You can still buy these on Amazon. They are compressed, so you have to shave off the tea with a knife.

The one in the picture is a "Half Brick". There also come in "Full Brick", "Hockey Puck", "Ecstacy Tablets", and "Chocolate Bar". The last two being easier to prepare.

Here's a youtube video of it being prepared just to give you an idea.

Two Thai tea bags (this is my favorite)

2-3 tbls Sugar free vanilla syrup (I use Torani)

2 tbls Heavy whipping cream


  1. Steep the tea bags in 1 1/4 cup (10 oz) boiling water for 10 minutes

  2. Remove tea bags and let cool

  3. Add syrup and heavy whipping cream to desired sweetness and stir

  4. Pour over ice

  5. Enjoy!

    I found with those measurements above, it tastes just like what you get in restaurants.

Yes. Turkish here. This is the brand most popularly consumed. I like to use about five tablespoons per batch. You start off by washing the leaves a few times with hot, not boiling water. This eliminates any small particles, and will produce a clear brew. After boiling water in the large kettle, you pour it over into the smaller top kettle with your washed tea leaves. I like to place the small kettle directly on the stove to bring it to a quick boil, just until the leaves rise to the surface. This gives it a richer flavor in my experience. You then place the small kettle back over the large one, and let it steep for about ten minutes over a very low flame. Et voilà, Turkish tea. It's recommended to consume within half an hour/maaaybe an hour, or it'll go bitter and kinda rancid.

edit: they're not speaking Turkish though. Just the method of brewing is the same.

u/WhereintheOK · 9 pointsr/tea

Watch out because Some places add sugar to loose leaf teas (especially Teavanna).

This cinnamon tea by Harney & Sons tastes sweet, but has no sugar or sweeteners. They even tested it to verify it is sugar free. It is just the cloves & cinnamon.

I believe block tea would taste similar to American style tea dust tea bags. I could be wrong. A strong tea brick such as this one might compensate for the usual weakness associated with tea dust.

Hmm, good question. I don't really know how to describe it to you. It has a good aroma, it isn't flowery (I strongly dislike flowery tasting tea), it's strong but not so much so (obviously this can be made stronger or lighter depending on how much tea you put in the pot). It's just a really good tasting tea blend. It always gives me that relaxed and warm feeling with just the right amount of caffeine to hit that craving. It goes really well with pita and feta cheese, too, but I'm probably safe in assuming you don't have your tea in this way. It should taste good with other food, as well.

Plus, it's relatively cheap considering the quality.

u/Pinkie_Pylon · 6 pointsr/mildlyinteresting

Yeah I'd say it's fairly standard.

The best household tea is Yorkshire Gold though.

u/JeremyR22 · 5 pointsr/britishproblems

Expat pro tip: Yorkshire Gold is available on Amazon. It's even on Prime and as a subscription/regular delivery in the US.

Bigelow has Girl Scout cookie-inspired flavors! They were seasonal, but you can still find them through Amazon. (Thin Mint and Samoa)

u/itprobablysucks · 5 pointsr/Nootropics

This one is for $4, but it's an add-on. This is a pretty good deal too.

u/Twilight_Flopple · 5 pointsr/tea

Don't fall into the craze of getting tea with fruit and whatnot added to it, like every damn tea that Teavana sells. Good quality tea has a complex flavor and, depending on your preference, tastes very good on it's own.

A good loose-leaf black tea, like Twinnings Earl Grey or English Breakfast, is a good place to start, it's hard to mess up. Just measure a teaspoon of leaf per cup (I like to give one full teaspoon, then a half for each cup over one.) boil some water, pour it on, and steep for just under 4 minutes. Add sugar or milk if you like, but try it plain first, I promise it won't be bitter if you practice a few times and don't steep too long.

If you want something without caffeine for evenings, a tablespoon of chamomile flowers steeped for 5 minutes is slightly sweet, has no caffeine, and will help you sleep as well. Just be sure to strain it, lots of little flower bits floating on top of your tea are no fun to drink

u/Himekat · 4 pointsr/tea

Most Chinese restaurants' basic tea (unless you ask for something different) is a jasmine-scented oolong, or a plain oolong or young green tea, or some mix of those. It's impossible to know the brand they use without asking -- it might be a fully-Chinese brand they get from some wholesaler, something they mix themselves, etc.

If you only go to Teavana, perhaps try their Jasmine Dragon Pearls, but it would probably be best to pick an online seller and get some samples of jasmine teas to try. Heck, you could even try Dynasty's "Chinese Restaurant Tea", which is supposed to approximate the flavor of the teas most places use.

