If You're a Tea Drinker.....

I have a tea cabinet, and also a rolling shelf that is...80% tea.
(I am one of two people in about 2-3 generations of my family that just does not like coffee. The smell alone makes me feel a bit gross. Which sucks when you're in the state that created starbucks.)

I loooooove Chai. I know it just means tea....and given the HUGE variety in chai, I'll say just the mix of black tea and spices is just ahhhh the best. I have a bunch of different bag types, but far more loose leaf brands and varieties. (I've mixed my own sometimes too)
(I like Adagio's Thai Tea a lot. The lemongrass and coconut make it an interesting flavor)

But I will drink pretty much any tea that is put in front of me. Just plain green or oolong make me happy if I want something fairly quick and basic.
I've also got quite a stockpiling of medicinal herbs (not THAT kind) so I'll tend to make up different types of teas if i'm feeling a bit under the weather.

Recently though, I've discovered I like Yogi's Throat Comfort which has a lot of licorice root in it, and...I have my entire life hated licorice candy..and I had NO idea that Licorice candy is flavored more with anise or fennel than it is actually Licorice..and it turns out I actually really like licorice root. Still hate licorice candy.
(although I will put plenty of anise and fennel in my chai or food things...just..ugh not by itself.)

Hrm well my favourites are:
1. Earl Grey - With a slice of Lemon
2: Assam by Twinings
3. Chamomile and Honey
4. English Breakfast / 1706 Strong Breakfast by Twinings
5. Darjeeling
6. PG Tips - with one sugar and lots of milk
7. Green

Not much I really dislike apart from tea with liquorice in it... BLEGH >_<

No love for Earl Grey? I salute your fine taste in ginger:)


It's too strong for my tastes, but the rest of my family likes Earl Grey. I've seen something called "Lady Grey" do you know if that is the lighter version? .....Yes, I am a ginger addict.


Aye, that's what Lady Grey is supposed to be, although I've never had it.

Tea is the only thing I drink besides the occasional beers or sake.

Tend to prefer- Green tea, Oolong, Earl Grey, English Breakfast, regular Black tea, and on occasion a red tea.

Some of my favourites:

Darjeeling, preferably a nice second flush from a good tea estate. Darjeeling oolongs are often very good, but they can be hard to find.
Light/greenish oolongs (especially the Taiwanese ones)
Yunnan-based Earl Grey
Long Jing and Pi Lo Chun
Gyokuro and Shincha among the Japanese teas

It is Polish tea, quite delicious

Huge fan of tea! A great accompaniment when curled up in bed watching crunchyroll I mostly drink the usual black tea bag varieties for a caffeine fix, but like to experiment with loose-leaf and herbal tea varieties.

Top favourites:
- Earl Grey
- Chai
- Rooibos (depending on the flavour mix)
- Vanilla or caramel flavoured black teas

I don't mind green tea either

I only like black tea. All other tea MUST have honey and/or sugar in it for me to down it without feeling icky.
