This will be an easy one today, but I think it will be fun. I just want to know, if you can taste any tea you want to, what would it be? Now, you have to help us out by not just listing the tea, but leaving us a link as to where we might be able to find it, in case we want to try it too. Give your reason why you've been "on your head" to try this tea. We want to know. To make it even better, leave us a tempting picture of it. Write about it in my comments if you don't have a blog, but if you do, please post about it today (or the next couple of days) on your blog, and link back here at Mr. Linky so we can all share, K. Thanks, and let's play!

Here's mine:

I so want to try "Tung Ting Premium. This young leaf tea from the highest plantations above Sungpoling (Pine Bluff) is regarded as one of Taiwan's best. Grown across a hilly plateau sheltered by groves of areca palm and giant bamboo, the tender leaves and buds brew a pale golden-green cup with a supurb flavor and a subtle natural floral aroma. It is one of the finest green oolongs. Use spring water at a temperature of 80° to 90° C. (180° to 195° F.) and multiple short steepings." I want to try this in a pale colored inside and medium blue outside, handle-less, Japanese cup. Something taller than it is short and wide. I want to try it virgin first and then try it with raw sugar. You can purchase this tea at http://www.holymtn.com/tea/oolongtea.htm and many other tea companies if you google the name of the tea. Be careful to choose reputable companies that don't warehouse teas long after purchase and shipment. Ask them by emailing or calling. Check for quality control, storage use, how they source their tea, etc. What am I saying? Get the best tea your money can afford from the best supplier. This doesn't mean expensive, it means quality.

What about you?

Have a wonderful tea day today. We certainly will. I'm going to brew a Japanese Sencha Fukamushi and my girls just finished a green ginger peach.

I wonder if you could get your tea day listed here.