Do you need it right now or do you have a few days.

There is a great one off Amazon: . Made a really nice Earl Grey infused gin with it.

u/oldhippy1947 · 3 pointsr/tea

It's almost certainly cheaper teabag teas. Restaurant I used to go to usually had boxes of it for sale at hostess stand. Probably something like this
Though I see someone at Adagio has made a custom Chinese Restaurant Tea as well.

Here ya go, yet another Texan here, it pains me that someone has never tried the magnificence of Sweet Tea

Directions: (Texas iced sweet tea)


  • A Gallon pitcher (3.78541 litre)- typical, can use smaller but usually made in bulk and kept in fridge

  • Tea bags

  • Water

  • Sugar

  1. Get a pot/saucepan - Aprox. 2 litre

  2. Add water (about 3/4's of pan)

  3. Put 2 Tea bags in pot

  4. Heat on stove "hob?" until boiling - medium heat bring it to a slow boil and let boil for about 5 minutes, not too long or the bags will burst.

  5. Turn off heat, and let it sit for a few minutes, 5 to 10 should do (failure to do this will result in bitter tea)

  6. Pour the 2 litre sauce pan of Tea into big pitcher

  7. Fill the rest of the pitcher with water

  8. Add 1-2 cups (136 g - 272g) of sugar - stir

  9. Served in a tea glass, Not sure if you guys have these, but a pint glass will suffice, most drink with ice but I actually prefer mine at room temp (I'm strange by Texan standards)

Turkish Black Tea this week! Deep and dark in a strong and slightly bitter way. Too strong for the better half though who promptly added some dried apples to her first cup in a vain attempt to recall her hippy days in Istanbul. For the curious.

u/NE556 · 3 pointsr/tea

Started this morning off with some Caykur Black Tea, Altinbas, Turkish black tea. Needed a bit of a major wake-up. Been drinking a lot of Supreme Golden Needle Black Tea or Wu Yi Shui Xian Oolong in the afternoon depending on what I'm feeling. Love the strong bold flavors in the Wu Yi Shui Xian, and the strangely more delicate/light of the Supreme Golden Needle. Although it's not delicate/light overall, but in comparison.


Considering of doing a bit more green tea, although I do find I need to drink green when it's hot rather than it being OK to cool somewhat with lots of my black or the Wu Yi Sui Xian oolong above.

u/kisuka · 3 pointsr/webdev
u/brrrrip · 3 pointsr/AdviceAnimals

Order some tea, and make it yourself.

Six of those small bags in ~2cups of almost boiling water until It's real dark. Put a little warm water in a gallon container and fully dissolve about 2 cups of sugar in it. Fill the container about halfway or more with ice and cold water. Stir your tea in. Fill the rest of the container with ice.

It's best over crushed ice so you can easily eat it as you go along.

That's the brand we use, and the recipe/method I use.
Pure cane sugar you won't need as much of. (1 1/2 cups).
Regular general use sugar isn't as sweet.

It is sweet, I warn you. You can always steep more tea, and add more water if it's too much.

That is a very reliable way to produce a healthy SCOBY. If you're seeing some good activity, it may be unnecessary but a fresh batch of tea with sugar and a bottle of plain store bought kombucha will be perfect for sure. In case you're reading something different, here is my recipe for my base batch of sweetened tea (using black tea):

  1. Bring 6 cups of water to a boil
  2. Remove from heat and stir in 35 grams of loose leaf black tea (cover with lid)
  3. Steep for 4 minutes, stirring once at 2 minutes
  4. Strain into clean fermenting vessel
  5. Add 1 cup of sugar and mix until dissolved
  6. Add another 8 cups of cold water
  7. Leave in ice bath or on counter until temp drops to 72-75
  8. Add two cups of starter tea (now you're at a full gallon)
  9. Wash hands and rinse SCOBY under cool tap water to remove excess yeast/bacteria
  10. Add SCOBY to tea and cover with appropriate cloth cover
  11. Ferment at 72-75.
  12. Taste a spoon/straw full each day beginning at about 5 days. If it's not tart enough, let it go another day and taste again. For me, a week is perfect. Just like with beer, an ambient temp that's higher will ferment faster and the reverse is true also.
  13. Once you have it to your tartness preference, pour off two cups for your next batch.
  14. Mix any juice flavorings into the remaining tea.
  15. Bottle and let it sit for another 3 days to carbonate.

