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'm not sure how it is in other areas, but here honeys are named after the type of flower the bees get nectar from. Orange blossoms and clover leaf are the most common. Personally, I've got a thing for berry and watermelon honeys (which are rarer, but have a nice fruity taste on the edge).

Saging for advertising; to answer any questions about "WHERE DO I BOUGHT TEA LOLZ" I can't go without recommending Upton Tea Company. www.uptontea.com

They've got some really great selections of black, green, white, rooibos, herbal, decaf, etc. of everything from basic, good stuff to rare and imperial-grade teas. Blends, straight types, you name it. Plus they pack and ship really quick; USPS Priority Mail is always a bargain. They pack and seal the bags with the date and time it was done and your name, and it's only $2 more per order (usually) for a handsome reusable tin. It's really one of the best, if not the best, online tea companies out there.

Lately I've taken to drinking barley tea. It's really nice, and different from black and green teas.

82 Name: Anonymous Chef : 2006-07-09 22:00 ID:+GNf2zWU

Quite! I miss that. =(

Though lately I've been drinking a lot of thyme tea with honey in it, by some odd reason. Quite nice.

84 Name: Anonymous Chef : 2006-07-23 03:21 ID:+Fxe1ukz

( ゚ ヮ゚) Try tea with lemon too!

85 Name: Haruhi : 2006-07-23 05:26 ID:aXDsgr1g

Actually, there's a really wierd recipe for some really tasty tea my friend made up...

A quick splash of French Vanilla creamer, orange juice, and a tablespoon of honey in Earl Grey tea is really yummy.<3 Not for people who dislike sweet things, though.

Personally, I like black tea with honey and lemon. Also, green tea I drink in bulk, like coffee.x.x

I visited my mum yesterday. She was drinking ginger tea. Just chop up a whole ginger into small bits then boil it in a pot of water. It really warmed me up and did wonders for my throat.

87 Name: Haruhi : 2006-07-26 05:44 ID:1oNYCla9


My mom does that when I'm sick, too. She adds honey, lemon, and ginger to tea. It's really yummy.^_^

So not my thing. I can handle small amounts of ginger when it's in gingersnap cookies or in a tea blend (ie Tazo's Green/Ginger), but when it's that much at once....no.

As for sore throats, Throat Koat and Stash Licorice Spice are your friends, though they do have the supersweet aftertaste of doom to go with them.

I like to chop up apple mint and put it in a tea ball for my tea ^_^

I actually know very little about tea, but I love the few kinds I have tried.

91 Name: Anonymous Chef : 2006-08-22 06:57 ID:+Fxe1ukz

Tea ball? Gah, wierd thoughts are coming out of my head!

Only barbarians pollute tea with milk.

Luckily, most of these barbarians live in Taiwan and have copious supplies of little round tapioca balls and freakishly oversized straws too.

I like bubble tea ):

I like beverages with a hint of tea in them, rather than tea with a hint of a different beverage

97 Name: Anonymous Chef : 2006-10-13 11:53 ID:+GNf2zWU

Russian Earl Grey tea with akacia honey is really good...

98 Name: Moine : 2006-11-17 19:46 ID:lFsr2KC7

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


103 Name: Anonymous Chef : 2006-12-11 17:15 ID:jgKRczoO

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.

104 Name: Iori : 2006-12-12 15:17 ID:BdoR2kVz

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

105 Name: P : 2007-02-03 22:50 ID:my/NTpyv

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.

106 Name: Anonymous Chef : 2007-02-04 08:27 ID:J0ycsusW

>>104 Indonesians drink all theor tea with sugar whether it's earl grey, black tea, chamomile but the most common tea they drink is jasmine

107 Name: Anonymous Chef : 2007-02-07 09:06 ID:Heaven

Oooh, jasmine tea.. I should make some now. Thanks for reminding me, >>106 !

108 Name: Anonymous Chef : 2007-02-09 14:41 ID:7Lzh0Blo

I really mean it. Its very good. You should try some of it when you're here in Japan.

"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."

110 Name: Anonymous Chef : 2007-05-04 10:16 ID:lYyBE3b2

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

111 Name: Anonymous Chef : 2007-05-13 11:19 ID:n4pSltpM

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)

123 Name: tea freak!!A/BiR1/H : 2009-08-23 05:21 ID:QqEwfk7h

twohillstea.com has some awesome tea, i like their eybrow green tea

124 Name: chainomnom : 2009-08-25 07:49 ID:AcWksuCI

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

125 Name: Anonymous Chef : 2009-10-05 14:26 ID:YtMg0c8F

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.
