But I love hot tea. Its far superior to coffee. Some of my favorites include Bigelow, Twinings and PG tips. Constant Comment, English Breakfast, Earl Grey....there is nothing better than a hot cup of tea. Morning, night, anywhere in between. Anyone else feel the same? What blends do you enjoy that I may be missing out on?

Does your pinky point up when you're holding the teacup?

Big green tea fan.... although i still like me a good cup a joe when I need a jolt o' caffeine.

Used to brew leaves straight up... you can order from adagio teas online. You can sample tons of different kinds.
Eventually I settled on a bags from Stash tea for convenience.

Nothing wrong with a cup of tea. At work, on a cold winter's day, a nice cup of Earl Grey tea with honey helped warm me after being in the cold air for hours. Iced tea has its merits also.

Back when I was in the mil and my wife and I were newlyweds, she brewed tea in the coffee maker. I once drank a whole pot of tea without realizing it wasn't coffee.

For "tea bag" products, try "Mighty Leaf" offerings if you can find them

Or see if there is a "Teavana" or similar store in your neck of the woods and try some Monkey Picked Ooolong or Zhen Pearls.

I enjoy hot tea as well. Ice tea (unsweetened) is also a favorite. I am also comfortable wearing a purple or pink shirt, too.

Call me a girly man, too. I drink about 4 cups a day of PG Tips. My wife (a Brit) can make a mean cup of tea. I like mine with milk and two sugars.

Salada tea is my favorite. I have 2-3 cups of hot tea a day. I never could get used to the objectionable taste of coffee.
Link Posted: 1/16/2011 10:08:41 AM EDT
Cromlech, thats awesome! Thanks for that.

I find PG tips to be solid all day long, where as english breakfast is better in the morning. Ginger Peach is well suited for the evening.

HARKEN TO ME, GENTLEMEN...HONEY IS FAR SUPERIOR TO SUGAR!!! Try it and thank me in the morning.

Who else has a favorite tea they would like to share?

I drank green tea in the morning for about 5 years. Suddenly, one day, I just could not stand the taste of any longer. I don't know what happened, but the taste just rubbed me the wrong way, almost like some bitter medicine or something.
Coffee never let me down.

Plenty of historical figures past and present drink the stuff.

As for myself, I rarely get around to making tea myself, but I'm happy with anything from Yorkshire Tea (name of the brand, standard stuff) to Earl Grey and even the green teas and other such things.

If anyone ever finds themselves in the city of Bath in the UK, and wants some tea, they should go here:

ETA: Oh, in case you are interested. Keurig coffee brewers are pretty popular. The "K-Cups" that go with it now come with Tea as well as hot cocoa. Would be an easy way to sample many teas and it is quick.
