    Hey there, Fr. Seraphim –

    As a thorough tea snob myself, I was really excited to hear you talk about how much better loose tea is than teabags. Loose tea doesn’t need to be expensive, though – although some of it is. (I’m in grad school. I have no money. I wouldn’t recommend becoming more poor just because of tea.) However, you might want to peruse UptonTea.com, which is the place I regularly order tea from. They have a really huge selection, and with each order of tea are instructions of how to make it (water temp, how long to brew, how much loose tea per serving, etc.). I notice they also ship internationally. (And if you like Early Grey, you might want to do a search for their Rooibos Earl Grey, which is one of my favorites; it’s herbal, so it’s naturally decaf, and it’s VERY bergamont-y smelling.)

    Hope you’ll become a real tea snob! 🙂