    A few additional tips while I'm at it:

  • Take a clean plastic jug (mine was a leftover apple juice jug from making cider) and pour in 8 cups of water. Using a Sharpie, mark the water line. Going forward, after each batch, fill the jug to the water line and throw it in the fridge. When you get to your next batch, use that water in the steps above. The colder water will drop your temp faster.

  • I sanitized everything the first time I made kombucha. I never did it again after that and I've never had a problem. Save yourself this step and in the rare instance that you have a bad (i.e. moldy) batch, pour it out and toss out the SCOBY. Grab a new one from your SCOBY hotel.

  • I get organic tea and organic sugar from Amazon. They're cheaper and delicious. (

  • I'm thinking about purchasing a relatively large hop sock to put my loose leaf tea in. I want it to have plenty of room to move around but filtering the leaves after steeping is a bit of a pain in the ass.

  • If you add flavor adjuncts directly into the bottles (like crystalized ginger), make sure to cut it small enough that it will still come out after swelling. I've made this mistake.

  • Invest in clear EZ Cap bottles. They're easy and they look nice with the colored kombucha.

    Good luck!

u/Ishmelwot · 2 pointsr/tea

I just bought two cakes from Mandala tea. I got Patty Cake II, Wild Monk, and smaples of Yi Wu Gushu and Nobel Mark.

First off I tried Patty Cake (a ripe) it tasted similar to me as a tea I got on amazon (

The 2nd I tried was the wild monk (a raw pu-er) and it was obviously really easy to tell apart from the ripe pu-er since it was a lot closer to a green tea to me). I then tried a little of the nobel mark and couldn't tell a diffrence between it and patty cake. And if I'm being honest I couldn't tell the diffrence between those and the amazon cake I bought.

SO my question is this. How do I get better at judging pu-er tea? Is it possible the teavana stuff is good (even though its cheap)? Or am I just such a novice that I need to develop a pallet?


u/bkr4f · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

I love this teacup, my grandparents used to get up at 4:45am every morning and drink coffee from these cups. They were thrown out as worthless after they passed. Found one with the same pattern in a thrift store for a nickel and eyes got sweaty real fast.

So here is my teaporn.

What cracks me up, is this is what goes through the first flap in my carryon laptop bag (over 100 airport checkpoints) and not once have I been asked to open the bag, let alone what are all those leafy snack baggies doing in there. for anyone who doesn't understand why carryon, good tea can be expensive and/or hard to source on the road

my favorite cozy tea-anything cinnamon and or cardamon

"Of all the silly nonsense, this is the stupidest tea party I've ever been to in all my life." just can't type that straight-faced. Any tea party is awesome!

I don't need double talk, I need cinnamon spice tea! Seriously. I do need this. It looks utterly amazing. My mouth waters just thinking about it. And more tea is always a necessity. Also, I'm down to half a box of one kind of tea that I love, so it's definitely about time to replace it (considering I had 6 boxes).

Also, /u/damnyoureloud really needs some good screwdrivers. Really. Everyone needs a good set of screwdrivers. And they're colorful! Who doesn't love colorful screwdrivers??

u/kbennett73 · 2 pointsr/intermittentfasting

This cinnamon spice tea from Harney & Sons is amazing. Even without sweetening, it tastes like cinnamon candy. I used to be unable to drink hot tea without some kind of sweetener, but the cinnamon spice tea helped me develop a taste for unsweetened tea. Now I can drink all sorts of black tea, green tea, herbal tea, etc., without adding any sugar or honey. (But don't pay that Amazon price for the cinnamon tea. You can find it at stores like Target and at many grocery stores for around $5 per tin. Also, make sure you get the tin with the little sachets in it, not a box with tea bags in it. The tea bags just don't have the same flavor.)

u/PoppyFlower89 · 2 pointsr/tea

Harney and Sons is a good brand for bagged tea, the tea bag is in a pyramid shape so there is a little more room for the tea to float around in. Lavender is my go to comfort herb, I would say you are safe with anything that has lavender! Plus, they come in a metal tin, she can save it and think of you even after the tea is gone!

If you think she would enjoy peppermint, they also have that in Harney and Sons - to me Peppermint can be a pep up or soothing, depending on my mood.

