Default Favorite herbal/flavored teas

I know it is cold outside so tea is helping me stay warm inside.

Lately, I'm so addicted to Bengal Spice tea from Celestial Seasonings. Normally, I don't like cinnamon as a major taste in tea but it works in this tea.

What are others favorite herbal teas?

Earl Gray is my absolute number one! I've recently gotten addicted to the Sugar cookie sleigh ride thanks to a post here on 3 fat chicks. I tried the Gingerbread Spice one from Celestial Seasonings and don't like it as well. I also love Spearmint and Chai on occasion.

Good Earth (Original flavor~which is very cinnamon-y)
Green Chai
Moroccan Mint (Yum!)
Jasmin is good too!

Has anyone tried the Gypsy teas? The ones in the round tins. I keep meaning to try them and they have lots of interesting sounding flavors.

I love the Gypsy teas, the tins are beautiful and they taste good too. They can be pricey though. I have tried several flavors (not all herbal) and have loved them all. They had a great lemony one that I really liked!

If we're talking about all teas (not just herbal), I also love:

Harney & Sons Chinese Flower

Any market spice tea, but especially the raspberry

I most commonly drink White Tea, though... but I don't really like the taste, lol. I drink it because it's good for me.

I normally have Black Lipton tea with sugar, but I am trying to cut down on my sugar intake. As a result, I'm looking into other tea flavors....I'm currently trying out Celestial Seasonings to see how that goes....any other ideas would be appreciated!

Peppermint -- especially this time of year (I usually get Twinings or Celestial Seasonings) -- it also aids in digestion.
I love Green Tea -- there is a Zen blend from Tazo with lemongrass and spearmint which I really enjoy, but it's loose tea which some people don't like.. although it comes in a kit so it has the infuser and everything included.
I don't know if you're allowing yourself honey, but I like raw honey in green tea.
