    Tea. What do you like?

    What's your favourite? Can be pure tea or flavoured.


    I just discovered Irish Cream Tea. Holy smokes...it is like drinking Baileys all day without getting drunk.

    cheers

    I am a simple man with simple tastes. I like Twinings, English Breakfast, Earl Grey and Irish Breakfast in that order. Taken with sugar and milk in the mornings. Honey and lemon or straight in the afternoon or evening. And you gotta warm up that cup first.

    Where's the fun in that?

    Green tea for me generally. Anything caffeinated in a pinch.

    That's basically me, but put earl grey first. I also go for Yerba Mate when I want the caffeine and antioxidants or green tea.

    Earl Grey, no cream or sugar. Chai honey and a little milk. Thai iced tea.

    Used to drink Tetley's when I lived in England.

    I'm a very, very simple tea drinker ... orange pekoe, Earl Grey and English breakfast tea in that order of preference. I take a little sugar and a little milk.

    My friend's tea shop sells a black tea with vanilla that reminds me pipe tobacco... it is the most amazing stuff.

    I love real chai... takes a while to make but it is so good.

    For every day tea nothing but PG Tips will do.

    I have some PG Tips at home right now!! My friend brought it for me at Christmas (she's living in England right now).

    I've been on a Lady Grey kick for quite a while.

    Kuding.

    But I will drink many types. I generally like bitter greens best. I do not care for sweet teas or spiced ones (except Earl Grey)

    Ti Guan Yin (one of the 8,000 different ways to spell it) and Lapsang Souchong are my two favorites.

    Earl Grey, with milk. Followed by Chai sometimes sweetened with honey or sugar. Then either Rooibos or normal tea with milk.

    And not only must you warm the cup first but you also must warm the pot first as well.

    A coffee shop where I used to live would sell this stuff:



    It was like $200 for an embossed brick, and the bricks were 100 years old or something (can't remember if shipwreck salvage was involved). You could also get a 2-serving pot for like $5 but I never did.

    You see, their morals, their code...it's a bad joke, dropped at the first sign of trouble. They're only as good as the world allows them to be. I'll show you. When the chips are down, these...These "civilized" people...they'll eat each other. See, I'm not a monster. I'm just ahead of the curve

    Again the same but Earl Gray goes to the top of the list.

    I like English Breakfast in the AM. Earl Gray in the PM and have been known to mix up a hot toddy.

    Decaf Earl Gray
    steep as usual
    stir with a cinnamon stick
    add honey and lemon to taste
    stir with cinnamon stick
    add a shot of whiskey
    enjoy.

    I'm still looking for one that doesn't remind me how much I miss coffee. If only it didn't aggravate my stomach so much.
