Newbie Needs Serious Help!

by kmarker » Dec 11th, '06, 08:34

I'm trying to surprise my wife for Christmas with some loose tea in her stocking. However, I'm clueless on teas! What are people's opinion on who has good English Breakfast, Irish Breakfast and Darjeeling tea? Thanks!

The two best English Breakfast teas that I favor are by Ahmad and Tazo.

Their aroma is wonderful as well as the taste.

It is nice that you are giving the gift of tea.

Adagio's Spring Darjeeling is very good. So is their Irish Breakfast. I don't like the English breakfast, but then again, I don't like English breakfast generally anyway.

I know she likes the three I mentioned in my first post, however, I don't know whether to get them from Twinnings, Adagio, Ahmad, or others.
