    Whats your favorite tea? I just started getting into teas recently because I'm on a diet and I'm cutting out soda and juices. So far I like my sleepytime Vanilla tea... It sorta tastes like minty vanilla. I also have green teas, Orange spice teas... I really want to try some cinnamons and such... Any recommendations?
    Any good teas thatll make me relaxed and calm and stuff? Thanks!

    Tea, earl grey. Hot.

    Aside from earl grey, I love Celestial Seasons' Tension Tamer (perfect if you want something to relax and calm you).

    If you like cinnamons, try double spiced Chai.

    All good things indeed.

    95% of the time I drink various black teas, sometimes with various spices.

    Right now I'm actually rocking some green tea with jasmine for something different.

    Always cheap crap and always with nothing else in it.

    i love red tea. currently my favorite is red tea with vanilla.
    its followed by any form of black tea.

    i also enjoy a mix of herbal teas that have a bit of everything in em too.

    recently i had the weirdest tea that i loved. it was called 'mixed fruit tea'. what it was was just random juices that were cooked a bit to let the juices out, and they served that. sweet yes! does it have any actual tea in it? i doubt it. good thing it had tons of fruits in it, and it didn't have sugar in it. it was interesting to say the least....

    I'm not a big fan of tea(I have drunk a lot of flavours of Dilmah tea and a lot of others - meh), but my girlfriend bought apple-cinnamon one by Teekanne and it is delicious.

    Egyptian Licorice.

    Lemon Ginger.

    Ginger. I've even heard of folks just cutting up fresh/raw ginger and pouring boiling water over it.

    Make it so...

    ASSDJKSNJN TEA THREAD! I'm a Green Tea guy 'till death. However, right now I'm really enjoying this Tetley Dark Chocolate Chai Tea. I don't like sugar, milk, or cream but the slight sweetness is really nice.

    I am quite the tea connoisseur. Following in the footsteps of my father, Josh Pelican. My current stock is rather low, but consists of:
    -Black Dragon Pearls
    -Golden Monkey
    -Blueberry Bliss/Strawberry Lemonade blend
    -Blueberry Acai White tea
    -Plain old, boring ass Lipton black :lol:

    Black Tea here in 99,9% of the times. Ceylon and Assam mostly, Earl Grey also. Alternative to Earl Grey, I also enjoy my bit of "Bergamino" - an Earl Grey variant with a bit of lemonskin (for the bag-tea drinkers - I think they sell this as "Lady Grey").

    Luckily, we have some big Tea-houses in Vienna, where you can get many different sorts, including real "high end" teas.

    As it's winter, I am currently stocking (as my demand is different than in summer) some "winter"-sorts, my favourite beeing "Highland Toffee" - Strong Ceylon with splinters of buttertoffe and praline. Add just a bit of honey to it, and this is as perfect as it can get.

    Kinda neat that I stumbled across this thread right as I just finished a big mug of green tea with honey. With it being as cold as it has been lately, nothing warms one's bones quite like a steaming cup of delicious, healthy green tea. :)
