    I like tea and I like this thread.

    I like Arctic Fire tea - couldn't remember what was in it, so it's apparently a china black tea with a hint of mint and blue cornflowers. It's really pretty to look at as well!

    Other highly enjoyable teas:
    - apple tea
    - Oolong tea such as pu erh and tieh kuan yin ("Iron Buddha")
    - Japanese green tea
    - green teas in general

    Oh, and Earl Grey tea is lovely!

    And I'm at that stage where the word 'tea' is looking really strange to my eyes..

    I like loose leaf english breakfast tea for morning & afternoons. Heavy cream, no sugar.

    I love cha yen, too.

    I'm a fan of Earl Grey. I drink it with a lot of cream and sugar.

    I've had other things here and there that I like. There was this peach ginger green tea that was really good.

    I find that it varies with me. But I usually like to stick with one blend for a certain time (at least half a year) and then change to a new one.

    At the moment, I prefer Earl Grey to any other tea. Especially since I found out that it helps my metabolism and also helps when I'm in a bad mood. Earl Grey is my crack!

    Last year, I went for vanilla flavoured green tea. And the year before it was some fruit tea blend. Let's see what's next.

    I go through phases. My current addiction is Lady Grey (a milder version of Earl Grey). I also really like white tea, green tea, English Breakfast, Prince of Wales, Dilmah black, black tea flavoured with vanilla and a chamomile blend. I also like Fujian tea (can't remember it's actual name) because it reminds me of meditation classes when I was at college.

    I drink all tea with milk, no sugar. The only exceptions are peppermint tea (I've tried it with milk and it really doesn't work) and lemon/ginger and fruit teas (the milk curdles and yes I have tried it).

    I like some green tea blends

    I mostly drink black tea though. For grocery store brands, favorites are Tazo 'Awake', and a brand called Taylors of /(and?) Harrowgate. Assam is usually what I get, although I enjoy Darjeeling as well. They also had a 'Scottish Breakfast Tea' that I loved, although it's not stocked at the grocery store anymore.

    Earl Grey is nice on occasion.

    There are also a couple of small tea companies (one called 'Teavana', another called 'Teasource') that I've gotten loose tea from.

    Teavana isn't a small company.

    Yerba Mate has a strange flavor, but I don't think it's bitter. Tazo makes some pretty good teas -- I like their Chai. Darjeeling is good stuff. I might buy some next time I buy tea.

    If I had a chance to drink the kind of tea Hmm makes, I'd consider drinking it more. Hmm, your like a tea chef.

    This thread inspired me to buy English Breakfast and some of that Yogi Kombucha Green tea I mentioned earlier, in addition to the Darjeeling I bought earlier today. Now, once again, I have way more tea than I could possibly drink. Thanks a lot...

    Does anyone have some self-control they could spare?
