    Mmm

    Tea is so good. Whether it's unsweetened or not, amazing. I like Teas teas the best that is unsweetened. Sweet Leaf's diet original is awesome that uses splenda, and so is Arizona's diet green though it has asulfame k. I hate the idea of fake sweetners like aspartame and asulfame k, why can't they just leave it out. I love coffee (well half coffee, half vanilla soy milk ) too, but I only wish tea maybe had a little more caffeine.

    It's all about the looseleafs (looseleaves?). Also, it's about so much more than flavour. I've had days completely transformed by tea -- from cranky and miserable to calm and happy. Usually I go for hot teas (and usually black), but I love a good iced tea in the summer. One thing that drives me crazy about China: it's really hard to find decent bottled iced tea here! The vast majority of bottled iced teas (usually green) are disgustingly sweet.

    My vote for best summer drink ever: Ice-cold, strong Oolong tea. They do this in Japan (also sold here, but it's sometimes hard to find it unsweetened), and it is amazing.

    Did you know that ALL tea (white, black, red, green, etc) comes from the same plant?

    Having said that, I've become partial to pomagranate pizazz. Hmmm, that would be good right now...

    I'm a bit partial to a hot tea of citrus/ginger mix. the tea brand that I tends to use is "Celestal Seasoning". Wish I could try growing some variety of mint herbs at home to experiment with home-made teas.

    Yes, a tall cup of earl grey in the afternoon (with the real oil of bergamot, not artificial flavors) is just the thing.
    If you need more of a jolt, try Morning Thunder made by Celestial Seasonings. Has a bit of a woodsy taste but it revs the engines.
