Default Tea, glorious tea!

Tea is one of my favourite drinks.

I find it a nice boost in the afternoon at work and having a nice cup of chamomile tea 1/2 hour before bed helps me to fall asleep at night. Here are some of my favorites

Celestial Seasonings:

Sugar Plum Fairy- slightly sweet so I don't take sugar with it
Ginger bread -mmmmm Christmas in a cup
Cammomile
Sleepytime tea
Morning Thunder
Peppermint- I drink this when I have an upset stomach

Tetley:
Echinacea
Gingseng and lemon
Decaf Green tea
Decaf Earl Grey

Yogi Tea:
Chai
Bedtime tea

I love Lemon and Ginger from Twinings.. . preferably with a few teddy grahams
And from when I lived in Ireland my favorite "regular" tea is Lyons with a little milk and sugar
Mauvaisroux What is Morning Thunder? Is it kind of a pick me up tea?

mmmmmmmmm i love tea as well and it is getting to be the perfect tea drinking weather. right now i am on a mint tea and green tea kick. green tea with mint, green tea with ginger, green tea with mate ( one of my fav's). i've also been chugging throat coat, echinacea plus and cold care tea because i feel a bug coming on.i drink tea all year around but i appreciate it so much more when it starts getting cold outside.

I love tea. When I went to England, I was just taken with the idea of "tea time." (Some of you remember, I'm sure). Thanks for the reminder. I've been so busy, I forgot how much fun it is.

Like Lyria, I love a good black tea. One of my favorite is Awake from Tazo. I also love English Breakfast Tea. I take it with cream and sugar and enjoy every sip of it (especially when running around England on a blustery day).

I also love Thai tea, Chai tea and any tea served in a Chinese Restaurant... of course, I bought a tea from the Chinese Market called Chinese Restaurant Tea and it tasted nothing like it.

I prefer my tea loose (as opposed to in bags) and love tea cups.... although I own only one and it's a Chinese tea cup that has a lid so your tea doesn't get cold.

Oh, yes... and I hate coffee.

I love Chai tea with milk and Splenda! It smells/tastes like pumpkin pie with none of the guilt...

Speaking of Chinese restaurant tea, I had some iced tea at one that tasted like oranges. Just a hint, and soooooo good! They're out of business now or I'd ask. Anybody know what kind it is?

Interesting thread on tea. I'm a tea drinker, too. Currently I'm drinking decaf Typhoo. It's not bad. Doesn't strip the tastebuds off your tongue like some.

It sure hurts to pass on the scones and clotted cream, though.

Mamacita - I love clotted cream and scones. It is a sad world that I can't have them! Sigh. I do buy a pria bar (110 calories) and save it with my tea so I can feel like I'm having some yummy sweet thing with my tea.

There is this one kind from Stash that's Caramel Creme Decaf. I swear I don't know how they've done it but if you add a splash of fat free milk and some splenda, it taste like there's caramel in your tea. Dear god it's good.
