    Time to pull out those brews and show what you're steepin'!

    Currently, I'm drinking Pakistani Lipton Yellow Label. Holy hogwash it's good, and I hate Lipton!

    Be sure to post pictures!

    Russian Caravan and a lot of other loose tea; I gave up on bags, seems like I can taste the paper.

    That's the one with lapsang in it!
    You should consider Tapal Family mixture if you're looking for something you can flash brew with strength and smoothness.

    In terms of smokiness, how is your blend?

    Aroma is great; smokiness is about medium brewed@4 minutes.

    I will try the Tapal.

    Kensington Earl Grey from MArshalls, probably cheap stuff in a tin.
    And English Breakfast from a tin made to look like a double decker filled with stereotypical british archtypes, again from Marshalls, and again probably cheap tea. But they were gifts, and they're getting me by. On special occasions (Sunday, my only day off) I'll have Twinnings loose black Earl Grey.

    Great thread! Tea is a hobby of mine, like wine is to others. Luckily for me my wife is Chinese and as such I am blessed by a great deal of high quality teas that I can locally source. I travel to China roughly once a year; had the good fortune of befriending a "blender" helping his children with conversational English....he pays me in Tea...a custom blend of Wulong (Oolong); friendly entitled 爱尔兰人傻茶蛋 - silly Irishman egg tea. Hahaha
