Republic of Tea should just automatically take a portion of my paycheck each month. I love all their teas! My favorite right now is their Cranberry Blood Orange black tea that I'll drink hot with just a little bit of sugar. Their Orange Blossom white tea is great if you want a lighter, delicate sort of taste and the Peppermint Chocolate roobios gets rid of craving something sweet.

For some reason, I'm on an Earl Grey kick. I went and bought several different brands at the grocery store to see which one I liked better. Right now, the Twinnings Classic Earl Grey and Revolution Tea's Lavender Earl Grey are my favorites. The Revolution brand is fantastic iced as well.

I'm working on replacing my soda and energy drink addiction with teas, and it's going well so far. I drink Lipton cold brew regularly in place of all soda, but I do still drink one Monster energy daily. But no other soda...yay! With the iced tea I only our lemon in it. If I have green tea I need a little stevia or honey. Most of the herbals I like plain. I love mint teas ans sometimes add stevia, sometimes lemon, sometimes nothing. I prefer all teas iced in the summer, hot in the winter.

Ooh, brilliant idea! I'd love that.

I'm a tea fan, drink about 5 cups a day. I drink Tazo and Celestial Seasonings the most often. My first cup of the day is an ordinary black, English breakfast type of tea; no sugar but always some milk or I get nauseous (the tannins?). For that first cup, I'm not picky about the brand.

My favorite brand is Republic of Tea, but they exceed my tea budget so I only get that a few times a year.

White is my fave, followed by black in all its forms. I've only liked a few green teas.

Tea makes me really happy.

Oooh, I forgot about Tazo! I'm sipping on a cup of Zen right now. Very minty with a kind of lemongrass background.

I get teased about my drinking problem at work because at any given time I have "Peach bellini" "Mint Mojito", "Cosmo" and "Pina Colada" tea on my desk! I love love love tea!

I just got another David's tea sampler as a bridesmaid's gift, gotta say I'm loving it all!

I buy a big box of bagged green tea from Sam's and it is one of the best tasting green teas around and affordable. -- I make 2 big mugs each morning (30 oz) and sometimes I brew an extra mug for later and enjoy it iced. I get most of my water intake from tea

You guys have all given me some great ideas and I greatly appreciate your input!

@Only Believe don't feel too bad, before I moved to Pennsylvania, I thought that iced tea was the only tea that mattered (I moved from Texas, where it's always so warm!). But this winter I discovered the need for something a little warmer and I'm trying to expand my horizons lol

I love Ice Tea. My favorites being Tazo Green Tea. I make it with my K cup machine, it's so easy. I also like to drink Lipton ice tea. I tend to drink way too much of it, but it's got so many health benefits so it's ok.

I love sweet tea from the south. I miss the stuff, but I guess I should be thankful I moved to Nevada; where they have never heard of sweet tea. Or the real stuff I should say. The 'sweet' tea up here sucks.

That aside, I love the Yogi detox tea with some honey mixed in. The dandelion gives it a spicy punch, I think?? I may be wrong. Also like this locally brewed stuff that is chocolate coconut. It tastes good, even without honey added sweeteners.

Thinking I may try a few off of Davids Tea!! It all looks so divine.
