Favourite Tea

So what's your favourite tea (including brand name)?

Right now I'm enjoying a cup of Stash's Double Bergamot Earl Grey. I doubt that anyone's other suggestions will be as tasty, but go ahead and try

Did you put a pinch of baking soda in the pitcher?

I don't drink much tea, preferring coffee. But I do like PG Tips.

I like a lot of teas. I've recently become quite taken by Numi Emperor's Puerh.


It's nothing like Earl Grey, which I also like a lot. It's almost coffee-like.

I make my own tea. some I grow myself others I buy from local shops.
my favorite right now is the House Chai mixture-I picked this up in a herb room on my last tour;
-chai tea
-Dried ginger root
-cinnamon
-cardamon
-turmeric root
-cloves
-nutmeg
and a hint of honey
a great spicy blend for cold winter days

Depends on the mood I'm in.

I'm on a bit of a Tazo Awake kick of late. Probably pretty pedestrian in the tea world, but readily available here.

I don't have a favorite variety of tea, but I drink Twinings brand more often than not. Loose leaf, and no milk or sugar.

I really like tea from the Granville Island Tea Company in Vancouver (Margaret's Hope and Second Flush Mim are lovely Darjeelings), and love a good matcha, oolong, pu'er... well, pretty much anything.

But in the end I always end up coming back to Twinings Earl Grey. I grew up on the stuff, and it's still my favourite. Milk, no sugar.

I've tried Chai Tea, including home made stuff, but I can't get past the overwhelming amount of spice used. My wife loves Chai and makes it at least every other day.
