Let's hear it for the tea drinkers!

I just ordered my next batch of green tea from Adagio. So far my favorite is the Citron Green Tea. I'm not much for unflavored green teas, but the citron flavor is incredible. What are your favorite types/flavors of teas and where do you get them? I also like rooibos tea, but I prefer Green just a tad. White is my favorite, but it's just too darn expensive.

Stash has a really nice green/white "fusion" tea that I like.

My stepmom gave me Traditional Medicinals Echinacea Plus when I was sick and it is so comforting and good I drink it now even when I'm healthy.

Re: Let's hear it for the tea drinkers!

For starters I like some good old Earl Grey.

Some nice Olong Green Tea is always tasty.

The local tea house has an excellent herb tea with peppermint, hemp, sunflower and some spices which is very tasty and relaxing.

These are my favorites, but I have about 20 different teas at home all the time...

I love adagio, they have some great stuff. Try going to adagio.com/diggnation the mintastic is great, if you like mint that is. I also love the green and white teas as well. I will have to try their citron.

Re: Let's hear it for the tea drinkers!

i have a question for those in England perhaps. is it standard to drink regular tea with milk and sugar? that is how i have always had it and i heard it is standard over by you to do it that way. i use lipton tea for that and it's great.

Totally depends.

There are the purists, who do not add anything into the tea and use special tea pots only (tea bags are a big no no).

There are those who use milk and sugar and drink away, you should always take care not to add to much milk though.

There are several inbetween which use no milk but sugar etc.
Also different types of sugar and honey are very common, like brown sugar, raputura, wood honey, sunflower honey etc. Varies greatly depending on where in Europe or UK you are located.

Also when you get to eastern Europe, there is the "Chai" which comes from arabian culture and is made quite differently. Usually a very strong tea with added flavours.

If you are using tea bags, Lipton would not be my first choice. From the widely available brands Twinings is OK, but I almost exclusively get my tea from a local tea store, they mix my own mixtures and use very good imported teas.

Re: Let's hear it for the tea drinkers!

Hot tea is pretty much mandatory here for breakfast. Any of you guys buy STASH tea? stashtea.com They have become a much larger company in the past few decades but make some great tea. My faves are the black or green... Darjeeling, Earl Gray, English Breakfast to name a few.

Tetley or Lipton are OK in a pinch (better than alot of more expensive teas) and good for brewing iced tea (add lemon). .. glen

ps - never ever w/ milk. yuk.
