I can appreciate it.

    I bought myself this for Christmas but I haven't used it yet. I just want to brew my tea on the go! You just dump the hot water and the loose tea leaves (or bag) in there and go. No need to wait around for it to brew. When you drink it, the tea leaves stay behind the strainer in the glass, and you get to see the tea brewing through the glass container.

    Oh my god, that is beautiful!!!

    I love tea! Right now, my latest flavor of choice is Earl Grey. There is something about bergamot that I am really into. I generally like green teas, black teas (of course) and roobios! But I have to find some! They have all disappeared!

    [add]: and peppermint tea and spearmint tea and I even had a really good berry tea one.
    Excuse me, but does this smell like chloroform to you?

    You know, I think I'd kill several people if it meant I'd get a Chai Latte right about now =/

    Someone get this woman a Latte FAST and make it a decaf!


    Stash Decaf Creme Caramel Tea

    ingredients:
    naturally decaffeinated black tea, natural chocolate flavor, natural flavor of dulce de leche caramel


    Inspired by Dulce de Leche caramel dessert. For a rich and creamy dessert drink add a splash of milk and sugar.




    Thai iced tea is great too if you're not lactose intolerant.

    I believe in drinking beverages that are the size of my head.

    check for flavors you like(only leaves), and then use the 'heavier' or full body one as a 'base' and the flavorful one as the 'blend'.

    Awesome idea for a thread! I will read through this at more leisure - I just came across it.

    I live in England - of course the finest place in the world to buy tea! - and in case they have not yet been mentioned, there is a chain called Whittards of Chelsea which sells the loveliest tea and tea-related products (also coffee and hot chocolate, actually). They have some gorgeous flavoured black teas, such as Mango, English Rose, Vanilla, etc, as well as all the usual English Breakfast, Earl Grey, Darjeeling etc. I bought a nice spicy Christmas blend on sale after Christmas too. Also some nice herbal teas though that is much less my thing.

    I already know that if/when I move back to my native land of Canada, I will be asking friends who come over from the UK to bring me Whittards! Failing that, I will be buying lots of Twinings (which you can get in Canada) or going to speciality shops. Like cheese, it's worth spending a bit extra for nice tea.

    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!
    Are you serious? That's genuinely hilarious and somewhat disturbing. I do remember being in a restaurant in California, my mom asked for tea and the kid serving us was seriously confused that she wanted hot tea, not iced tea.

    I recently went to a restaurant, ordered a pot of tea, and got some of the most delicious whole-leaf high-quality Oolong I've ever tasted. I've got to find some more of that.

    Oh, and for Christmas my lovely girlfriend got me some high-quality teas, including a good sencha-based genmai cha that is way better than the stuff I had before.

    I love this stuff. We kind of live in the middle of nowhere so we haven't had much of a chance to try more exotic teas.
    “There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”
