Here is a link to some Dragon Pearl Tea
This tea looks like tiny green pearls when the water is added they unfold during the steeping , and the flavor is very subtle.

Thank you Macerca, great lookin Site


I get alot of inspiration from Rosehips and Hibiscus

It has a very sour tart flavor and can at times make me want to hurl but it clears my head and lets me have my visions.

On a nicer note, one of my favorite Flavors is Chammomile Mango, settles the stomach and has just the right fruit flavor.

I have an entire Cupboard in the kitchen dedicated to TEA. We drink alot of it and we enjoy it emensly.

I guess my alltime fav is Earl Gray when I just want to sit and relax and collect my thoughts helps me gather my forces together.

I like Earl Grey or Lady Grey tea for everyday. My husband likes Assam tea for breakfast.

I also like Lapsang Souchong.

I only really like Twining's Teas... Can't stand teabags, have to make it from tea leaves! biggrin.gif

I'm not too keen on the teas flavoured with herbs, flowers etc...

I don't think it "tastes" like coffee, but Chai tea has the same effect -- high in caffeine. It's spicey and quite good when travelling (I hate airplanes).

I'm hooked on the Earl Grey as well. I love it with a bit of honey and milk (my grandmother hooked me on the milk part). I also like Earl Grey in the evening after a hot bath with a little brandy,lemon and honey in it biggrin.gif . My grandmother used to call that "Irish Tea". Don't know whether that's what it is or not, but it's nice.

Hey, I wonder why stuff with brandy/whiskey/bourbon in it turn Irish all of a sudden unsure.gif

My very favorite is a local (I think) California blend called "Good Earth' : lists ingredients as Black Tea, rose hips, chamomile, cinnamon, lemongrass, peppermint, papaya leaf, anise, orange peel, and ginger. Plenty of caffeine, and altho the list looks looks like what my Hubby calls "froufrou tea", the effect is actually mostly tea with cinnamon and some subtle herb overtones. Very nice hot with lemon.

Where now the horse and the rider? Where is the horn that was blowing?
Where is the helm and the hauberk, and the bright hair flowing?
Where is the hand on the harpstring, and the red fire glowing?
Where is the spring and the harvest and the tall corn growing?
They have passed like rain on the mountain, like a wind in the meadow
The days have gone down in the West behind the hills into shadow
Who shall gather the smoke of the dead wood burning
Or behold the flowing years from the Sea returning?

If you really want a "Taste " of Scotland order some tea from Kinnells Scottish Tea...they have all types of teas and most come from Edinburgh....you can reach them by the internet: www.silverplumetearoom.com or call 1-866-6hightea tell them you are new and ask for some samples and a catalog...that's where I get mine from..Good stuff...then go to Atlanta Bread co and get a Scone...and you'll think you died and went to heavy it will be so good together..

The Tea that inspires me the most is any Mint Tea made with the sap of a Maple Tree.

When we make our Maple Syrup in February, we get the sap boiling good for a couple hours and we dip a cup of the sap out and steep it with a Mint Tea bag. Nobody has ever added sugar to it yet and I have been doing this for 14 years.

It is sooooooo gooooood. thumbs_up.gif biggrin.gif
