Tea Perfection

I love tea. It has so many qualities...refreshing, healing, cleansing, warming, cooling. I prefer loose leaf teas...but I have found several "full leaf" bagged teas that I enjoy. If you've never tried loose're missing out!

The teas that I drink the most are:

*Ancient Happiness from Gong Fu and Apricot Green from Adagio.
*Rooibos...Vanilla Rooibos is the best.
*Evening in Missoula
*Pacific Breeze from Gong Fu...or Citron Oolong by Rishi Tea.

One of my favorite summer teas is Passion Tea by Tazo. You can get it at Starbucks (they make it daily). If you want to get a little wild, try their Passion Tea Lemonade. Yum. Tea is where it's at.

I like tea as well, and loose leaf is always an adventure for me, Sara! Hope all is well with you...

This is embarassing to admit...but I have no idea how to go about drinking loose-leaf tea. I've always just purchased some box of tea bags at the market.

So....if I want to get into loose tea, what would I need to get started (ie equipment)?

Gavrieleh...there are several methods to brewing loose leaf tea. The best, I think, is the steep it in a basket type strainer. You can always use a tea ball, available almost anywhere, but they don't let the leaves move around, and the flavor is compromised. Check out for some good teapots. My favorite for beginners is their IngenuiTEA.
