One of the questions I received on Houzz was asking for my favorite tea. I can say, without hesitation, it is Assam. I like it very strong... I let it steep for about three minutes, then add sugar and cream.
I mail order my tea, by the pound, from Simpson & Vail in Brookfield, Connecticut. Now in it's second generation of the Harron family, it's a small, well managed, very user friendly importer and retailer.
They were featured here in the December issue of Brookfield Magazine.
Are you a coffee or tea person? Or perhaps both? Where do you get bulk coffee and/or tea?
