    For me, it's a tossup between Earl Grey Tea and Jasmine Green Tea. I don't sweeten either one. For special occasions, I have a cherry blossom tea that I imported from Japan. It's lovely, but expensive, so I rarely drink it.
    Here are the ingredients. I don't see tea listed but it's so good. *puts on some water to heat*

    • Ingredients:
    • Organic Licorice Root, Organic Cocoa Shells, Organic Orange Peel, Organic Ginger Root, Organic Fennel Seed, Organic Anise Seed, Organic Cinnamon Bark, Natural Tangerine Flavor, Natural Orange Flavor, Cardamom Seed, Organic Clove Bud, Organic Cayenne Fruit, Organic Black Pepper. Each tea bag contains 0 mg of caffeine.
    Another beautiful day in the state of denial.

      Earl Grey. Now that cold weather is here, when I'm at home I always have a mug full within reach. I probably swill 5 to 7 double sized mugs every day. My family claims surprise that I sleep at all.
      Living well is the best revenge.:mmm:

          I make my own chai, and I get some fancy things from Whittards of Chelsea when I'm in Britain. And I recently discovered Blueberry Jam from David's Tea, and my sister always buys me a bag if Glitter and Gold <3

            I've been trying to find a real green tea that isn't stupidly expensive or doesn't taste like sewage. I even found a supplier who went direct to the growers. Then one day while shopping Nuts.com I noticed they sold teas and coffees. They said the right things so I took the risk. I have no idea where they get their green teas but it's so good. Bright with character and depth. I love the pearl teas, which this isn't, but that might help you understand. A good green tea is not a coffee substitute.

            On a side note… in the early 80s my friends and I drank Morning Thunder by Celestial Seasonings. I just saw it today which brought back memories. If you're tea adventurous, you have to try it! Very dark, complex, and… weird.

              You might want to look at Upton. They've got a lovely selection of Green Teas and are good about discussing provenance and flavor notes. They do get expensive, but I've managed to get their 1st grade Tie Guan Yin Oolong for a good price.

                I love love licorice spice tea, and peppermint as well. Not sure what I do not like, but I know what I do like.

                    I'm in love with this tea shop- David's Tea and their winter teas. Cardamom French Toast, Gingerbread Cookie and Snow Day are just awesome.

                      • I am blending my own these days. I really like a chai with fresh spices, mixed with a tiny bit of palm sugar, half and half and a base of pg tips. Anything floral is always good as well

                        • I love the chai tea from Tea India (comes in granules) and genmaicha, which I get at local Asian food stores.
