Share your favorites and explain why they are so good!

My long-term companion Fennel shall be elected to the top. The tea offers a smooth taste, that doesn't wear off with time, making preparation of large amounts in one go possible without drawbacks.
You can use fresh plants or dried seeds and store them for years. It is cheap, supports digestion and has sedating qualities.

I like proper Chinese white tea. When it's done right, and swirled with a spoon of honey, it's very subtle and flowery. I also like jasmine green teas. Those are probably my favorite.

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.

Who cares about fancy-schmancy honey lavender tea infused with rain from the Amazon? Keep it simple with a good ol' builder's.

I used to have builder's tea for breakfast or tea time, yet I'm not a builder nor am I engaged in physical labor, so unsweetened brew is the way to go.

I love Peppermint tea, the way it lowers down my blood pressure is nice and it also reminds me of cold snowy landscapes - it tastes so fresh


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

Cant beat a nice cup of tetley!


I'm really a fan of white tea. I've got some blueberry/acai white tea (spelling?) that's very tasty. Currently drinking chai.

Never been a tea fanatic to be honest, but I really love rooibos. The pine taste, the color, the smell and the way it appease me make it a personal favorite. I also like jasmine tea to some extend, or basically anything that tastes like flowers.

I really love strawberry teas lately. My favorite is probably the wild strawberry tea by Adagio teas. Other than that I tend to stick to a regular green tea, maybe with some lemongrass in it. It's really refreshing when iced.


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

I love this mate tea. I'm addicted to its taste.

There is also BB Detox. But yeah, Detox is my favorite too. :3


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

What does it do? The taste is super good, and it's healthy too. That's all.


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.


>additional sugar
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.

just regular earl grey or english breakfast is good, but my absolute favourite is Sencha Wild Grey. It's kind of a mix between green tea and earl grey it's delicious
(pic related that's it)


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.



Thanks fam.

>drink tea all the time
>teeth are yellow as fuck even though I brush and floss twice a day
>it turns out that tannin is actually some kind of super stain-catalyst that makes tea even worse for your teeth than things like coffee or soda

What tannin? Tannin in tea? What's tannin? Should I stop drinking tea if I want white teeth?


>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.

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.
