Oh dear, just one? It's *so
* difficult to choose a favorite! Of my gajillion blends, I'd say I have a top ten list that includes:Southworth http://tinyurl.com/2cfgyyr
It's a strong, powerful flavor but at the same time, refined and comfortable. It really does replace coffee well as a morning beverage, and I like that it's distinctive, but not a "weird" flavor so I can serve it in mixed company. (Gourmands and flavorphobics agree: nomnom!)Neipalm
When I was blending this one, I chose the flavors based on the people the tea is a tribute to -- and was pleasantly surprised at how beautifully the flavors worked together. It's mainly Earl Grey and Oriental Spice, representing Neil Gaiman (and english writer) and Amanda Palmer (an unconventional musician/performance artist) with Guanabana thrown in the mix to represent the exotic nature of their pairing. It's a flavor that almost defies description, but is the kind of thing you can easily drink several cups of in a row.Moonwaffle http://tinyurl.com/232bpwv
I love this one because it's like dessert in a cup. The same reason I like so many of my blends, which tend to lean towards the desserty side.
(Moonwaffle seems to be everybody else's favorite of mine as well, selling over twice
as many as my next-highest seller.)Double Rainbow ATW http://tinyurl.com/27j9gyk
I love this one because it's sweet, light and friendly. I made a huge pitcher of it iced for friends recently, and it practically vanished! A Walk In The Park (Floral) http://tinyurl.com/23lot5m
I love how this one tastes like you've put a bouquet in your mouth. I also love that it's three different kinds of tea (ceylon, rooibos and green) and it works! (I spent a bit of time playing with 3-note blends that weren't "supposed" to go together, and came up with a few that do indeed.)Mojo http://tinyurl.com/29dohva
I love how exotic this one tastes. It reminds me of when you try a new kind of food you don't expect to like, but end up adoring. Like the lime coconut shrimp a friend made me years ago, that I had to work up the nerve to put in my mouth, and then promptly made a total pig out of myself eating several servings. This tea's like that, only not fishy. :>My Nutty Valentine http://tinyurl.com/2dx98xa
This is another one I love because it's so desserty, but it's especially tasty. I've never had candy with all three flavors in it (strawberry, chocolate, and hazelnut), but I hope they exist somewhere 'cause it's divine. Psychic Octopus http://tinyurl.com/2596b72
This one I love probably in equal parts because of the flavor and the name, both of which make me grin. The peach takes the orange/spice flavors in an interesting direction that's still spicy/sultry, but with an almost wispy note. Glimmer http://tinyurl.com/2a9abww
This one was one of the first blends I ever made, and with 90-plus blends under my belt, it's still one of my very favorites. It's sweet, and fruity/floral, and has that kind of immersive quality that intensely perfumed blends have -- it's more than just a flavor experience.
I love how opulent a flavor this one is, and how nicely it replaces uber-expensive coffeehouse drinks. It's just two notes, but they're two of my very favorite flavors and they dovetail *perfectly* It's one I can drink an entire pitcher of on my own.
