    Ever try adding a pinch of Earl Grey to green tea?

    Ooooh, excellent! I will try this, thanks Kaizer!

    best tea I've ever had was in russia... teavana comes pretty close. especially like chai and white teas. loose leaf is much better than the bags.

    Teabags have the residue of tea laves after the leaves have been processed etc and selected for loose leaf blends first.. the midway house of the large-ish grains form. Grades of tea : Peet's Coffee & Tea

    It's too fiddley to deal with all the wet loose tea leaves, though, after you've drank the tea. I can tolerate the residue, etc. better than having the extra steps of dealing with loose tea.

    I must say, after having yerba mate two days in a row at work, I can get used to that stuff. They even sell flavored loose mate online. I ordered a gourd + bombilla, waiting for that to arrive

    Haha, guessing Darjeeling falls under that caveat? Tasted like a full bouquet.

    I adore tea, I'm pretty sure any problem can be resolved with a good cuppa. I drink a lot of 'regular' British tea served with milk, maybe 5-6 cups a day. But I am really partial to green tea, plus I always think green tea has a kind of relaxing quality to it. Maybe it's the lesser amount of caffeine, but it just has a very calming effect on me. Green tea with lemon works well I think.

    Early Grey, Darjeeling, all good. The only thing I never liked so much, with some exceptions, are herbal teas. But then again, they are not actual teas technically speaking anyway, merely fruity and flowery imposters!

    Might go make another cup now actually.

    I'm not really a connoisseur but my body still remembers how it felt last time I drank camomile tea. And it was quite sometime ago

    What is yerba mate like? I have some bags of it, and am a little skeptical... it's doesn't smell floral or anything like that.

    Maybe that is a good thing?
