    Tea

    I'm a big tea drinker, and after searching for a past thread on it, I didn't find one. My question is, what are your favorite teas to drink and why?

    I drink about 12 cups of Traditional Medicinals Chamomile or Nighty Night tea a week, because I love the taste and it is very relaxing. I also drink a few cups of Dandelion Root because it tastes alright and hippies say it's good for the liver. And usually a couple cups of Earl Grey in the morning, when I'm not feeling like coffee.

    Re: Tea

    Luzianne Iced Tea. One old Hilton ISU thermal mug every morning.


    I'd agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong.

    Back on topic, I am a fan of Ice tea, not much on hot tea, and none of that Sweet Tea crap. The North won the damn war, keep your diabetes laden sweet tea outta my restaurants.

    Re: Tea

    My dad used green tea to kick his Pepsi habit, and now hes hooked on the stuff. Will only drink stuff that he buys in Chicago's chinatown. It's not too bad.

    Re: Tea

    Had chamomile tea last night before bed and I slept like a baby. I also like Jasmin tea with a little honey.




    Edit: I realize how dainty I sound, but I don't care.

    Some Green teas are really powerful. The jitters I get from one cup of it is similar to about 4 cups of coffee.

    Ya he gets tea leaves and uses them all day, just keeps adding water to his mug as he's teaching. So at the end of the day he's drinking mostly just water with tea leaves in it. It just gives him the little boost he needs to keep working, now that he's getting older haha.

    I have a cup of green tea every morning. It's got less caffeine than black tea, unless you're drinking some kind of infused green tea.

    I also enjoy a certain kind of medicinal tea, but I don't drink it.

    Bigelow green tea in the morning at work (hey, it's the free stuff provided by work).
