Just had some nice English breakfast tea here in California. Tattle Tea has good English breakfast tea and it's reasonably priced per ounce especially when you buy the 2 pound bag.

Maybe I'll actually order some loose tea too.

this isn't even very good orange marmalade, but something about orange marmalade on toast just pairs perfectly with tea. I guess it's the bitter and slightly citrusy notes in each?

my fancy tea from upton came yesterday and so I am enjoying my second cup of the east frisian someone itt recommended and it is great! i brewed it a little stronger than the directions say because it was a little weaker than I wanted.

Also sometimes tea reviews get semi-pornographic:

quote:

This blend of leaves is a medium-bodied go-to tea. Like most teas that are new to me, I need 3 cups over a few days to make my decision. And Richmond Park won. It is not bitter at all, and strokes its way over your tongue and down your throat. It's buttery and chewy. It will delight your mouth and warm your belly. Buddha belly for me.

I did a vacation in Argentina last year, and I have to say, yerba mate is just not my thing. At least it has a cool emoji 🧉

The traditional way to drink yerb is by far just the worst ever. I've gotten Montezuma's revenge before and I'm just not cool with it happening again.

Toasted yerb is a great night time alternative to black tea though. Even though it has a caffeine analogue in it it's very calming and nice with some spring honey.

Having some pu erh rn with a half teaspoon of Splenda, v nice

I'm still working on that order of breakfast blends. East Frisian and Leadenhall were both good but not new favorites. I thought it was weird at first but what's really grown on me is the mincing lane blend (assam/yunnan).

I'm not a tea drinker, but I'd like to try some. I've heard/read Earl Grey is a great starter tea. It's also Picard's go-to, so that helps. As an aside, I think straight black & green tea tastes like lawn clippings much to the chagrin of my Japanese mom. Is my foray into the classy world of tea doomed to failure? Please advise.

I dunno. It depends. There are so many varieties, even among green and black teas.

I actually think earl grey turned me off to tea for a while. Too bitter with the bergamot or something. An english cousin making me a cup of PG Tips with milk on a cold afternoon was a revelation, and I discovered tea is good with milk in it. I used to do honey and/or lemon, and that was okay but really with milk is best for me. Twinnings irish breakfast is very available and plenty good, as is their 'darjeeling' (that isn't actually darjeeling). Set a timer for 4 minutes and leave room in the mug for some milk.

Yeah, I love tea, but I can't handle Earl Grey. The bergamot usually gives me a headache, which can range anywhere from mild to full on freight train migraine. There's so much other great tea I just drink that instead!

Some oolong varieties might be your style. There are a lot of different varieties under that style, some are roasty and less grassy. The stuff you get in Japan tends to be pretty bitter and harsh but there are several Chinese and Taiwanese varieties.

If you want more caffeine than tea or coffee but with a mild taste: guayusa.

Also, anyone else here use L-theanine? It's a supplement/extract made from gyokuro tea. It's a non-stimulant that relaxes you but improves your concentration.

I really love Stash double bergamot earl grey, it's the best earl grey I've had. I got a box of their organic English breakfast tea and it's also really good and doesn't need milk at all, it's all smooth and not bitter. Stash makes good tea.

Earl Grey wasn't as weird/bad as I was expecting, but I'm sticking to coffee.
