you know black tea (e.g. english breakfast) made just right - warm the teapot up before pouring hot water in; let it steep for about 5 minutes or so - pour it into a nice bone china cup (if u have 1) and add some milk. put a tea cozy over the teapot to keep it nice and hot for the next cup. And, if you have one use a bone china tea pot.
Sometimes, I used loose tea leaves too. Loose tea leaves I think, are the nicest tasting teas whatever the type you are having. Like green tea - I like it best when I use loose tea leaves.
yea try it and if you like it - nice teapots and cups are easy to come by at second hand shops and garage sales sometimes - don't have to buy new. My favorite teapot cost me $1.00. I have my special tea pot and cups just for green tea too. something about having the right teapot and cup to drink it in makes it even that much more special for me for some reason.
I like Earl Grey tea with bergamot. Tea is a very interesting thing. it depends so much on the way you make it. On the pot and cup you use, whether you add milk or sugar or not. Wether you use bagged or loose tea. What company produced it from what region, etc. If you want to get its most exquisite aroma and flavour out, you need fine china, loose leaf tea and some research how to make it.
I wish I could say that picture of tea looks good, but it looks like "pea and spinach tea".
For some reason, green tea makes me a little nauseous. I don't know - it's like I can't get it strong enough, so it's like hot water. I like the plain, old, Chinese tea, English Breakfast, or just Lipton, Tetley, or Twinings. Unless it's Twinings, a little sugar.
I like chamomile tea for it's calming effect. I also drink other herbal teas like Pau D'Arco, Green Tea, and mint (mint with more spearmint than peppermint in it because I've read that too much peppermint on a regular basis can affect your heart). I like the berry flavored herbal teas as well.
I dont really have a favorite as long as its cold without ice and tons of sugar...good ole sweet tea...but I do have two favorite teapots that I use both bone chine and one of them has an isert for the loose tea in case I want to play act reading tea leaves
I, personally, have two breeds that tie in my heart- the American Pit Bull Terrier and the Yorkshire Terrier. Odd picks, I know, but eh I love em... Can't wait for another. I currently have 1 of each. When my APBT pup...
