I'm the only person I know in England who drinks tea.

wow, thanks for making this thread....... it reminded me of Green Tea......


I haven't had it in sooo long...... and I actually am making some awesome sticky rice right now(or at least trying to do it right), and green tea would be spank-tacular with it.



I can't stand "English" teas. Or coffee. So there ->

I like Cammomile, and there is a really good "tension tamer" by some brand that mixes cammomile and vanilla.

Green tea is so bitter, so strong, so.... bad tasting that I think I've really come to like it.

Mmm...I drink tea everyday. Speaking of jasmine, I haven't had any jasmine green tea in a while. Time to find some more...

I like Darjeeling, myself. Nice and subtle.

Of course, I do object to 'hot tea'... that'd be like saying 'hot coffee', or 'cold beer'. :P Silly Amer'cans. If it's traditionally served hot, why say hot? Although, I suppose us Canadians deserve some flack for sweetening our iced tea with more sugar than a bowl-full of sugar.

Drinking Twinings Darjeeling right now ... mmmmm. I'm half English and half American, and always smile at the two countries' different views on tea.

In England, it's not wussy to drink it. Big loud aggressive dudes can come home from the pubs, sit down on the couch, and fix a cup of tea without having their manhood challenged.

In America, tea is associated with bubble baths, kittens, blustery days, and princesses.

So weird!

I love Darjeeling too. But I also like fruit teas, blackcurrunt being my favourite.

That's very good too.

I know some people who drown their tea with milk (sometimes even coffee creamer!) and sugar and then wonder why it tastes awful. Why the hell would you want to do that? The perfect cup of tea has only a tiny drop of milk and half a teaspoon of sugar/no sugar.

Okay, I know I'm being picky but this is not really tea in the technical sense. Sure, it has tea in the name but it's herbal tea. It doesn't have the camelia sinensis or tea plant. Neither does chamomile.

I do love teas, my favorite being white teas (and in particular, the kind with Chrysanthemum flowers mixed in). The best part about teas is that they actually remove calories per cup!

I think it is sacreligious to do any of the following with tea:

1. Use cream instead of milk

2. Start with anything but very cold water

3. Fail to allow the water to come to a full boil, or use hot water

4. Drink the tea with the bag still in the mug: you have to allow the tea to steep for 8 minutes, then you remove the bag and drink it.

My late English grandmother would be so proud of me if she could read this!

Aren't you only supposed to use loose tea too?


Actually I do like loose tea, because then I can blend to fit my every whim.

Tea bags are nice when I'm in a hurry though.
