Lately, when I go someplace, I buy their tea. In Paris it was Mariage Frere's Earl Grey French Blue, in Japan it was the above black sakura tea from Mikuniya Zengoro and super green sencha from the grocery store, in Seattle, it was Remedy Tea's Pine Smoked Lapsang Souchong.
And of course, I always accept donations of apple tea (elma çay) from Turkey.
Side note: pretty much any early grey tea is delightful, whether it comes from France or not. Dorian grey? Oh man. Just, lovely and sweet. A dessert tea.
Second side note: Lapsang souchoung is smoky. I mean. I enjoy Rauchbier and smoky whisky from Islay, but this tea is just too smoky. Way too smoky. WHY DID I BUY SEVEN OUNCES?! Maybe I'll cut it with something not so overpowering.
Sweet photo from my office.
