gb, teavana is a great place. i have a few loose leaf green teas from them.

my other favourite place for teas is Harney and Sons Fine Tea is Your Source for Green, Black, Oolong, White Teas, Herbals, and Tea Gifts

i love their earl grey with silver tips, called early grey supreme.

tatt, check out their "tropical green" tea. it's sencha with pineapple. delicioso.

I pretty much stick to rooibos and herbal teas. Some of my favorites are:
  • Celestial Seasonings - English Toffee
  • Lipton - Cinnamon Apple
  • Kalahari Red Tea - Highlands Honey
Unfortunately, my source for the Highlands Honey has dried up.

My favorite tea changes from time to time, right now it's ginger and honey tea, and my never changing one is oolong tea.Time to time I have Kenyan brewed tea. (it's tea leaves, half milk half water, sugar, all boiled together and served hot)

Bucky that early grey supreme is great. You turned me on to Harney and Sons a few years ago and I am very thankful you did!

I am so glad that tea has become popular here. There are more and more great tea places opening all the time. There is no longer a need to buy low quality tea bags now that loose leaf tea is so easy to get. Of course there is nothing wrong with tea bags if that is what you like.

Jikoni, Alix introduced me to an amazing ginger tea last year. it is from Stash Tea (another great place) and it is called White Christmas. It is a white tea with ginger and mint. Man is that stuff good.

pai mu tan (white tea)

gunpowder green

various black teas: Russian Caravan, Prince of Wales, Baltimore Clipper, Irish Blend, Darjeeling

the only tea bag I bother with is an import called "London Cuppa"

I prefer not to have tea out at a restaurant or shop in the US because they have no idea how to make tea in this country. (a cup of once hot water and a tea bag on the side is not tea), but any rail station kiosk in the UK can make you a fine cuppa worth your time to enjoy it.

"Gee, Darling, is that Darjeeling?" infused Earl Grey, teasingly.
