(I'll use one tea bag of whatever flavor i like and put the tea bag in the water then put it in the microwave for about 45 seconds.....then I stir the water until it's a nice shade and take a spoon and press it between the tea bag and the cup (to get the flavor out) After I do that, I add sugar and honey to mine It's sooooooooo good! Sometimes I'll add lemon or an orange slice, sometimes a cinnamon stick or a peppermint stick, sometimes caramel syrup! Just depends / As far as Iced Tea goes- I ALWAYS use Luzianne Tea. Colin and I use two family size tea bags and put them in the tea maker....we then add the first batch of water and 2 cups of sugar. Once all the water is run through- we add more and run it through again to get all of the tea out- it's better that way...then we add ice and stir ( sometimes we make vietnamese iced tea- (20 allspice drops -in a little tea ball container- we just drop it in, and lots of cinnamon, 2 cups of sugar). You name it we make it! Also -the trick to Green tea is- add a little lemon, sugar, and honey to it- it won't taste like grass that way

I live in the South too, and I also drink tea all the time. Not hot though, I gotta have my coffee or no one will wanna be my friend that day. I do drink a lot of iced tea, I very seldom drink soft drinks of any kind.

I prefer coffee but I do occasionally have either Earl Grey or English Breakfast. The English Breakfast doesn't have any extra flavoring added but it is one of my favorite hot teas. For plain iced tea I use Luzianne. I really like Tazo Passion tea mixed half and half with lemonade in the summer for an iced drink.

I love tea!!!

I drink green tea, white tea and yerba mate.

I do like oolong, jasmine, chinese black tea, and earl grey. I am quite fussy on tea flavours and so I don't really go for the fruity tasting stuff.

I too love teas! However, I do drink them cold. In fact, I have to brew a gallon pitcher every day for my family. We also don't drink soft drinks, which I'm so glad of because the kids were so addicted to that stuff and its just soooo bad for them/us...now they are addicted to teas! Anyway, I love Lipton's Mixed Berries Green Tea..yep, that's one tea! hehe. Sometimes, depending on what's in the pantry, I'll mix different types or flavours...one of our favs is Peach with the Mixed Berries...yum! Naomi love the CranberryPomegranet with Mixed Berries...so many varieties to choose from. The hubby has to...and I mean HAS TO...have a hot cup of Celestial Seasonings Sleepy Time tea every single night before bedtime. It just relaxes him and makes him feel good...drifts off to sleep in no time. The chammomile in the Sleepy Time also makes it a good choice for when your tummy isn't feeling very well...either that or just the Celestial Seasonings Quietly Chammomile...really helps to settle your tummy.

I like teas. I like Green tea with lemon, black tea, and black tea with orange. Also like the raspberry teas. I just like the warmness and I actually like the flavor. Even of black tea

I never was much of a coffee drinker and prefered tea over that. However, I drink a lot more tea and I prefer the loose leaf tea to the tea bags. Can make a bigger volume and it's fresher. I have the tea drinking from my mom's side (she's german) where both coffee and tea are very popular in Europe.
We have started drinking various loose leaf teas such as Rooibos, green tea, and herbal tea. Chamomile is very soothing, but it is also one of the few natural things that can help you stop throwing up. The rooibos and honey bush teas are widely known to help with anti-oxidants, inflammation, digestion, etc. The green and white (white esp) are well known for getting rid of free radicals and contain high levels of anti-oxidants. And a lot of them have a mild, calming, but flavorful taste. Tea shops can be expensive so once we have found a flavor we like, I research online to find cheaper prices.
T-SAC is a box of disposable tea bags imported from germany that no matter how fine the tea is, it will NOT fall through where with metal tea balls, it will. I love them! They have various size bags, so whether you make 1-2 cups, or a whole tea pot like we do each night, there are various sizes to choose from.
Some of my favorite teas are Georgia peach rooibos, green rooibos key largo, honeybush, and Sencha Kyoto Cherry Rose Festival Green Tea. All of these are loose leaf teas.

Here are just a few sites I've found to be pretty reasonable and reliable.

Tea can be very good for you and I've started drinking it almost every night. I even look forward to guessing which one was made! I use brown granulated sugar or honey. I wish I could do without anything, but I have to have it taste after something!
