    I'd really like to see the Japanese Tea Ritual in the native environment. I dont really think there is a coffee equivalent.

    Default Tea

    I drink tea, every now and then.

    I drink Earl Grey with milk 'you're not meant to do that.'

    I like tea, milk, sugar.
    Or tea and sugar.
    Or just tea.

    I'm fussy with my ocha 'green tea', ever since I had it powered at a tea ceremony thrown for my Japanese class in college at the Japanese embassy; Ever since then it's been like this:

    Seymour Skinner
    The year was 1968. We were on recon in
    a steaming Mekong delta. An overheated private removed his
    flak jacket, revealing a T-shirt with an iron-on sporting the
    Mad slogan
    "Up With Mini-Skirts."
    Well, we all had a good laugh, even though I didn't quite
    understand it. But our momentary lapse of concentration
    allowed Charlie to get the drop on us.
    I spent the next three years in a POW camp, forced to subsist
    on a thin stew of fish, vegetables, prawns, coconut milk, and
    four kinds of rice. I came close to madness trying to find it
    here in the States, but they just can't get the spices right.

    ... I can't find powered ocha anywhere.

    This Tea's the Shizznizz


    And I have never actually paid attention to the box before; I will now.




    I don't usually drink PG Tips, but I loved these old adverts.

    This is amazing. It somehow tastes sweet without any added sugar. Spicy and sweet and fragrant. It's like an herbal chai!

    I'm quite fond of rosehip spiced with star anise, cinnamon and clove and topped off with a touch of honey.

    Sounds delicious. Is there tea with it or just what you mentioned?

    I use any old brand of Rosehip tea and throw the whole spices myself into a pot on the stove. I heat it a little longer than just a regular bag in a teapot. 1 stick of cinnamon, a teaspoon of cloves, 2 star anise flowers and two teabags for a pot. Pour into a cup when ready and add honey.

    This isn't actually tea -- more like a tea-based product -- but I love it so much.



    It may say "just add water", but it's FAR better with milk.

    If I drank mint tea (purely herbal) everyday for several months, will that make my teeth start turning green?

    Too much tea causes rare bone disease

    100 tea bags a day for 17 years.
