    I've been drinking Nerada tea and Australian breakfast lately. I like flavoured teas (like peppermint, etc) in moderation, but I can never drink a full cup.

    Frankly, I need to drink more tea. I consume too much coffee.

    However, when I do venture to my tea collection I mix my loose tisanes together to produce different flavours. Then I combine them with my flavoured blacks.

    I made a fruity, vanilla, green tea once and it it was lovely. The green tea was a Gorgeous Geisha one from T2 - this tea holds the earthy flavour of normal green tea, but with a more delicate flavour. The leaves a Chinese ones (I think).

    Tea for me a ritual. It's very calming to make. There's specific methods of brewing for different types.I take pleasure in the time spent warming the pots, steeping the leaves at the right temperatures, etc. It helps me think. It's kind of like cooking, except with more instant gratification. tehe

    I'm southern through and through: I only drink extra sweet iced tea. If it doesn't taste like syrup, it doesn't have enough sugar in it! Hehe.

    Earl Grey, English Tea, Vanilla tea... I love most of them.

    I love tea. I would drink it all day if I could. If I were rich, I would have a teacup shaped swimming pool, and it would be filled with a tea of my choice everyday for me to swim in.

    That sounds like it tastes nice.

    I got some loose teas yesterday - Just Rose, which is rosebuds and I tried a cup yesterday, was an interesting flavour, and Sleep Tight, haven't tried that yet.

    Is tea in Europe different than tea in America?

    I tried tea a lot of times and never really liked it until I tried tea at a Chinese restaurant. But when I tried tea at a cafe in Japan, oh my god. Happy face I don't know the names of them and I don't care. They are amazing. From a tea-disliker, that's (was) a compliment to them.

    Honestly, I hate tea.
    I think it's bitter and has no taste and to me, it's just a really boring beverage. Neutral

    I love tea. I drink anywhere from four - eight cups a day generally. I'm not so hot on fruit tea though, it usually is just too sickly for me. I love tea that needs milk, and iced-tea (even though I don't really count it as 'tea'.)

    A good strong English tea. Twining's English Breakfast is real good, but my personal favourite is Yorkshire Tea Gold. Mmmmm. I also love chai tea, but that's because when I went to India we drank a lot of masala tea, and although it's not the same, chai tea reminds me of it. ^-^

    Since becoming pregnant the only tea I can drink is peppermint tea, everything else makes me feel sick!

    I have a tea cupboard. I'm obsessed. I have a tea pot in there as well as my favorite two mugs and probably thirty different types of tea.

    My favorite tea right now is a mango-passionfruit herbal tea. It doesn't have caffeine but it tastes wonderful. Then I have a mild mint tea that I'm waiting until it gets super cold out to try tehe

    I love tea and, like Saul Hudson, have an entire cabinet of it in my house. Not a fan of white tea but I love green and especially black tea. My favorite is any kind of strong chai tea (of course tehe), especially ones with a sweet additional flavor like vanilla or caramel. I don't like fruit-flavored teas except blueberry. I love blueberry tea. I'm drinking a cup of it right now. Mr. Green

    In our culture, tea is a basic neccesaty of life. We drink it almost three times a day or more. Anyday, everyday, anywhere we must have tea. And it is always a different type/flavour. Tea is amazing and I do not think I could live without it.

    My favorite tea is Moroccan mint from Numi. It's not biting like most mint flavors; it's ... full-flavored. It's hard to describe. I also like Numi's jasmine green. Chamomile is good. I can't stand lemon tea or chai.

    My favourite brand of all time has to be Celestial. Their packaging is cute and Eco friendly and the tea is out of this world. In Love As a rule Sleepy Time, Sleepy Time Xtra, Sleepy Time Vanilla, and Peppermint are my favourite flavours. They're all in my cupboard as I type this. tehe (can you tell I drink it mostly before bed?)

    I was always like... Obsessed with tea and I think I posted here way back about drinking maybe like 4-5 cups in a day. Only it's kind of tripled and I usually drink 15 cups of tea in a day now Weird

    I'm really obsessed with Whittard's strawberry & vanilla roobios right now. And this Duchess Grey stuff I picked up cheap in Sainsbury's which is like a cross between Earl and Lady Grey ahhh it's so good. And Whittard's instant Dreamtime and their ginger beer stuff.

    Oh and Earl Grey with lavender. That stuff is the nectar of the gods. And I really want to try this liquorice Earl Grey but that stuff is kind of like £5 for like fifteen bags and I can't justify spending that right now.

    I need to go up central London and go Twinings/Whittards/Tea Palace sometime soon. Because apparently two full tea caddies with space for 230+ teabags, plus maybe twenty different boxed varieties and maybe five tins of instant stuff isn't enough XD
