If I had to pick a favorite, it would probably be Earl Grey, but I do like most oolongs, and most mint teas. There are a few Russian teas that I get from my supermarket, that I like. They're billed as medicinal, but that's probably horseshit. They are good, though. One's a type of fruity herbal mix, with mint, and green tea, while another is a black tea, with more savory type flavors.
I've tried getting into fruit teas, but I just can't. They're designed to have sugar added to them, and I drink way too much tea to be able to handle that much sugar.
Me too, I love mint tea
Also a big fan of jasmine and green teas
I actually made my own herbal tea (though it's technically not a tea but a herbal 'infusion') by drying mint, rosemary, and thyme - very nice for the winter
Anzu is so beautiful ;n;
I don't think I have a favorite one, but I used to drink basic Earl Grey a lot. Now I mostly drink pu-erh and mint.
I fucking love any tea with apple flavoring. They always smell so good and I fucking love apples
I'm really a fan of white tea. I've got some blueberry/acai white tea (spelling?) that's very tasty. Currently drinking chai.
Idk if it's avaliable in other places but gorreana black tea is really good, its planted in the azores islands, one of the few places in europe that actually produces tea(its kind of cheating because it's an island in the middle of the atlantic, it could just as easily be africa), I'd assume it's avaliable in the US as the island's airline have many connecting flights and commerce is very encouraged
what does detox actually do?
Isnt that one of those things that are put on the box just so people buy them in muh 'health food' stores
Nah, It's only because of the taste. It's in my opinion the best tea that you can get from Kusmi. I've tried like 15-20 different teas and nothing was so tasty than "Detox".
Protip: Drink it "lukewarm" from a CamelBak bottle in bed and don't use additional sugar. Aaaah sooo comfy~ and yummy. >.<
I want to give http://www.amazon.com/Citrus-Lavender-Sage-Herbal-Tea/dp/B005WINLTW
a try soon.
Is it naturally sweet?
(>>152 talking) I never add additional sugar as the taste is already delicious without.
I don't know if you can call it sweet (english isn't my first language, so our notion of sweetness can differ) but it just is so easily drinkable that you're like "wow that's perfect".
So unlike you really like sugar, you're good without IMO.
Oh ok, thought it already had sugar in it, hate tea with sugar.
I assume you meant it has like a sweet aroma, the same way star anise smells sweet for example
(>>153 here) ah yeah sorry for that. english isn't my native language, so sometimes it's a bit difficult to find the right words.
I meant it more like… don't add sugar to it, also if you are otherwise used to add sugar to your tea.
Where's the best place to order loose leaves? I can only find bagged tea and that's fine and great and all but I want to start making my own tea since my mother knows how to do it but she gets her stuff from these Chinese old men a few miles ago that I've never met.
>>184>tea worse than soda
good teeth do not need to be white. I would prefer black teeth as long as they stay functional and do not hurt.
Have you been to the dentists recently? I've drunk green tea with breakfast for years and ended up getting small stains on the sides of a few teeth because of it, and my dentist got rid of those pretty easy when I finally went for a check up (after avoiding it for ~3 or so years). If that doesn't work you could consider actual teeth whitening and to just stop drinking so much tannin-heavy tea in the future so you don't have to worry about it happening again. >>185
group of compounds found in tea, particularly black tea and green tea (apparently). I remember that the stains that I got were small yellow-brown spot sort of things on the sides of a few teeth. If you just drink a cup every day or two and actually go to the dentists semiregularly I wouldn't worry too much about it.
