I've noticed there's a Coffee thread but not a Tea thread :P

Who here loves tea?

I happen to be a fan of tea :P

Well, I'm a coffee addict, but in winter I prefer drinking tea instead of water to keep myself warm :)

What kinds of tea do you drink Mistery/Smidget :?

Orange pekoe is probably the most common :P
Camomile is really good in the morning :D
Chai wakes you up a bit too :P
Green tea is great for lunch, especially the pomegranate
Earl grey is my all time favorite tea :D
(I usually drink only those kinds :P)
Sometime in the future i'd like to try those asian flowering tea's :D

Uh, I like mint tea for upset stomach, chamomile tea with a bit of honey for sore throat, and green tea when I want to freshen up my taste buds after heavy and greasy meal. But my all time favorite is Earl Grey. It just tastes good and smells divine :)

I don't drink tea much, but surely like a cup of tea on occasions.
My favourites are jasmine tea, green tea and mint tea.
A few time a year I drink chamomile tea and nettle tea.
Earl grey I only drink with my grandfather, it's his favourite tea.

Not a big tea fan...

I do drink different flavors from time to time. Normally when I am sick, stressed, or dealing with insomnia, though. And I almost always add honey or sugar to it. :P My co-workers had me try Earl Gray with 1/2 and 1/2 and a bunch of honey. THAT tasted good! :D

@Heart....I was surprised to see you like Chamomile tea in the morning, as it's known for it's qualities to help you relax and "wind down." Often times, to my knowledge, people drink it before bed, or also to reduce stress. Interesting that it helps you in the a.m. :D

I've never tried it with honey, but with half and half and it does taste so good! :D

I enjoy it in the morning because it helps when I sometimes have headaches in the morning, other than that I just enjoy the taste, I never really feel the "Relaxing" effect of the tea though, like how the caffeine in Coffee doesn't really keep me up :P

Mistery - It seems alot of people enjoy mint tea :hmm: I've never tried it but I will pick up a box and see how it tastes :)

I love tea! I usually forget about it though, don't drink much of anything during the day. I like Jasmine, mint, orange, chamomile, green, apple cinnamon, chai, Earl Grey, lemon, Ginger, and more. I don't really like Oolong tea, it's kind of a little odd for me. My dad keeps drinking Gunpowder tea and wants me to try it. I haven't yet.

I used to drink tea, but then I fell in love with coffee. I still drink it, but not very often. I like my tea in a variety of ways, and I'll drink a bunch of different types. It all depends on what I have on-hand, and what mood I'm in.

I like Lady Earl Grey, Roobios, lemon, English Breakfast, peppermint, nectarine...it really depends on how I'm feeling and what's available.

I love iced tea in the summer,I can literally drink a gallon of it & since I was born in the Deep South I like it sweet :D

My English friend says that of all our colonial customs he feels that drinking iced tea is the most barbaric & uncivilized :lol:
