    Yeah she was a little nuts. Too bad for her though.

    The most I'd ever drink is 3 cups using 3 bags in a day. Heck, I might even reuse 1 bag.

    Same here. I saw the headline for this article and clicked on it thinking it might be relevant to me. I guess not.

    Yes it is, actually! I drew a beard and an ax on my mug once and chased off a mild episode of the flu once.

    I love selfmade tea! My grandmum is best in making tea.

    I drank oolong tea yesterday evening.

    I mentioned this tea in the 2nd post in the thread, but I've since started reacquainting myself with it and I'm still amazed at the "medicinal" qualities it bears-

    I just can't quite get past the flavor, though I may try a different variety soon (and/or use smaller doses). I am currently experimenting with taking it in "pill" form where I take capsules of the crushed leaves, and I definitely feel the calming & de-stressing effect (not to mention sleep better). My blood pressure is also lower as I've tested.

    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.
    I love Green tea and Chrysanthemum tea.

    I drink Japanese sen-cha Green tea with the help of one of these:

    [Trump's] rhetoric is not an abuse of power. In the same way that it's also not against the law to do a backflip off of the roof of your house onto your concrete driveway. It's just mind-numbingly stupid and, to say the least, counterproductive. - Bush did 9-11


    This is not going to go the way you think....

    The best tea I have had lately is Polish tea from Herbaty Honoraty Blikle called Anastasia. Lovely.
