I've never liked black tea. It's bitter and the taste sits on the back of my tongue. Earl Grey and English Breakfast particularly. The issue is, the blends that I would like to get often have black tea. Is there something that I'm doing wrong, or is there a specific type that I should try?
Also any recommendations for jasmine and chai (I actually dislike sweet teas, is there a way for it to not be so sweet)?
Fully oxidized tea leaves for a robust cup.
