    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. :D:D

    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 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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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. :44:

    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.

    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.

    More of a coffee guy, but my wife has been getting me to drink more tea lately. I prefer black tea with a slice of lemon. We either have Ahmed or Twinings in the house.

    I like black teas. I find that if I drink the same brand for long I become accustom to the taste and it becomes common place; so I switch brands one box at a time. PG Tips, Lyons, Typhoo, Liptorn, even Tetley all get there turns in rotation.

    When I’m putting tea into a thermos to drink, say on a hunting stand later in the day, I prefer green teas as they don’t seem to continue to steep the same way a black tea does.

    Heaven forbid I should ever have to make a choice of just a few, or even one!

    This is my personal, pastoral, tea station in my office. The gear for tea while hiking is at home; stoves, kettles, kuksas and such.

    Tea is important.

    Yes I'm an addict, but I can stop any time I want to, I just don't want to.

    Zojurushi 4l hot pot and over 35 different varieties of tea; black, oolong, green, white, herbals, all sorts.

    Tea has become a significant part of youth ministry for me, starting in 8th grade, during Confirmation classes, tea becomes a time to sit and relax and talk together. I send a lot of tea to these kids who are now in college and fellow addicts.

    I'm fairly new to hot tea, we never drank it growing up. So, Constant Comment, Chai Spice and red raspberry are some I favor and have most often. If I add anything, it's generally a touch of caramel flavored creamer. No sugar/honey! Morning Crow likes honey in his tea, but, no cream! :) I must expand my tea horizons & try some of the these, that y'all have talked about! Thanks!
