a reminder of the types of tea...

If you desire, you can take your tea in the library where discussions on literature and other civilized topics of chitter chatter is known to take place.

I was just going to use the honey to sweeten the tea...but since you insist! Mmm...fresh, homemade biscuits! There is nothing better.

This is a very nice place you have here. Have you hired any staff yet, or are you still doing everything yourself?

Lapsang Souchong, if I'm going to be around long enough for full benefit of the aroma. In more plebian moments, most store brands are fine with me.

Speaking of aroma, China Black doesn't do a thing for me. Way too fruity.

some of my faves

GENMAICHA
http://www.teaopia.ca/prodimages/34-DEFAULT-L.jpg

Genmaicha is the Japanese name for Green Tea and is also commonly referred to as the popcorn tea. Sencha is mixed with wholemeal rice, which has been fire roasted where it often ‘pops’ not unlike popcorn which is how it received its alternate name. Genmaicha has a sweet, nutty and a slight popcorn flavour which is known to aid in digestion. Due to the fact that it is naturally low in caffeine, this light Green Tea can be consumed at night without the risk of disturbing sleep.

SUMATRA HIGHLAND CHIN CHIN
http://www.teaopia.ca/prodimages/123-DEFAULT-L.jpg

This Indonesian Oolong is oxidized very tenderly providing the tea with a very fruity flavour. If you are new to Oolong tea the Sumatra Highland Chin Chin is great for beginners and is perfect any time of day.

TARRY LAPSANG SOUCHONG
http://www.teaopia.ca/prodimages/126-DEFAULT-L.jpg

This distinctive Black Tea is known for its naturally created deep, pungent, smoky aroma. Black Tea leaves are fired over smoking pine needles, which produce its overwhelming scent and flavour. This unique tea experience is a must try for Black Tea lovers.

KALAHARI
http://www.teaopia.ca/prodimages/295-DEFAULT-L.jpg

Kalahari is an exciting blend of Rooibos, lemongrass, orange peel and mallow blossoms. These natural ingredients combine to create a tea with a refreshing orange flavour. Kalahari is both appealing to the eye and the pallet and is perfect either hot or iced for tea and fruit lovers.

LADY EARL GREY
http://www.teaopia.ca/prodimages/460-DEFAULT-L.jpg

Black Tea lovers have been putting Earl Grey on the top of their list for years. And as the old saying goes, `behind every great man there is a great woman` and we are sure that our Lady Earl Grey will become an instant favourite with all tea drinkers. The subtle taste of bergamot with a hint of lemon is the perfect way to start or end any day.

TEMPLE OF HEAVEN GUNPOWDER
http://www.teaopia.ca/prodimages/103-DEFAULT-L.jpg

The name Gunpowder was given to this tea because its appearance resembles gunpowder pellets. This slightly open twisted leaf is hand shaped and has a very aromatic balanced flavour.

If that is the legendary Koala Tea, I believe I would strain it, after all.

I'll have the "tea of the day", thanks! (Rather broke at the moment.) Some of these look a wee bit expensive, though very tempting, for my budget. So what would today's tea of the day be, please? Smile

@Rockhead,
both Lady Diane and my brother add cream to their tea. It's an abomination, I have my Assam tea with lemon and one lump. When slumming I will drink Twinings english breakfast or, heaven forbid, Typhoo tea when really desperate.
