    I haven't met a tea that I don't like; black, white, green, red, herbal, I like them all. I have sooooo many different kinds. I love to try new ones, and I even buy books on tea. Not sure why I have this obsession but I do.

    I was inspired to write this thread because I am sitting here drinking black chai tea and I haven't had that in so long, I forgot how delightfully spicy it is.

    PS - For all you Brits, yes, I put the milk in first, then water.

    Ooh tea I think black chai is great too, but too much can be a bit sickly, it's nice once in a while. I love vanilla tea, mmm. I'm more of a black tea fan than a green tea lover, and I like milk in it (which I put in at the end, so I can see what colour it will turn).

    I love tea so much, in fact, that for my current history dissertation I'm researching the Chinese tea trade with the Dutch East India Company, lol.

    Aww man. Why'd this thread have to be bumped today

    I bought a teeny-tiny 2 glass tea pot for work yesterday but forgot to bring in some tea leaves, I'd consider cutting people up for some right now!

    *considers cutting up tea bags instead*

    Tea.

    I do love it.

    • Chai - it tastes best when ye just make it from scratch with cardamon and everything.
    • Orange spice tea (herbal)
    • Really good Jasmine tea... (Thai/Vietnamese restaurants serve the version I like.)
    • 500 Mile Chai (Very, very nice.)
    • Ginger peach tea that has a mild black tea base...
    • Chamomile, sometimes...
    • For some reason I still dislike green tea. It might've been due to the memories of real green tea in Japan: I had it during a tea ceremony and I think my hair stood on end for three hours.
    • Tazo's 'Passion'

    There's probably more. Love 'ze tea.

    Need sleep.

    On Friday, I had Tazo's 'passion' for the first time. It was soooooooo incredibly delicious! I was in tea haven!
    I'm a little teapot, short and stout. Here is my handle and here is my spout. Every time I steam up, I give a shout. Just tip me over and pour me out.

    All of which are fantastic choices

    If you're looking for something rather... hearty, try Assam black tea and brew it strong (double the bags, don't brew it longer). Nice malty flavor & aroma Add milk & honey and it tastes like a warm malt milkshake!

    What a delightful thread!

    I love all kinds of teas, but lemon and other fruity herbals are nice. I like spiced teas and also just black tea with milk and sugar.

    Mmm... I'm going to go make some right now...
