    Funny, that.

    Agree, but also not rapidly boiling water, or even water that has come to a rolling boil. Just after a simmer and before the big bubbles start erupting.

    Actually, Hibiscus is used as an abortion drug. You missed his attempt at humour after he was caught out with a Nigerian hooker.

    Haha, no, the tea is still known as Ceylon. You can actually see the tea plantations close to Kandy which are freaking amazing!

    Um..

    You can reuse your loose leaf tea a few times before you have to throw them away..just as an aside for any of you Brits that are still using tea bags.

    ^^ Irish breakfast tea is like the tea they served in government departments years ago. It tastes stewed no matter how careful you are and also tastes like the tea leaves the more discerning vendors discarded.

    ^Crikey...officianados of tea will be cringing.

    Earl grey for me, although the misses currently has a box of raspberry and pomegranate tea which I tried the other day and much to my surprise it was actually quite nice, I might be converted.

    Hi Reinvented..
    Oolong is such a great tea.. I found some loose leaf Ginger Oolong which is fantastic.

    Turkish tea is great, especially while in Turkey. They tend to put a lot of sugar in their tea... it does taste good though.

    Holy shit. I thought you were on a decent salary...and you're re-using tea leaves?

    Orange pekoe isn't a type of tea but a grade of tea. So a tea either is orange pekoe or not. Can not be, by definition, like orange pekoe

    Right, but I was asking if it tasted like orange pekoe as it is hard to tell by the box.
    I've kind of stayed more away from black teas these days. I find that there is too much caffeine. I prefer herbal teas or green tea.

    Nice one.. you can keep the herbal tea for in the evening to relax before bed.

    This is this month's selection for me, apologies for picture quality - just a quick snap from the mobile;


    Phoenix Jasmine Pearls - From Tai Lao Mountain in Fujian, white tea mixed with jasmine blossoms and rolled into little spheres - light jasminey flavour and a lovely straw-coloured brew




    Jing Shuan Oolong - this comes from the Doi Mae Salong area in Chiang Rai - mild and smooth with a sweet taste



    Yunnan Dragon - This is a white tea from, er, Yunnan. Leaves are picked young and not rolled. Again, a mild sweetish taste.

    ^Nice mix of tea there..
    Jasmine pearls are green tea with jasmine...yum.. one of my faves.
    The rest look delicious. if you get a chance try White peony tea from Fujian.. best tea I've ever had.

    They're readily available. We have a very good teashop close by, some I get from a wholefoods stall at the local market (a surprisingly good selection of teas there, that's where I got the Chiang Rai oolong), and I'm often in London so can pick some interesting varieties up there.

    Doubt it - it's a strong black tea you can stand your spoon in.

    Do you go through the full tea making ceremony? Little cups and everything?
