    If you havent tried any, you should try the chinese monkey tea. Its a nice green tea, subtle flavour and light golden colour. Its picked by trained monkeys, and is usually quite expensive.

    Yep,

    Count me in.

    Do you have any other faves Clare that you think we should try? Your call on the last lot was spot on.... absolutely great tea.

    Re: how bout some more tea?

    I find chrysanthemum tea quite pleasant as well. Green/white teas I tend to prefer, since Oolong and other fermented teas are a bit overpowering. Teet goon yum (iron buddha tea) is a darker tea that is nice, especially after a lot of oily foods.

    In fact, theres probably not any Chinese tea that I wont drink. Helps when the other half is from that part of the world and can introduce me to the multitudes of styles of tea.

    Re: how bout some more tea?

    Id be keen for some more green tea within the next few polls. Almost out of the Gunpowder green tea (gave too much away at Xmas :( ). This was a very popular gift and it makes for a great cuppa at work. Im open to suggestions from tea experts as the Gunpowder green was an excellent choice.

    Re: how bout some more tea?

    Id be up for some black tea. Not such a fan of the green.
    I think it would be a good idea to alternate between a green and a black if possible.

    Weve tried the Assam Baghjan (GFBOP) recently and found it to be a very nice cup. Its a broken leaf tea (unlike the Darjeeling which was a whole leaf). Its like a very good quality English Breakfast tea.

    Id be happy with something like that (or Darjeeling again).

    Anyone else have a recommendation for a black tea?

    Brett.

    Re: how bout some more tea?

    I personally loved the Darjeeling. Not overly fond of the green. What about a good quality Sri Lankan tea. Dilmah have had some very fine quality high grown teas which dont seem to be on the shelves any more. Having said that a good Assam would also be nice.

    Re: how bout some more tea?

    Yep,

    Yall got my vote..... I prefer black tea also but dont know enough about the subject to identify one in preference to another :(.

    I dont know if Clarexican is about yet or not, but she knows a lot more about good teas than most people I know, so perhaps if shes lurking around she might be able to throw some options up for us :) to facilitate a bit of a short list.... maybe? Or perhaps if there is another tea connoisseur among us who knows his/her stuff, they could do likewise ;D... pretty please?

    Cheers,
    Mal.

    Very true 2muchcoffeeman.
    Shameless plug removed now. :)


    We nearly had a great black tea last poll but it got caught-up in customs. It may appear with this poll if we can.
