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 of the neatest things about Andrews & Dunham is that they seem completely content on producing small series collections with unique packaging and stories. This Jackee Muntz China Black Tea is a highlight from their Series 2 Collection.
There have been some really exciting developments in tea over the past couple decades. However, they’ve mostly been with technology or flavors. Adagio’s new “Roots Campaign” plays closer to my heart. This third installment is wonderful!
Lots of companies offer black teas. They’re the most traditional and recognized kind of tea. More recently companies have been offering black teas from different countries. This Sri Lankan blend from Adagio is a nice relaxing brew.
Last week, I covered my first day at the 2009 World Tea Expo held in Las Vegas. This week you get to hear about the rest of my trip. I won’t name names… but I met some really fantastic people at this year’s expo…
It’s been a week since the end of the World Tea Expo in Las Vegas and I’m still a little heady from the experience. Here’s a recap of my time at the Expo and my takeaway from the event.
It’s Friday… and that means a tea review is due. Well, this traditional black tea from the Lover’s Leap estate in Sri Lanka is at once relaxing and invigorating. Travel with me on a journey with this brew.
I’ve been looking for a new morning “Pick me up,” and I believe I’ve found just the thing! This American take on a traditional breakfast tea is nothing if not brisk.
By now you might realize that Harney & Sons is one of my favorite tea brands. I’ve covered quite a few of their teas here already and you’re assuredly going to see more. That being said, I approached this book with a clear mind and very little “fan boy” mentality, and believe I’ve come up with a review from a book I was ecstatic to pick up.
