I’m born in Poland during the communist regimes reign. Back then there was only one tea available: Black Tea.

We mostly drank it with a slice of lemon and some sugar. To this day this is my favourite way of drinking tea.

But I also enjoy what I started calling “Queen Elisabeth Tea” when my daughter asked what it is, same black tea but with milk and sugar. She likes it a lot too.

Last but not least, I really enjoyed Japanese tea, we went to a special tea house and they showed us how to brew it and drink it. It was some special green tea, very delicious!

  • I love Japanese green tea and I’ve had some luck with Korean green tea as well. But my first true tea love came from roasted oolongs. That is what made me want to explore more and where I learned the value of re-steeping tea. Back in 2020, one my isolation hobbies was trying different teas and learning how to use a gaiwan.
