Any tea drinkers?

    My favorite teas are earl grey and oolong. I was lookin to find some extra nice stuff for that rare occasion where the cheapo bags aren't going to cut it.

    So, any suggestion? Preferably an amazon source.

    I drink tea every morning. The best stuff that i have ever had is from Charleston Tea Plantation. I think it's the only commercial tea plantation in US.
    It's awesome stuff, but a little pricey.

    Bags are for chumps. I buy tea by the pound at a local coffee place. I use a tea ball. Thousand times better than stale tea in a bag.
    Never attribute to malice, that which can adequately be explained by stupidity.

    I use a tea press, but I used a ball for many years. Theoretically filter papers grab some of the essential oils, but I can't say they I'd be able to tell the difference. The fill your own bag deals are good.

    I did some looking on Amazon and it seems tea is one of those things on Amazon that is overpriced and lacking in selection.
