Earl Grey, Orange Pekoe, Chamomile, Lemon Spice, and Black Cherry. I enjoy most teas except for Green tea, that one I really don't care for.

Turkish tea with breakfast, green tea after lunch(sencha, gyokuro or oolong) and throughout most of the day, rooibos tea after supper
I also occasionally drink plain red tea, and Moroccan tea with my friends ya habibi.

I was only an occasional drinker of tea, and quite the coffee achiever, but health issues have made me have to avoid the caffeine & acidity of coffee. It's easy to find a coffee without one or the other, but not both, and then I'm also limited to the type and flavor of coffee that way. So now I'm a tea addict because my situation had forced me to go out and try new things when I was looking for a coffee replacement. I found my coffee replacement, Kaffree, Postum (when they had it), & Roastaroma tea, but it's not exactly the same (not strong enough in flavor for that coffee flavor fix).

My current #1 cold drink is now iced black tea with crushed lemon slices sweetened with stevia. #2 is soymilk.

I heard black tea isn't so good for your digestive system (that's why I had tried not to drink so much of it) and that if you do drink it you should have it with milk. Apparently something in the milk keeps whatever's bad in the black tea from sticking on the walls of your digestive system thus reducing or eliminating whatever cancer risk black tea has......at least that's what I heard. I don't know how true that is.

Bunch of posers and ponces in this thread. This is the correct way to drink tea:

- whatever's cheap
- with lots of milk and one sugar (maybe two)
- at least half a dozen mugs every day


Most teas are cheap, especially compared to coffee. You don't really want to put milk in every tea. In some teas the acidity will make the milk curdle (eww.. ) making a pretty nasty cup of tea.

I suppose that should be "cheapest" then, although that wouldn't necessarily be true because I don't insist on supermarket own-brand all the time, I'm just expressing a preference for "normal" tea while pointing out the price difference compared to most teas that have actual names.

I think the issue of acidity probably goes away when you consider that, because you'll never have trouble with milk if you're using tea that hasn't got a name besides "Tetley", "PG Tips", or if I'm feeling especially not-fancy, "Tesco everyday value".

Well, unless someone switches your sugar for citric acid crystals. My brother did that to me once, it was hilarious.

I drink tea and coffee, but really do prefer tea. The problem is there aren't very many places where you can get a properly brewed cup of loose leaf tea, where as it's pretty easy to find amazing coffee in Seattle. I admit I am rather picky about my tea, but it's just amazing how often it isn't brewed right! I cringe when I see people using boiling water and long steep times for green tea... and then they wonder why it's bitter!

My favorite is definitely green tea. I'll drink nearly any variety aside from the smokey flavored roasted ones. I don't like black tea much, but I'll drink it iced and I love Thai tea (it's nearly the only tea I'll drink with anything added to it, though a little bit of apple juice in iced genmaicha is awesome!). Jasmine pearls and oolongs are quite yummy too. I don't really like spiced teas and I'm allergic to ginger (a burning, swollen throat is no fun!). :-(

I don't like most teas that are bottled since most have added sweeteners and taste nothing like tea, but I don't mind the Ito en Oi Ocha green teas. I also found a few varieties in the vending machines in Japan that were really good. The apple tea was definitely my favorite and worth trying if you ever get the chance!
