I always have a few flavours in the cupboard since I like to have the option to switch :) So at this moment I have jasmin-orangeblossom, green tea apple-kiwi, Russian Earl Grey, Sencha, green tea mint and this loose fruit tea which needs a filter to be drinked.
When its winter season I also buy this winter tea :)

I like peppermint tea best. I'll drink pretty much any type of tea as long as it doesn't have any sweetener added to it.

I absolutely love lavender tea. Unfortunately it's usually too expensive for me to get on a regular basis!

I don't like tea as much, it NEVER taste what I expect when I smell them :cry:

I have to agree with this when it comes to fruit herbal teas. They always smell so nice and then it's like.... bleh water  :lol: There is the odd exception - I had quite a nice peach flavoured one at a friend's house once.

I AM an avid tea drinker however (earl grey and english breakfast). And I do like peppermint tea. I very rarely drink coffee - maybe a flat white on the weekend every now and then. And only if my husband makes it, lol  :lol:

I am not a super traditionalist though - I do like milk in my tea. So much so that I was driven to desperation yesterday. My work only has that crap, storage fake carton milk. No one ever marks the carton as to when it has been opened, and I've had my fill of frikken black tea there. As soon as my lunch break hit I shot home (a five minute drive). I boiled that darn kettle and let it brew and cool as I ate my lunch, and then just before I had to get back to work, enjoyed the best cup of tea ever.... WITH MILK!!!

Sometimes, you just need a good cuppa  ;)

You make me curious :) What do you call expensive?

Most of my teas are bought on offer like 2 for euro or buy 1 get the 2nd free. But I have to be honest those are tea bags.

I'm a coffee drinker but I do love tea as well! I usually have tea in the evening, so I try to go for low caffeine options. I love fruit/herbal infusions, one of the most exciting ones I've tried had sage in it...

Some of my favourite brands are Clipper and Pukka. Anything with lemon and ginger is great, as well as red berries. That said, I do enjoy black and green tea also. I currently have a bag of loose leaf, fine quality oolong - it's totally delicious!

I love green tea.  Mint tea is  the best.  But black tea can make me very sick on an empty stomach.  I have no idea why because I like the taste.   :(

Yes but NOT the tea they have here in China. Its was too strong and bitter for me. 

my favorite is licorice spice because it is naturally sweet and Sleepytime tea. Im not sure what flavor it is - minty camomile (sp?) flavor. And I love milk tea.
At home, I normally be the STASH brand .

If I'm honest I don't drink tea much, I'm more of a hot chocolate person :blush: But I prefer tea over coffee, I'm just not a coffee fan at all.
If I do want a cup of tea I'd go for an ice tea, Lipton peach iced tea is a definite! I also like a hot peppermint tea now and then or just regular old tea with sweetener  :lol: I've always got to have lots of milk in my hot drinks because I like to drink it straight away


I actually feel like making a cup of tea now...oops :lol:

I'm British so of course I love tea  :lol:  :lol:  :lol:

I love standard white tea, black tea, and iced tea. Otherwise I am not a fan of ~fancy~ teas such as green, herbal etc.
I like coffee too, but I recently trained myself to like it.
Currently looking for: Bright Eyes and Quackers.
Here's my wanted list!

Ohh yes I do love me some tea!

I like the more gentle black teas like English Breakfast. Ice teas are great too, especially for Summer :)
But my favourite overall would have to be Peppermint (green) tea! Delicious...
Also plain green tea and Jasmine tea :heart:

My culture is predominately British-Japanese, so tea time is just a normal thing. I really like vanilla chai or warm bubble tea in the evenings. In the mornings, vanilla black tea is my preferred choice, as I cannot have coffee for medical reasons. But I normally have wafers or cookies of a matching flavour to go along with the tea, so it may not be just the tea itself that I favour.

This sounds incredible! I'll be on the search for jasmine-orange blossom and green tea apple kiwi.  :heart: :heart: :heart:

I'm a coffee and tea girl! Love a nice, freshly ground dark roast in the morning with a teaspoon of honey. My top heavenly and easily obtainable coffees are Stumptown Hair Bender, Blue Bottle Ethiopian, or Whiskey Barrel Coffee Moonshine. The whiskey barrel coffee doesn't even need sugar, honey, or anything—it's smooth with some mellow caramel notes all on its own.

Anyone have a preferred prep regiment? I get whole beans whenever possible for a fresh grind to use with a French press at home, but sometimes I have patience for a pour-over. Although, when I see a coffee place that has a nice Hario vacuum siphon brewer I get tunnel vision and my heart beats 5x faster—true love! lol

For tea, I've been recently digging the Get Clean stackable teas; a different blend for the morning, afternoon, and night. My evening usuals are chamomile for relaxation or a nice lemon ginger for digestion. I'm also a big fan of matcha, both green and roasted.
