Nice, I love the Moroccan. I'm out right now though, so I just go with some Earl Gray with a spot of milk.

I like most black and minty teas, hate the fruity ones though.

Tea is pretty awesome. It's basically the only hot beverage I ever drink (coffee sucks). There's a really good loose tea place a short walk from my house, very tempting....

Same here. Stash use to make one, well maybe they still do and my stores just stopped carrying it... but their Moroccan mint green tea was amazing, and was only $2.79 for 20 bags. Damn that stuff was good. I love the mint ones in general, especially when the mint is strong enough to just blast your sinuses and clear everything up. For under $3 a box, you couldn't beat it.

My mom is a "tea"cher and I was born in Delaware, so she thought it clever to get me a tea kit one year. I've been happy ever since.

Tea is probably my favourite souvenir to buy on vacation. A local tea shop is usually one of the first things I look for when I arrive in a new city on vacation. Any time I take a whiff of any of the teas I've bought on vacation, it immediately takes me back to the place where I bought it, and I can remember just about every detail of the place.

Right now on my shelf I have a bag of orange tea I bought at a Christmas market in Freiburg, Germany, a bag of African Cream Rooibos that I bought at the Granville Market in Vancouver, and a can of Peet's Pride of the Port that I got at the Ferry Terminal market in San Francisco (that I drink with a small jar of chai honey that I bought from another vendor there).

I mostly drink black and green. I've been using them to replace soda in my diet, so I go through a lot.

Speaking of Teavana, I go there and fill bottles up with free samples sometimes.

Not a fan of green tea.

I like my tea black, or rooibos.

I have some Assam tea from Germany and Rooibos Chai from South Africa - both amazing.

Got an electric tea kettle for Christmas, where you just punch in the temp... This thing is ****ing awesome, and the tea is unbelievably better when it's actually brewed for the right temp and time.

The best place to get a quick tea around me is Dunkin Donuts. Fantastically brewed and perfect. It obviously varies to which one you go to (I'm sure some are terrible). But for a quick drive-through tea? Not much better to me.

Completely off topic, and this might be a weird complaint... but I find the Dunkin Donuts by me to be too nice. The DD's I grew up with in and around Chicago, were absolutely filthy. The ones out here almost look like something you'd find in a relatively nice hotel lobby, with sofas, chairs, and crap like that. I'd rather my DD look like they haven't mopped the floors in a month, and like the coffee has been burnt to all hell.

I like my tea like I like my coffee, just give me the regular oolong, green tea, black tea...etc. I can't stand the triple berries, chocolate truffle infused, peach flavored, teas that are basically flavored water made for people who don't know how to actually drink or appreciate tea. Its like stuffing a fish with so much bacon that you can't barely taste the fish and then claim that you cook a mean fish.

When I make a cup of tea, I boil the water in the microwave. Does that really make any significant difference in the outcome?
