    My favorite teas:

    Leaf-brewed Darjeeling, occasionally with a drop of lemon. If you're ever in West Bengal, try to get some Darjeeling tea straight from the gardens... they're unmixed and make you rethink your conception of what tea is.... Assam teas are also nice.

    Earl Grey blends (various Indian black teas) are alright... get boring after a while...

    Dhaabaa (roadside food-stands or mini-restaurants) chai... the kind you get on the streets in India, where they have a huge vat of boiling milk with tea-leaf dross caking the bottom and sides, re-boiling and re-boiling, throwing in a couple of teaspoons of sugar occasionally... it comes out like a dream.... no 'chai tea' in the world can match a road-side Indian chai. Add ginger and a little masala if desired.

    [Just wanted to point out something: "chai tea" is redundant... that's saying 'tea tea'.]

    Leaf-brewed green tea.

    A great tea-bag variety is Wagh-Bakri (Tiger & Goat)... masala chai... for when I don't feel like brewing...

    Lipton is balls.

    Some of the herbal teas are nice once in a while... but the flavorings can be grating.

    hahaha true! However, coffee is still the favorite in America. I don't drink coffee at all though. You can have mine.

    Ahh, thanks for the correction. Good to know. Also, I don't mind Lipton for some reason, although it's not my first, second or third choice. But then again I mostly only have it when I go to Denny's, McDonald's or IHOP.

    For making large quantities of iced tea, I prefer Luzianne over Lipton. Sometimes it's also nice to make a big batch of some finer tea. You can't beat 3 quarts of iced chai, with a little bit of honey or sugar.

    Turkish-style. Black, lots of sugar in a little glass, on a little saucer with endless stirring. Topped up regularly with tea and just the right amount of hot water.

    I like both, though I prefer coffee first thing in the morning. I'm useless without my minimum of 2 cups of coffee. But I find tea as a nice mid afternoon drink.
