I like a tea called "fruit & almond". It's difficult to find around here.

I wouldnt. I always just put a splash of milk in my black tea. I would never drink black tea with a fruit flavour.

Has anyone tried Lapsang Souchong tea? It is apparently the black tea that is considered by many to be one of the best these days. I dont know how much it costs or how easily available it is. I will watch out for it when I am shopping.

Is Lapsang expensive? Can I buy it in the supermarket or does it have to be got in a special place?

Buy "Constant Comment" Gluten Free Tea from Bigelow.

This is my favorite for hot tea and I use Luzianne for iced tea.

Bigelow teabags of lapsang are about $7/16 bags. In bulk it is $16/pound, and there is never any there when I remember to look.

I also love lapsang souchong (chinese black tea that is smoked) and while twinnings and other companies have bagged available, I've found that one of the best comes from the republic of tea company. They sell it at my local indie coffee place by the can.

I only got as far as Earl Grey with my black tea adventures. What am I missing out on? If you are a fan of black tea, would you post here which ones you like, where you buy them, and what they cost.
I love black tea. This year I tried black tea with tropical fruit flavor. It was amazing. I also tried English Breakfast but I feel there is no difference than the normal black tea. But from where I come from, black tea is usually flavored with mint which has also a great taste. You can use fresh leaves of mint or the ready made tea bags flavored with mint (LIPTON).
