tea is delicious!

1. most anything, but especially chamomile, green tea, or vanilla nut (mm)

2. nothing, i think that fake sugars are too chemical-y and refined sugar is just...well bad. tea is sweet enough for me without stuff added, although occasionally i'll do a bit of milk

I love tea.

1. Earl Grey all the way.

2. Nothing.  I stopped adding milk about 2 years ago and now can't bear it with milk.  It tastes greasy with milk now.

Cinnamon sounds interesting.

1.  Yorkshire tea

2.  Milk!

I like:

English Tea

Oolong Tea

 

OCCASIONALLY hot green tea.

 

I drink them all plain - have never understood the need to put nasty sugar/artificial sweeteners in a drink that tastes so great by itself.

I like most teas and have a variety in the cupboard.

I drink them all straight.  No sugar.  No honey.  No milk.  No lemon.  Nothing but tea.

I love tea!

I drink green tea, white pear tea because it has a sweetness taste,white tea,lemon lift,mandrain orange, really I like them all.

I have started drinking it hot and cold.

Most of the time I add nothing to it. When I do it is honey,lemon or oranges.

cinco de mayo was on the fifth (yesterday)...



:D I like Green Tea and Chamomile tea to it's bitter core..
Nothing added foo'

i drink mint tea because it's the only tea that tastes good to me solo so i don't even need to add anything.

I love Earl Grey, English Breakfast, Irish Breakfast, etc.
Occasionally I put a splash of soy milk in otherwise I just drink it straight.
I have to choke down green tea though I drink it plain to get the health benefits from it.

mmmm...green, white, oolong, pu'erh, black, you name it.

best plain and simple, methinks.

I am a tea snob, it is not my fault, I am otherwise a very down to earth likeable person, but my partner bought me a very expensive, very cool, very functional tea pot with infuser, I drink nothing but organic fair trade looseleaf teas now.

Fav's:

Jasmine Dragon Balls (they're little tea-leaf pearls that unravel as they steep!)

Himalaya Saffron White (rose petals, cardamom, and saffron - white tea - spicy sweetness!)

Ginger (a must have! - great for aiding indigestion and warding off colds)

Spicy Glow Rooibos (rooibos blend with cinnamon, cloves and orange bits)

Chocolate Escape (blended black tea with coconut shavings, roasted erba mate and roobios - smells like kaluha)

Golden Peach White (white tea blended with pure peach and tangerine essence, osthmanthus and jasmine flowers)

Patisserie (black tea blended with almonds, pstachio, peppercorns, cumin and coriander - perfect for winter)

My personal fav: Toasty Almond (herbal tea with almond, apple, cinnamon, and beetroot pieces - smells like breakfast!)

What do I put in my tea? You don't spoil your tea with milk and sugar do you? Well, that's what my mum would say.... Generally I drink them straight otherwise you loose a lot of the flavour, but I have been getting into Tea Latte's as a weekend treat by steaming some soy milk and adding some honey. Typically black teas work best for this, although most herbal tea's don't the toasty almond works great.

For those of you living in TO and wondering where I get these tea's 1/10 of my paycheck is now given to Tealish (walnut street off Queen west)

mostly earl grey, or chai tea

I add honey and milk(strange for an american but I love it, then again I just love milk)

I really like Good earth the original flavor so sweet and spicy. YUM!

I also drink Chai, peppermint ( for some reason it really calms me), and whatever else catches my eye in the store. Good Earth is my fave though ,I will crave it if I run out.

I dont add anything to my tea

I like tea too and I try just about anything that I see!!!  I love getting (and giving) tea as gifts.  (although, I was at my mother's house last month and saw boxes and boxes of tea I have given her over the past five years....maybe I should rethink the giving tea as gifts...)

I like black tea with or without spices or oils like earl grey, chai, english breakfast, and so on and so forth.  I like rooibos, red teas and some green teas.  I tend to favor the strongest flavors

sometimes I add ice or a lemon wedge.  if I make way strong, I'll add some creamer so, I don't know if this works, my teeth don't stain, but mostly I love it plain and room temp

I drink earl grey and orange pekoe. I always have it with milk and sweetner. If I'm out of sweetner I can settle for just milk.

1. Mostly green, english breakfast, or chamomile.

2. Plain. I don't think I've ever actually had tea with soemtihng in it.

1. english breakfast, green&white infusion, yerba mate, and occasionally herbal teas, though they kind of don't count as real tea...

2. a tiny bit of soymilk in the english breakfast, and usually i put in splenda, but sometimes i have it plain : )

1)vanilla strawberry rose
chocolate carmel enchantment (it's chai)
black spiced chai
english breakfast
licorice spice
orange spice
moonlight spiceany kind really...
idk, honestly the list goes on and on...

2) usually nothing, but i'll RARELY/occasionally have almond/soy/regular milk. and i never really put sugar in any more.

...now coffee? whole different story :D

You must go to teavana or something. I love that place they have all hand crafted tea pots w. infusers and you can buy pretty much any kind of loose tea. I love the chia and their caramel. I got hooked on the caramel when one day they just opened the container and filled the store with the smell. oh and im a straight black lipton tea with a little bit of sugar and for a treat cause im not really suppose to have a tea, I either drink the chia or the caramel.

1.  Mostly green, chai, or orange spice.

2.  Nothing unless it's chai, in which case I add a bit of skim milk and maybe a teaspoon of sugar.
