my favorite tea

while picking out a tea this morning we realized that our choices are often random. the only thing i know about my black tea preference is that i don't like earl grey -- to citrusy, too clovey -- but everything else -- what was the difference between irish breakfast and english breakfast? and this ceylon i'd been getting at the middle east market -- did i really like it as much as i'd thought?

so this morning we loaded up four cups with different teas and tried them all, both with (soy) milk and without.

the result? very similar for both of us. twinings irish breakfast #1, pg tips, with its distinctly soapy aftertaste last. they have cute commercials, but i'm glad to discover the queen doesn't really drink it. the celyon was utterly unremarkable, a caffeine delivery vehicle and nothing more. english breakfast, more complex, but slight tannic flavors.



what's your favorite black tea?
