I finally get black tea.
I never really understood the appeal. I've had tea plenty of times; growing up, nobody in our household drank coffee, and tea was the hot beverage my mom always made for herself. Eventually I drank a bunch, too: Constant Comment, an orange-and-spice flavored black tea in bags. It was good, especially with some sugar, but then, I like cinnamon and oranges and that's what it mostly tasted like.
Later on I started drinking herbal teas, and there are quite a few that I enjoy, but black tea has mostly left me cold.
And now I know why. It's because I was drinking crappy tea in bags. Earlier this week I received a tea infuser and 2 ounces of black tea from Stash. It's rose-flavored, but it's actual loose tea leaves with rose petals. And the tea is intoxicatingly marvelous! The depth of flavor is surprising. I even like it without sweetener. Next order is going to be an assortment of plain black teas. Any suggestions?
