Who drinks tea??? - Page 3

post #61 of 89
I love tea! I'm a huge fan of organic green teas as well as the organic teas by Stash!

I have to steer clear of anything highly caffeinated, like coffee or black tea though... gives me panic attacks

Oh oh oh!!!! Chai, I absolutely LOVE chai... only you have to have milk and sugar with it or you can get the mix in the box and that's really good too... I also adore green tea with jasmine! *licks lips*

I am addicted to tea - i must have 20 types of tea in my cupboards... I am still a PG Tips (imported from England not the crappy ones here) girl at heart - but I love Lady grey, English Breakfast and WakeUp Tea.

I simply cannot start the day without a nice strong Irish breakfast tea.

I carry tea bags in my purse and will just ask for water and use my own tea bag or ask for tea but the bag to be put on the side at restaurants (my bad) because I don't like the cheaper teas.

I have all the Tazo teas, some nice flavoured ones from a reservation up north and loads of other random ones. Guess what i got for Christmas at work... yep a Second Cup gift basket and gift card for all my teas LOL

2? I drink way more than that

I have one when I wake up, one on the way to work, one around 10am, one around 2pm, one on the way home and a night time one.

I got VERY addicted to tea over this past summer. Let's just say The Republic of Tea loves me.

In the cabinet right now I have Blackberry Sage, Chai, Jasmine White Tea, Vanilla Almond, Matte Latte, Winter Fruit Blend, Honey & Ginseng Green Tea from Republic of Tea. Tazo Green Tea, Twinings English Breakfast Tea and Celestial Seasons Sleepytime Tea. My friends in Australia sent me some loose herbal tea that is for sipping before bedtime, along with my first tea infuser. Now I'm hooked on loose tea as well as tea bags.

I've taken to drinking a lot of my teas with honey and cream, some of them with just cream. That Republic's Winter Fruit Blend is beautiful with just a little cream added!

Oh my...now I need some tea!

Glad to see so many tea drinkers among us! I drink so much tea my husband worries about me!
In the mornings I like loose leaf Yerba Mate I drink through a bombilla, and also green teas. In the afternoon it's decaff green and Kukicha. With dinner I like peppermint to aid digestion, and nighttime is camomile tea time!

I drink Crystal Light tea, but I've been wanting to try different teas... real tea. I see a lot of different types in magazines, but I don't know which ones are best, and all this tea stuff is like a foreign language to me.

I enjoy a cup of tea. I don't actually have it that often, though. Mostly it's a mid-afternoon thing. Earl Grey is, I think, my favourite. I do enjoy some of the herbal teas, too. Celestial Seasonings has a good selection of interesting ones -- Red Zinger and Lemon Zinger are pretty much the top of the list. Oh, and Sleepytime is wonderful late at night -- very calming.

I tend to drink a lot of sweet tea. I also drink peppermint tea, and ginger tea.

I drink chamomile tea every night myself.
I tried ginger tea once and proboaly won't ever try it again.
My dad drinks green tea every day but green tea for me isn't as soothing as chamomile. I use the tea baggies btw.

Anyone know of a brand of Tea that i can drink at night to help

I love tea, I drink PG tips de-caff. Strangely, it wakes me up in the morning even though it has no caffeine!
post #82 of 89

Try Celestial Seasonings "Sleepytime". It's lovely anytime actually, but especially before bed. I love it with a touch of lemon and honey.
post #84 of 89
I'll have to give it a try...Thank you

I've never drank tea before... but my Aunt & Grandpa got me hooked on Diet Lipton Green Tea with Mixed Berry. Its SO good, and good for you too. My Aunt used to get bladder infections at least a few times every month or two, and ever since she started drinking this daily, she hasn't had one in about 4 months!

Its really yummy!

I absolutely adore tea - hot tea! And it has to be Tetley! I usually drink plain old Tetley orange pekoe, but have been known to enjoy the occasional cup of Earl Grey or green tea. Drinking it at night is a problem for trying to sleep, so a nice cup of camomile is great in the evenings! Also, mint tea made with fresh mint - YUM!

I also like:
Chai (currently I have Masala Chai from a place here in Orlando called Teavana)
White Tea (though it's generally more expensive)
and fruit flavored teas! We have a mango tea at my place right now that is pretty good and a while back my roommate bought me some strawberry tea that was JUST delicious!!!

Tea bags or loose leaf are fine for me! Though I honestly think it tastes better when it's loose leaf. Just a difference in freshness perhaps? The chai I have right now is a loose leaf.

I'm a tea fiend.

Katherine you will need to come over and have tea with me sometime! We have Teavana here in Jax as well. I drink English Breakfast, at night though. I also have the Masala Chai and add a bit of soy milk to it. Yum!

I enjoy the taste of loose leaf tea more than the tea bags. It takes a little more time to make, but it's worth it

Hot, I like anything, herbal, black, green. Have not tried oolong, red, or white, but I want to as I'm pretty sure I will like them. I don't add anything.

For iced, though, I don't like plain tea, it has to be flavored. Bigalow Cinnamon Stick is really good iced with just a touch of Splenda.

I'm wondering if I can create flavored tea by using plain black or green tea and adding a bag or two of herbal tea. Do you think that would work? If so, I think it would be a really neat way to make your own custom flavors.
post #89 of 89
I'm sure you could "create" your own teas - go for it!

Gary and I drink a LOT of tea, though it's only green teas these days.

Other than specific types of herbal teas that are from mint or chamelia or whatever, almost all "tea" is from the same plant, Camellia Sinensis.

The only difference between white tea, the various types of green teas, and the various types of black teas, is processing and flavoring. Black tea is fully fermented green tea. Green tea is fermented slightly more than and processed a little bit differently than white tea.

White tea is the least fermented/processed of all the "tea" types of teas (meaning not compared to some herbal teas, but compared to anything that is from camellia sinensis).

The various types of teas within the black or green category have to do with the length and type of fermentation, and flavor additives that create Jasmine green tea or Earl Grey black tea, for example.

Tea comes originally from China, and if you want a quick read on the history from the chinese perspective, here's a link: http://www.tenren.com/teahistory.html

If you are interested in the different types of tea, a quick read on fermentation is here: http://www.tenren.com/fermentation.html

Green tea has been shown to have bazzillions of health benefits. A quick search at prevention magazine turns up this list: http://find.prevention.com/vignette/...archresult.jsp

It helps boost the levels of antioxidants in your blood, so it helps fight cancer, boost your immune system, etc. It has been shown to help you lose weight - it boosts your metabolism (and not because of caffeine). It helps fight allergies, colds, etc. ...and it helps you get down those GALLONS of water you should be drinking every day!

Now that we are working again, Gary and I purchase our tea from Ten Ren. We go to the store in NYC - but because of this thread, I found out they have a site from which you can purchase stuff. www.tenren.com. Gary and I purchase some of the higher grades of green tea, and always have King's Tea, Ti Kuan Yin, Jasmine and a good organic oolong on hand. We purchase whole loose leaf - not powder.

Happy drinking!

Laurie
