Which black teas are your favorites?

Postby ClarG » Feb 5th, '14, 01:58

I enjoy all types/flushes of Darjeeling, Keemun, pu-erh, Assam, Nilgiri, sometimes Lapsang souchong if it's not way too smokey, Earl Grey, Yunnan gold rush, Ceylon/Sir Lankan, Masala chai, and that's about it.

I forgot about Nepalese black tea I really enjoy that as well.

I've had Russian Caravan and I thought it was OK but I prefer Lapsang souchong to it.

Minhongs. Followed by good Yunnanese blacks.

Now that I've found a good smoked lapsang, certainly enjoying that.

It depends on my mood, and what I am craving at any particular time. But I will always enjoy a top-tier Nepalese FF / SF.

Best wishes,

I may have to revise the opinion I expressed above, as I am drinking a FF Jungpana that is fantastic!

Best wishes,

Keyhung, Hunwal, Tinderet and a good Kambaa sometime Gunung Dempo if it's to be had-not the easiest brew to source.

Sabah Tea (black tea from Borneo). Significantly different from the English Breakfast/Assam/Indian CTC/Earl Grey the rest of my family drinks. I always pick up a half kilo or so when I'm out in Kota Kinabalu.
