    Favourite Tea

    So what's your favourite tea (including brand name)?

    Right now I'm enjoying a cup of Stash's Double Bergamot Earl Grey. I doubt that anyone's other suggestions will be as tasty, but go ahead and try

    Did you put a pinch of baking soda in the pitcher?

    I don't drink much tea, preferring coffee. But I do like PG Tips.
    -------

    Some sort of pithy irrelevant one-liner should go here.

    I like a lot of teas. I've recently become quite taken by Numi Emperor's Puerh.

    It's nothing like Earl Grey, which I also like a lot. It's almost coffee-like.
    Dangit, I almost only post in Foo, so my post count is abysmal.

    I make my own tea. some I grow myself others I buy from local shops.
    my favorite right now is the House Chai mixture-I picked this up in a herb room on my last tour;
    -chai tea
    -Dried ginger root
    -cinnamon
    -cardamon
    -turmeric root
    -cloves
    -nutmeg
    and a hint of honey
    a great spicy blend for cold winter days

    Depends on the mood I'm in.

    I'm on a bit of a Tazo Awake kick of late. Probably pretty pedestrian in the tea world, but readily available here.

    My response would have been something along the lines of: "Does your bike have computer controlled suspension? Then shut your piehole, this baby is from the future!"

    Earl Grey, hot and sweet. ;0)
    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

    I don't have a favorite variety of tea, but I drink Twinings brand more often than not. Loose leaf, and no milk or sugar.

    I really like tea from the Granville Island Tea Company in Vancouver (Margaret's Hope and Second Flush Mim are lovely Darjeelings), and love a good matcha, oolong, pu'er... well, pretty much anything.

    But in the end I always end up coming back to Twinings Earl Grey. I grew up on the stuff, and it's still my favourite. Milk, no sugar.

    I've tried Chai Tea, including home made stuff, but I can't get past the overwhelming amount of spice used. My wife loves Chai and makes it at least every other day.
