    Smile Tea Anyone?

    A question for the tea drinkers amongst us... ... What are you favourite types of tea?

    Here's a pretty comprehensive list on this site : http://www.tea.co.uk/index.php?pgId=7 (you'll find the types of tea listed under their country of origin to the left of the main text).



    I've recently just discovered White Tea, which is the least processed, and derived from the tips of the plant (which are covered in fine white "hairs", hence the name "white tea")... it is the smoothest, naturally sweetest tea I've ever tasted... just divine!

    But other than that, I love Dilmah Jasmine tea (Green tea with Jasmine petals added) and organic Ginger tea with Lemongrass. Out of the Black teas, Twinings Irish Breakfast is my favourite.

    I never take sugar with tea either... just a dash of milk in Black tea... but all other teas I take black.

    i drink earl grey (no sugar, no milk) 95% of the time because i really like the smell of bergamot.
    some times i drink japanese green tea (i like the nutty flavour, but it doesn't smell very good imo) or jasmine green tea.

    however green tea ice cream is by far my favourite tea product

    I'm from the American south, I drink sweet iced tea. Sometimes with lemon!
    I use nestea when I make it. I prefer Bojangles' tea if I can get it.

    In fall and winter I am especially fond of spiced tea or chai, year round I really enjoy almost all kinds of good quality tea from japanese buckwheat tea to strawberry leaf(good for pregnant women) to ginger or white tea or sassafras root. I do not like coffee but teas and tisanes are my favorite drink. Right now I am drinking some Raspberry leaf/strawberry leaf/nettle/spearmint/fennel/rosehip/alfalfa/lemon verbena tea. It is really yummy in a spicy, herbal and slightly astringent way. No honey needed.

    I really enjoy true teas wither black, oolong, green or white but there is something really nice about the traditional european herbals and fruit teas. THe German dried fruit teas are a real treat with a touch of honey as are the French tea lattes especially lavender or rose.

    My favorite brand of tea is Adiago. Nothing sold in stores compares and I won't drink any other brand of tea. They have such a wide variety of quality flavored teas. I tend to enjoy chocolate the most. The fruit flavors teas are suiting for summer. Strawberry is the nicest to sniff. I keep a container of it on my desk to open every now and then. Seasonal flavors like christmas, pumpkin and caramel apple can be very interesting and fun to sip. Some of the white tea comes in the form of lovely bell-shapes and other beautiful designs.

    I drink my tea hot, without sugar, milk or lemon. The only tea I drink cold, sweet and lemony is iced tea.

    I'm not sure if I understand you correctly when you say white tea is made from the "tips of the plant", but white tea is simply made from young leaves and young flower buds (when still covered in fine hairs) of the the Camellia tea plant.
