RE: Tea
My favorite flavor/brand is Zhena's Egyptian mint green tea, but I drink all kinds. I'm one of the weirdos who actually prefers green to black. My absolute favorite is peppermint especially if it's made from fresh leaves. ^_^

RE: Tea
It is funny how Brits are stereotyped over the huge amounts of tea we drink, yet the only expertise I can add to this subject is my method.

1: Place teabag in mug.
2: Pour milk into mug on top of teabag.
3: Add two sugars.
4: Add boiling water
5:Stir, remove teabag.

Viola.

For no matter how much I use these symbols, to describe symptoms of my existence.
You are your own emphasis.
So I say nothing.

RE: Tea
bemore, you do it differently to me.

1. Place teabag in mug.
2. Pour boiling water over teabag.
3. Stir.
4. Add 1 sugar.
5. Stir.
6. Add milk.
7. Stir, remove tea bag.

Big Grin

Also, you lot can keep your fancy tea (I like different flavour teas but when you really just want a good "mmmmmm ahhhhh", regular tea is the best). This is tea at its finest:

Okay, so I take it back. Tried Earl Grey and I kinda like the bergamot. Also tried Constant Comment and liked it.

And here's Hitchens on Tea. He obviously drank only black and I still disagree that the water should be boiling even then. Tongue

And here's Orwell's 11 rules of tea he referred to:

"Lastly, tea — unless one is drinking it in the Russian style — should be drunk without sugar. I know very well that I am in a minority here. But still, how can you call yourself a true tealover if you destroy the flavour of your tea by putting sugar in it? It would be equally reasonable to put in pepper or salt. Tea is meant to be bitter, just as beer is meant to be bitter. If you sweeten it, you are no longer tasting the tea, you are merely tasting the sugar; you could make a very similar drink by dissolving sugar in plain hot water."

As it was in the beginning is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.

I put a couple squares of 72-85% dark chocolate in my coffee but I would never rape my tea like that. Tongue

RE: Tea
Probably blasphemy here but I drink plain old Lipton made into sweet iced tea. Drink it pretty much all the time, even take a container of it to work. Now and then when out to eat I try different flavored tea combinations. A favorite is iced tea with mango nectar.

I'm not anti-social. I'm pro-solitude. Sleepy
