Luzianne is absolutely the best! Whenever I go back to California I bring my daughter several boxes! It is available online, but you might be able to do a search for a store nearby, which would be cheaper.

I love Canadian Red Rose, it is much stronger tea than the Red Rose you get here. Love it.

Oh, I love that tea (Constant Comment)! I can't have any caffeinated or decaffeinated teas anymore, but that was always my favourite - the one positive thing about my ex-brother-in-law (from near Liverpool) was introducing me to it.

I drink tea at home and in the office (usually green, but sometimes oolong), but rarely have it when dining out. My wife will order it sometimes. She usually just asks what kind of tea they have, and the waiter will go find out. Every once in a while we run into a place where they bring a box to the table with several different types of tea, which is nice, because then she can select whatever she likes.

i once read about - then mentioned to a smart guy coworker that almost all teas came from the same tea plant.

he responded that it must be one really big plant!!!

lol, i meant the same kind of plant. white, green, black, oolong, breakfast, matcha, genmaicha, keemun, etc., all are teas from the same kind of plant, but the differences are where they're grown, when they're picked, and how they're treated after picking.

so charlie, you were quite correct to specifically order black tea. just asking for tea could get you one of hundreds of different things, really.

btw, earl grey is a black tea that's flavoured with bergamot, a mediterranean citrus fruit.

I didn't notice this part the first time I read this post. Constant Comment is one of my favorites as well. So good on a chilly winter night!

I love tea! When you ask for black tea in SA, they bring you a cup of regular tea without milk. We just ask for tea and if you want rooibos or herbal tea you must specify. I love all teas. Loose tea has a better flavour though, I don't like buying bags.

These are my favourites:

I don't like it either! The bergamot taste is too strong!
