I also love coffee. I used to live in Jamaica in my 20’s and the coffee there is fantastic. But this is a tea thread and I also love tea. I just love life stuff. I try and be a positive person.

When I was over in Asia, I learned that teas like Lipton are what they call "sweepings", what thery sweep up off the floor after they package up the better loose leaf teas. We went to some of the better tea houses where they had gently smoked whole leaf teas and some other fantastic ones, right off the plantations. Some were smoked / dried with ginger and/or jasmine...not like anything you can get anywhere else on earth!
So yes, I bought my sister all these exotic teas, and she really does love them. I'd probably like some of them too, but I never bought any ones like that for us. Although, I do have a number of nice loose leaf teas which are good.
Anyway...teas are fun.