My personal favorite from them is their Vanilla Comoro:

u/fission___mailed · 2 pointsr/tea

Maybe this is what you're looking for. I've seen it at Asian grocery stores, too.

u/motrya · 2 pointsr/tea

I went through the same thing. I HIGHLY recommend this tea. You can find it at lots of grocery stores (even at some Wal-Marts and Target). It's Hot Cinammon Sunset from Harney & Sons.

The nice thing about this tea is that it tastes sweet (like soda) but doesn't have any sweetener at all. It's the tea that got me hooked on tea!

u/OliveWildly · 2 pointsr/AskWomen

Mmmmm. Harney & Sons has my favorite. The Vanilla Comoro is practically dessert. The Masala Chai with a bit of heavy cream is perfect for work. And I'm completely obsessed with Blood Orange iced tea for summer.

u/medes24 · 2 pointsr/tea

You already have a teapot and variable temp kettle so the initial expense is out of the way. Now you just need some tea to brew!

Harney & Sons Earl Grey Supreme

Harney & Sons Hot Cinnamon Spice

I do recommend you purchase direct from vendors if possible. My favorite vendors (and their styles)

Adagio - Fruity blends and beginners. Offers a wide range of types generally at mid grade quality

Harney & Sons - Chiefly western style brewed tea but has a vast catalogue of midrange teas and an extensive offering of tisanes (other plants brewed like tea)

What-cha High quality teas sourced from all over the world. At times inconsistent in lineup and availability but offers unique teas not found anywhere else

Yunnan Sourcing Essentially the one stop shop for Chinese tea. Offers a vast array of high quality teas sourced directly from the places that grow them. Great product but expansive and complex catalogue that is hard for a newbie to use

You can also buy Luzianne on Amazon for really cheap, which is also useful for anyone who isn't from the South. My mother used to buy 5 boxes every time we went to visit my aunt in Savannah

u/MsZombiePuncher · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

Oh I got this!

  • Harney and Sons has tons of Loose Leaf Tea on Amazon. Personally I suggest the Paris and the Hot Cinnamon Spice. Alternatively they have a sampler. Harney and Sons makes really excellent tea.
  • Tea Forte also has a sampler, but honestly it's not as cost effect, but it'd be great for trying different types.
  • You can also buy some Twinings Loose Leaf tea on Amazon. My personal favorites are Lady Earl Grey, and the Darjeeling.

    (Note, all of these will last you a good bit, especially if you get more than one)

    Also, I know this is a Amazon heavy site, but I also want to suggest Adagio. They have A LOT of tea for really good prices, and you can actually get samplers of any tea for really cheap. I love just get a boatload of samplers. Each sampler contains around 10 cups of tea so that's also a great deal in itself. They have an entire page of sampler collections. I specifically want to suggest the Chai Tea Sampler, the Herbal tea Orchard Sampler, the Oolong Tea Orchard Sampler and the Green Tea Sampler. You also can't go wrong with just going around the site and picking and choosing, although you do save a few bucks with a sampler pack. They also like to just throw samples at you while you're checking out.

    If you find you want to get something on Adagio, I have a 5 dollar off coupon I can give you.

Fellow Earl Gray drinkers... couple questions:

  1. How do you guys manage to make Earl Gray on the go if you don't readily have hot water available.

  2. Whats your favorite brand and how much does it roughly cost? I just bought 2 lbs of which is pretty cheap but a bit weak tasting.
u/Ganondorf_Is_God · 1 pointr/videos

I drink quite a bit of tea and this is by far the best Earl Grey I've ever had:

I just use a 1 gal pitcher with lid from walmart, 5-7 Luzianne (available at most grocery stores here) iced tea bags, and hot tap water (or other hot water if hot tap water scares you). Fill it up plop in tea bags, let it sit out for 3-5 hours then refrigerate. Bam, iced tea.

u/JJSabia · 1 pointr/Cacao

When you buy tea in bulk it isn't all that expensive, maybe only $0.10 per cup at cost to you. With cheap prices you can allow risky purchases as well as making a profit. With Amazon Prime you can cheaply buy lots of fairly good teas in bulk.

1LB Assam Black Tea, $18

1LB Irish Breakfast Tea, $17

1LB Ginger ORange Peach Black, $19

Figuring that each pound of tea makes 150 cups, and you can re seep the leaves once more for a strong flavor you get 300 cups of tea per pound.

For Irish Breakfast Tea you spend roughly $0.06 per cup under the second seep method. You can charge $0.25 and selling 1LB of tea would get you $75, four times the amount of money you spent on your initial purchase.


