As part of a writing project, I’d like people to nominate their seven most interesting teas. If you had to pout together a tea sampler to offer variety, interest and experience, what would be in it? They must be at least 50% Camellia Sinesis!

Robert, this is a big ask. A mystical seven. I’ll have a think to determine if I’m up to the challenge.

I will think about it too.

Just a question: “pure” one place teas, blends, flavoured teas?

Darjeeling, Assam, Ceylon, Keemun, Yunnan, Puerh, Oolong, Sencha.
I know; that’s 8. Sorry, can’t decide which one to cut.
My personal list would be: Darjeeling, Keemun, Yunnan, Golden Monkey, Oolong, Ceylon, , and…uhm…Vanilla tea.
Of course there are so many variations within each tea I listed.
I’m biased I don’t like Rooibos, any herbals, or white tea much.
I realize that flavored teas are hugely popular but I’m starting to think that one reason flavors are so popular is that most people are exposed to such poor black, or green teas that they only really like them when the taste of the base tea is masked.

Suggested favorite/interesting teas:
Morocan Mint Green Tea from Tao of Tea
Japanese Matcha Powdered Green Tea from Stash
Morocan Pu-erh Green Mint tea from Numi
Tea Sampler: Ceylon, Green Sencha, and Red Rooibos from Mountain Rose Herbs
Lapsang Souchong from Harneys and Son
I have tried only a few of these teas and I enjoyed them.
