On the recommendation of a friend, I have invested in a shipment of Stash tea. Certain loved ones (the decaffeinated loved ones) are fond of decaf Early Grey. I am a caffeine lover myself, but in the cool winter evenings I dig a warm cuppa that is sans, so I opted for the Vielle de Noël, Christmas Eve tea, which is a minty thing. And, because it was on sale, I bought some (high-test) Christmas Morning tea which smells divine. It is a black tea, and as is completely appropriate, is just tea. Just the tea, ma'am, no mint, no fruit, no flowers.
Plus, it's economical. All in, the bags were about the same in price as the H-E-B brand (no-name, store brand floor sweepings) and the loose tea was even less expensive. Both are much better quality than the run-of-the-mill.
