    I mostly drink more traditional black teas like Keemun, Assam and Darjeeling, but I am certainly not stranger to Oolongs or Gunpowder. Not so much flavoured teas, the only one that I really like is Laichee (sometimes also transcribed Lichee), and that is well worth a try,

    I do not like to buy tea in bags, or tea bags. I want to smell it before I but it, and the really good stuff does not come in a bag anyway.

    I drink lots of tazo brand but I'm thinking of boycotting starbucks due to the owners/ founders being jewish and according to someone I worked with (who is a soldier and works with the secret service) has his own secret service detail

    The USA taxpayers are paying to protect jewish billionaires big surprise.

    I love tea

    I have been really enjoying a brand called "Two Leaves and a Bud" lately, especially their Alpine Berry tea. It has such a lovely color when it's done steeping because it is made with hibiscus and blackberry. Sometimes if I can't sleep or I have a headache I have chamomile tea. I also like green tea or black tea in the morning.

    I've also been experimenting with making my own blends of herbal tea using loose leaves from the health food store. My favorite that I've made has lavender, dried elderberries, chamomile, and whole rose blossoms. Sounds kind of weird, I know, but it's really nice and relaxing.

    Here's an up-close picture of it:

    Two Leaves and a Bud make great tea.
    Aside from the orthodox approaches to tea, I enjoy Kombucha tea. I thought it tasted like cleaning astrigent at first, but it's grown on me, my favorite being the Green tea variant.

    Green tea is one of my addictions in life. I have an entire stockpile here in my kitchen, been drinking it almost every morning. A much healthier alternative to morning coffee, and tastes great. My own favorite is green tea with berries and a long almondy aftertaste, but black tea and chamomile are also awesome.

    OTOH, you have to make sure you buy the right organic brands, with tea leaves and not just shitty fillers. Also, you get major health benefits from drinking an organic white/green tea mix.

    I'm way too lazy to brew my own herbal tea combos, but that sounds great. Have to try this myself sometime.

    I like tea and drink it hot for breakfast, as an afternoon drink with cookies (Macarons are a nice type of cookie for accompanying the afternoon tea), but also medicinally. I also drink it cold in the form of ice tea as a more natural alternative to fizzy drinks and commercial juices. I prefer both the more traditional chamomile, linden, jasmine, peppermint, nettle, herbal teas like hibiscus, rose(hip), cherry blossom, St. John's Wort but also fruity flavors like lemon/citrus, tangerine, raspberry, etc. My friend recommended Rooibos, a South African red tea.


    I've tried it and it's quite nice and flavorful as well. To note that Rooibos tea does not contain caffeine. It is a tea that both tastes good and has medicinal benefits (antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, anti-aging, anxiety relief, good for management of metabolic disturbances) for which it has gotten a lot of attention from researchers. Green rooibos carries a malty and slightly grassy flavour somewhat different from its red counterpart.

    In terms of brands Lipton, Teekanne, Julius Meinl or Twinings are names I can think of. Most of them offer a wide variety of flavors, ranging from the usual/traditional types to modern or exotic combinations like apple - cinnamon, passion fruit, Marrakesh mint or Brazilian lime.

    I generally like my tea sweet so I will add sugar or honey to it. If I am making ice tea then I will add some pieces of fruit (usually slices of lemon, lime or orange), accompanied by mint leaves but also berries depending on the type of tea I will be having. I never add milk to my tea and to be honest, I've never really understood the combination... the Brits in particular like it. Well, to each his own.

    In winter or during cold weather, if I really want to spice my tea up with something, I will add a dash of rum. Jägertee has become a popular après-ski drink in the Alps, made by mixing black tea with rum, red wine, plum brandy, orange juice and various spices.

    In summer I drink iced tea, either homemade or the brands Pfanner, Lipton, Nestea, Rauch, OKF, AriZona. Pfanner has some interesting color-based combinations - green (lemon - prickly pear), yellow (lemon - physalis) and red (lemon - pomegranate). OKF mixes conventional tea drinks with aloe.

    I am a tea-drinker, hot, strong, 1 sugar and a spot of milk (and the pot must be warmed first!).

    It is the best drink in the world (even dare I say, as a beer swigger and brewer, better than beer!). Good for hot weather and cool..

    My favourite tipple is the smokey delight of Lapsang Souchong with Rooibos and Earl Grey a close second.

    Rooibos is the most wonderful tea for a refreshing, hot and healthy sustaining drink in the day (black and sweet) especially in the heat of the Highveld.
