    So tea drinkers, whats your favorite tea? Right now I would have to say Bigelows's Mint Medley is my favorite.

    Samurai Chai it's available at Teavana. They have other blends, and will custom blend dry teas at your request. A word of warning though, once you get your pallet used to the high quality of these teas, going back to Lipton, Tetley, and such is difficult.

    I also like Earl Grey, I like Twining's version of it best.

    +1 Teavana is amazing(albeit a bit pricey), my favorite is the Orange Blossom one, and some of the oolong stuff. Also, passionfruit tea is really good as well.

    Hahaha my old roommate used to work at one of those and would always bring home a s**tload of tea. Youthberry Wild Orange Blossom and Lavender Dreams were always my favorites. Also really enjoy celestial seasonings Mint Magic tea(the one with the wizard on the box).

    Japanese organic sencha from David's Tea is my go to atm. Not the best but still pretty good.

    There was this website to order tea directly from japan that a friend recommended if I ever find where I put the link.

    Yes! Youthberry Wild Orange Blossom, that's the one. It's really good hot or cold, though I prefer cold.

  10. I bought some Lavender Earl Grey from a little tea shop. It's not the greatest quality, but it's quite delicious. I'd like to recreate it on my own with better lavender blossoms.

    Anything black and strong, really.

    Iced Lipton black or Salada black. I brew a cup or pitcher as needed. No sweeteners, lemon, or flavors.

  13. We get quite a variety of teas over here and, when it comes to pre-flavored ones, I've had some nice pomegranate, peach and lychee teas. Yet, I have to say that my favorites are the ones my mom brews. These are made with plain jane dried tea leaves, a generous dose of milk, a little sugar and, most importantly, a variety of authentic Indian spices - my favorites being ginger, cinnamon, cardamom, clove, mint, sweet basil and random combinations of these :)

    That sounds delicious!
     
  17. THANK YOU

    I keep telling my boyfriend that his tea smells like bacon but he doesn't believe me. (To be fair, he has never actually eaten bacon but I'm sure he has smelled it in his lifetime)

    Two Earl Grey teabags, one Assam teabag in a warmed pot if I have the time to make proper brew.

    Tetley, PG Tips or Yorkshire teabag thrown in a mug whilst on the hoof at work.

    Splash of milk, no sugar....commonly known as a 'dockers brew'.
