I'm a tea freak. Seriously. I think it will overcome coffee as the drink of choice one day . . .

I'm sipping some Celestial Seasonings green tea.

Agreed on all points except for the second half of #4. 8 Minutes may be too long for some teas. Steeping time depends largely on the blend. If you were to steep a Darjeeling for 8 minutes with (as in #3) boiling water, you'd end up with a bitter mess and you'd lose all the soft, sweet, rosy flavours. Darjeeling ought to be made with very hot (close to boiling, or just boilied) water, and steeped for 4-6 minutes.

Obviously the exception isn't the rule, but 8 minutes of steeping, in a lot of cases, makes a very strong cup of tea that might sacrifice natural flavours in the release of those bitter tannens. It's all personal taste, though. Best bet is to experiment with it until you find a preparation that you enjoy.

Touche'. As a lawyer, I should know better than to leave ambiguities in my writing -- I meant to say, 8 minutes of steeping time for run-of-the-mill black tea.

Thanks for the tips.

I studied in London for four months and I came back with an appreciation and love for all-things pub, and all-things black tea.
I do use a a bit of milk and organic sugar. I was so excited to find an assortment of black tea at the store the other day.
Earl Grey is my favorite though.
Does anyone else get headaches from green and peppermint tea?

Ever since coming back from Dublin, I've become a major tea freak. Tea solves all problems.

This could be bad, since I work at Starbucks.

Tetley makes a Rooibos blend in their herbal line. I've not tried it myself, but I just might.
