I like Taiwanese high mountain oolongs especially the Li Shan varietal really is something else if grown and prepared properly <3


Yeah,Lishan oolong is amazing. My husband is first generation Taiwanese American, whenever he visits his parents in LA, they send him home with bags of Alishan and Lishan oolongs. They always get the good, really expensive stuff, more than I would ever pay for tea, so I appreciate them giving it to us.

I love tea
Most of the teas I drink, I don't have a name for because I just pilfer them from my parents who frequently get them as gifts.
My top two would have to be earl grey and osmanthus tea though!

With earl grey, I'm usually not looking for anything fancy, but just something tasty and familiar I can drink. I'll add milk and sugar to cheaper brands, but every once in a while I'll happen upon one that's so good, adding anything would be a crime.

Osmanthus tea isn't really a "tea". It's just some yellow flowers steeping in water. But it's so good. It's light and delicately floral, and it's really delicious lightly sweetened. My favorite use of it isn't even to drink. It's really good to add into or make into desserts. Osmanthus jelly is delicious. I'd like to try using the flowers in cupcakes and frostings in the future.

Honorable mention is barley tea, which is unbeatable on a hot day.

Coffee: I only like iced coffee, so I'll say my favorite is Vanilla Iced Coffee (I also like Lattes and Frapps if you count those as coffee).

Tea: My favorite is Sweetened Iced Green Tea, but I like any iced tea as long as it's sweetened.

Call me a coffee pleb, but I don't care too much about the roast of beans or whatever. What I care about is how it is made into a godly drink.

For me, eggnog, white chocolate and white coffee served on ice makes the most heavenly drink you could ever consume. It's one of those few things for me that the first time I had it, I swear i could hear angels sing.

On the other end of the spectrum, there is the "dirty morning" 2 shots espresso in 8 ounces of orange juice. Tastes like acidic shit, but it sobers you up for a morning like almost nothing else.

Hi I am in post secondary school and my group is conducting a market research study with a quick 2 minute survey regarding tea drinkers. I would love the participation of the reddit tea community!
Thanks,

I'm a heavy drinker, and my favorite is green tea. Pretty much, just about any kind of tea where I don't need to add sugar to taste it would be great. I drink all sorts of different teas, but with green tea it's much easier to prepare, and it's quite cheap compared to the other stuff like white or oolong. I also drink lots of oolong and black tea as well, but I must prepare those with extreme care or else they become too bitter for me. Living in the Seattle area, my favorite tea is the green-jasmine mixture from Market Spice in Pike's Market as those leaves give quite a great fragrance, all while the taste is simply amazing, and it is reasonably priced.

I pretty much a hardcore tea drinker... I am open to pretty much anything, though probably my go to for loose teas is Adagio Teas, probably as I love the fact you can make custom blends and then choose to either save them for your own pleasure or share them with all. I also like there ChariTEA program, which allows you to have a portion of proceeds made from custom blends you share to go to a charity of choice...

I personally made 4 Star Wars inspired blends with each being a ChariTEA recipient... one goes to Make A Wish (Rebel Princess), one for the Trevor Project (Ashla) and 2 for the Wounded Warrior Project (Mandalorian Shig & Bogan)...
