ZOMG we don't have a general-purpose tea thread!

ITT we discuss our tastes in relation to this noble liquid! Personally I'm a tea bag person, but if someone wants to rant about tea bag = death, then feel free to.

Lipton Sun Tea is a spawn of Satan. Twinings - especially the Darjeeling kind - is lovely. I put in both sugar and honey and mix it with 1:1 with milk..I guess I have childish taste. ; )

I have a Southern friend who loves "sweet tea". Now, I'm a Chinese-American guy so I try not to say anything, but...

I acctually really like Red Rose brand tea. I know a lot of people say that stuff "isn't really tea", but I love it. It's the only tea I can drink black.

Well, I like the tea Indonesians usually use with sugar. :P Green tea for me usually though, and bubble tea. XD

Actually, you CAN get Finnish liquid honey, but that's really rare. The year 2006 six was an exceptional one and almost pure fireweed honey and honeydew (really rare in Finland!) honey were gathered, both liquid honeys.

But you're somewhat right there - usual Finnish honeys are non-liquid.

"The drama claimed that Benoist is the only tea company to hold a set of three Royal Warrants, specifically by Her Marjesty the Queen, HRH The Prince of Wales, and HM the Queen Mother. However there is no evidence to support this claim, and a search of the Royal Warrant Holders Association website reveals this to actually be true of R. Twining & Co."

>>109 that has no bearing on whether or not its a good tea, just shady marketing.2

Tea that's green tea leaves mixed with rosted rice and ma[t/c]cha powder is surprisingly good.
Oh those whacky Japanese, what won't they make. I might want to buy more of this stuff.

Anyone else rich enough for white tea? Also, I need to buy tea that's I guess okay for pricing, yet the balance of the strength in the tea that is subtle yet revitalizing... Any suggestions?

118 Name: Anonymous Chef : 2008-11-05 00:06 ID:+5BV+Rrj

I tried white tea once and for some reason I got really tired and woke up on my couch.

Earl Gray's okay.

119 Name: Anonymous Chef : 2008-11-14 19:20 ID:fAhXN5oM


I heard white tea is actually bad for you.

120 Name: 117 : 2008-11-15 15:44 ID:VU73l/+j

Seriously? How come? What I read was that is has mood relaxing properties. Explains 118's drowsiness.

121 Name: AnonymousMan7 : 2008-11-16 08:22 ID:pGLZaHpw

Nice, cold, green tea!!! Yes!!!!!!!!!!!

122 Name: Anonymous Chef : 2008-12-14 23:56 ID:E//wPpyq

For cold teas, I recommend Barley tea or Corn tea. (though technically they're a tisane...)
I like camomile tea too... (also technically a tisane)

I love Twinning's Chai and Vanilla. Down to my last teabag - ACK. Hot, steaming masala chai with milk and sugar. ^~^

You know, when you say something like that, you should have some sort of a basis. Isn't white tea supposed to have the most anti-oxidants?

I drink jasmine green tea with leaves.

Tea-bags are good eye masks apparently.

Earl Grey. All day, all night. Fun times.

127 Name: Anonymous Chef : 2009-10-13 02:32 ID:MVMVMirS

What the hell is a tisane?
