I gotta say the green tea is my favorite and what about you?
just plain old black tea. Lipton, Red Rose,etc. loose, bags, don't matter much. greens ok but i'll pass on anything flavored.
I like both green and black, but usually drink green. Four bags of green and two of Bigelow peppermint steeped in a quart of water and I'm ready for the day.
I like tea. (But I like coffee too.)
Not too many of each have offended me, sure there are plenty I'm in no hurry to try again but if I had to pick one for a cup right now I'd say; English Breakfast with the water heated over a Cedar fire, a teaspoon of honey and birdsong on the side.
Mountain Huckleberry herbal tea
@Badey asked a similar question earlier this year and got some great responses.
Your Cup of Tea?
Irish Breakfast Tea. nice and strong tea.
English Breakfast tea for me.
I usually drink black tea (Earl Gray, Darjeeling, Orange Pekoe...). Since I visited a small tea factory working for Lipton in Ceylon (Sri Lanka), I avoid breakfast tea. I will not post what breakfast tea really means on a public forum but it's what they call "dust"...
I guess ignorance was bliss....
I prefer to have green tea. It makes me to feel fresh and have no side effects. Apart from this, green tea helps in weight loss and have several health benefits
Hemlock mixed with a few pine needles. Is my favorite.(The tree of course)
Grew up on Red Rose strong with a pinch of good ol white sugar. Tried Earl Grey hot and black cause I am a Trekky. Never really looked back other than a pinch of sugar or honey.
Mint or chamomile, infusions since they are herbs and not teas.
A lot of nights I have one or the other.
I like both hot and cold teas but not a fan of sweet tea. Green tea is what I have the most of followed by earl grey. When I am going out for dinner I almost always order an unsweetened tea or Arnold Palmer.
Morning Thunder (Celestial Seasonings)
SleepyTime EXTRA (Celestial Seasonings)
These are all in my rotation
Not much for hot tea, but iced tea is a favorite. I'm not picky but if I had to pick, Green Tea would be it.
Plain old Lipton for hot tea.
My wife makes me a cold tea out of a variety of the fruit leaf teas (blackberry, blueberry, etc) that she sweetens with honey and puts in a big pitcher for me in the fridge all summer... good stuff.
i'm assuming this is about hot tea.
i used to enjoy twining's lapsang souchong, but it's gotten so hard to find
i've pretty much given it up. the last time, i had to order some direct, but i
really don't like buying a whole big box at the time, so when what i have
here is gone that will be the end of that. i used to be able to buy it around here,
but now this area is mainly border jumpers, so the grocery stores are geared
toward those foods and beverages. i have bought this stuff called " Family
organic black tea" at the vietnamese grocery store and it's fairly decent. it's
also packaged individually in really nice thick durable mylar packages that are tailor
made for taking camping or hiking in your pack or haversack etc. these packs
won't wilt and get soggy like a paper or waxed paper envelope will. it's not
too bad as far as hot tea goes. the last year or so i've been harvesting yaupon
leaves at my place instead of mowing the bushes down with the tractor.
it's not too bad and it's the only plant we have here with caffeine that we
can use for tea. and i have an inexhaustible lifetime's supply at my fingertips.
Sun tea, heavily Iced, mixed with Lemonade. Aka Arnold Palmer. It's quite refreshing for me.
Hot, black, double strong, 2 sugars.... occasionally a dash of milk.
I drink black, orange or blended (Lipton) tea. Or Earl Grey like the Trekkie I am!
I got into hot tea in Iraq, mostly Chai. I also liked the Senegalese Ataya but have never found it anywhere. Anytime I am in a restaurant that serves it, I get Morracan mint tea.
Da Hong Pao is about all I drink. Usually buy it by the pound.
I'm more of a coffee drinker around home, but when I'm in the woods, tea tastes better to me. Don't know why. I drink whatever the better half buys, generally Lipton black tea.
Russian caravan , Margret Hope plantation fall flush Darjeeling. Dragonwell green . red rose for iced tea
Here are a few of my favorites. Buy the canister once and then the 250 count bulk bags. The HiCaf teas work well for me.
I use the Kroger store brand Earl Grey which is inexpensive but remarkably good. I think their store brand is called "simple truth". English breakfast is another favorite. I tend to drink tea late in the day and black coffee in the morning. When on a day hike tea is easier to brew than coffee. Fire up the alcohol stove and boil some water. I bought a British military BCB Mk. 2 cooker with anodized aluminum mug and a NATO canteen and black plastic mug. The anodized aluminum mug is great. I picked up an aftermarket stainless lid for it. After boiling the water I poor it over into the plastic NATO mug which contains the tea bag etc. Don't have to worry about burning my lips on the cup I boiled the water in. My only issue is that the plastic mug is jet black. It makes it difficult to judge tea/coffee strength. Not as much of an issue with tea as it is when I try and make pour over brewed coffee.
Black tea, strong, no sweetener.
Green tea, strong, no sweetener.
Peppermint herbal, strong, a dollop of honey.
It is new way to mix peppermint in green tea for me.
Grew up on Constant Comment Orange Pekoe ....... if there's no coffee, then that's my go to.
I also like Iced Lemon Tea.
Oh..I haven't seen this thread..
Yep, I also think so. And what kind of green tea do you like best?
I hike through the valley of the Jinn until I come to the River of The Golden Trout. Then I climb the South face of the Mountain of the Seven winds. Halfway up I find the tea of serenity, and I pick only the youngest leaves. Or I just drink whatever the wife put in the cabinet that week.
