    Just brewed a half pot of it... it tastes... grassy? like a somewhat aromatic grass. It gets bitter if you use boiling water but if you use hot water (~160F like they say you're supposed to use for green tea) it's not too bitter.

    Has anyone tried Monkey Picked Tea?

    How is it?

    I'm curious, but the thought of it creeps me out/endears me to its cause.

    I am currently in love with sencha green tea. It tastes delicious with 85% chocolate. I also want to get some matcha powder, since the stuff tastes great; creamy, earthy and smooth. The only tea i don't like is herbal tea- it tastes like apsartame and potpurri.

    Well, I like the black Chai tea as well, but my favorite is the "Prince of Wales" tea by Twinings (although that's harder to find these days).

    I usually don't tell people that I drink tea, though, ever since I got lambasted by one person who called me "Un-American" for drinking hot tea (rather than iced tea), saying I was basically spitting on the people who dumped the tea in Boston Harbor and fought for our independence.

    This only had the effect of making me more secretive and doubtful of the intelligence of the people around me, rather than making me feel guilty.

    In general, I doubt the intelligence of those around me as well. However, humanity in general isn't all that bright, at least to me. Individuals on the other hand... *shrugs* Back to the point.

    Don't allow one individual to hold sway over things such as that. It was a ridiculous attack on you. They have nothing more interesting to do with their lives than to harass others who have the slightest difference from them. That just shows how pathetic and close-minded they are.

    Those that boycotted the tea did so more than 200 years ago. And I don't doubt that at least one person among them actually liked the tea. They were just making a statement. A statement which no longer stands in this day and age. So, drink up!

    *Notes that your current avatar is the Tarot 8 of swords, however, which seems to fit with this line of reasoning It seems a pity to let the surreal opinions of one certifiable nutcase hinder your communication like this, but if you're going to form a generalised expectation thus from a single weird experience...*


    As for myself, I prefer some kind of Ceylon tea for everyday drinking, and occasionally lapsang souchong, darjeeling or chai for variation as black tea goes. Green tea is too bitter for the most part, but good white tea... mmm! I feel sure it must be doing me some deep and profound good somewhere with that delicate, rich, incredibly subtle flavour.

    Fruit and herbal teas mostly smell enticing but fail to live up to their olfactory promise in quite a spectacular way, so I will happily give them a miss. Spiced teas of any kind can be another matter entirely, however. They actually have a flavour

    ha By the way, I love both hot and iced tea. My favorite iced tea is raspberry. My favorite hot tea is India Chai Spice.
