I love running into new teas. Teas from around the world inspire me to learn more about other cultures and peoples. This Kenyan Tinderet black tea from David's Tea does just that and makes me want to visit Kenya to find more.
Another member of the permanent collection over at 52teas is the Pomegranate Black Tea. Need I say more than I clearly see why it's worthy of being permanently added to the list of available teas from Franks continuing experiment?
Da Hong Pao has an interesting story behind it. It's one of the great five WuYi mountain oolong teas from China and it's one of the most praised as well. I picked up this tea directly from a grower-producer at the 2010 World Tea Expo.
I enjoy a Sri Lankan tea from time to time. From a Ceylon Silver Tips to a subtle orthodox black tea, some of the most interesting new teas today come from Sri Lankan farms. This FBOPF Extra Special from New Vithanakande which I picked up at the 2010 World Tea Expo is a stellar example.
One thing I have been able to count on in this wacky tea world is that the fine guys over at Andrews & Dunham Damn Fine Teas do indeed market some rather fine tea. In this case the Earl Grey, a member of the series 3 set is a nice infusion of a classic and continually popular tea.
