Per Cooks Illustrated any generic supermarket black tea will work. I personally like the Tazo Awake.

This discussion has made me very thirsty -- PaulJoseph, love your photo/recipes. Tea dust? I'll use the Russian tea, which is very small and assertive.

I suggest a combination of Assam and Darjeeling with spices, but honestly, the best blend I have found is available at Adivasi:
