Default Tea Base poll

I want to conduct a poll as to everyone's favorite base teas. I've been using a 50/50 green and black and feel its time to start experimenting with other combinations.

Pu-erh tea is my go to tea. I like the fact that there is a lot less tannin in the tea and you can get a really long steep without the tea becoming bitter with them.

Besides, I absolutely love the earthyness, especially with a bit of honey.

My top three favorite tea blends currently to brew with are Oolong, Rooibos, & guayusa.

Can't wait to try speciality oolong like iron god of mercy, & I plan a jasmine tea brew here in the future.

I like to add flavored green tea. Aci-berry green tea is awesome, as is the Blueberry green tea.

Ha-ha in oxidation level wise. Its not a blend of the two though.

Also pu-erh tea is delicious and very earthy and doesn't get bitter.