You don't want to start too big though. At $0.25 per cup people would have to be stupid not to buy it, at least that's what they'd think. But you're going to need to advertise and get the word out. You don't want to spend $100 on tea and realize that certain flavors aren't very popular, or realizing that 300 cups of tea sells out sooner than you expect with hundreds of students, or not selling enough tea to double seep your tea.

You also have logistics to worry about, such as how will you be preparing the tea? Will you make it on the spot, or keep it going thought the day? Will you only be doing it on your break? For preparing the tea I'd recommend an electric kettle. I'd also look into finding something to keep the tea warm.

For advertising you always have loud speaker announcements and the student newspaper, but it would be best to prepare for demand by sampling that demand.


Take some tea from home, brew it and sell it and see if people buy it. If people are interested, if people are coming back then expand the operation and start advertising. Tell people about how much healthier tea is than coffee. Tell them that you only charge $0.25 (or whatever number you chose) over Starbuck's $3. Hell, sell the "Star's Buck" deal for $3 and offer a prepayment good for 15 cups of tea, that's a hell of a good deal verses going to the coffee shop.


Depending on how many customers you have to offer you might start doing some other things too. Charging a quarter per cup you might take inventory of students names and let them pre pay. Steve pays $5 and is good for 20 cups of tea. Sell specialty teas besides black and green for higher prices, offer them as premium teas.

Also some questions you have to ask yourself: hours, are you going to have someone there during the entire school day? Boiling water, seeping tea maybe takes 7 minutes, do you customers have 7 minutes just to get their tea? What about mugs? Do they drink on the spot or bring their own?

Caffeine: It's hard at first (headaches, etc) but you can kick the habit. Short of that, you can buy 100- or 250-piece boxes of black tea for really cheap. Here's 312 for $11! Black tea has more caffeine than green or most other types. It's a little bitter at first if you aren't used to it, but it gets easier to drink... also, don't let it steep for too long, 5 minutes is perfect. Longer than that and it can get really really bitter. Powdered teas IMO taste gross but it's up to you if that's an option.

Eggs are cheap and filling. They are also pretty easy to cook. Scrambled eggs, especially, are very easy and quick.

There's lots of other vegetables out there too. You like broccoli? That's a great start! Walmart and Publix have their place, however if there is a local produce store, they may have better prices on good, seasonal produce. Farmers markets and Asian food stores are also great places to look for good food on the cheap. Anything leafy (spinach/kale/chard/and 'greens' of all sorts) are easy to prepare.

Sometimes I try to stuff myself with vegetables at first, eating a bit more than I feel like... then force myself to wait 10-15 minutes, then move on to meats. It gives the body some time to realize how full it is, and helps to not overeat as much.

Water: don't go on a crazy chug contest, but if you feel like drinking more, then do it. Especially since you are consuming a larger-than-average amount of calories and probably sodium as well. As you lose weight, you may eventually find you don't need quite as much.

I hope this helps a little... best of luck to you!

u/cstratt565 · 1 pointr/goodyearwelt

I'm not sure where you're located, but if you can land your hands on some Harney Tea try anything they make. It's a smaller production place out of New York, that makes all sorts of fantastic teas. Cherry blossom is a favorite, or if you like vanilla flavor, there's a black tea called vanilla comoro that's phenomenal with a touch of honey.

Edit: I decided to not be lazy and looked it up quickly,

Guess they aren't as small as I remember.

u/legendary_ironwood · 1 pointr/tea

I think you missed my point.

> empty bag of tea = $$

> empty bag of tea + tea = $$$

You'd think that empty bags would be dirt cheap, or at least cheaper than an already full bag. Thus, if a full bag of tea can cost you about 8 cents.

For example,

this set of 110 empty bags sells for 5 cents a bag.

this tea is $29.99 for 480 bags of tea, or 6.24 cents/bag.

and this tea is $10.01 for 310 bags or 3.22 cents per bag.

in conclusion - why are empty bags so comparatively expensive?

u/bonobo1 · 1 pointr/unitedkingdom

Amazon has it. Bit expensive though...

u/Buns-n-Buns · 1 pointr/loseit

lets say you still want a burger - 90% lean is 3.89/lb at aldi at the moment, maybe mix in some potato veg and oats to stretch the meat. Maybe grab a cheaper price/lb meat? Cook up 3 days worth of meat at a time. Buy a cheap cheese, buy a cheap bun. figure out a sauce and/or veg that will taste good to you.

Go shopping with a calculator and an eye towards making a cheapo version of your fast food lunch.
