    Does anyone have any other good tea suggestions, besides just 'green'. Although I enjoy it alot, I'm trying to expand my horizons. :)

    matte, chai, and roobis are my going favorites... once summer comes around though, you can't go wrong with peppermint tea - iced.

    yummy! :D

    Earle Grey is a good tea. It is flavored with oil of Bergemot, which makes it unique. One of my favorites.

    I really recommend Lapsong Soushong tea. It is smoke flavored, and has a real bite. Took some getting used to, but now I am hooked.

    A classic is Darjeeling, which is named after a province in India. It is a light tea.

    Twinnings of London sells good tea; that's what I drink most often. Stash is also a very good brand. You should try herbals also, there are lots.

    I like peppermint. When I have it hot I add a spoon of honey. Other times I leave it to chill....beautiful.

    Some other nice flavors are lemon and honey, and ginger.

    Licorice tea is the best. Peppermint is also good, of course.

    Chai Tea Recipe.


    2 tbls tea leaves
    12 cloves
    12 cardamon pods crushed up a bit (or 1 tsp of cardoman seeds)
    1 cinnamon stick (or cinnamon bark, even better)
    1 star anniseed (liquorice flavour seed thingy which is optional)
    Fresh Ginger

    Put all of this into a medium saucepan, bring to boil, simmer 5 minutes then strain into mugs and top with soy milk. You could use cow milk I suppose but I don't know what it tastes like. But with soy milk it's extra yummy. If you buy all the ingredients above you will have enough to make many teas, so it is a worthwhile investment! There are probably more simple ways to make it but this way is the best!

    licorice root tea!

    :D
     
  19. I'm in love with Yerba Matte right now... add some licorsh (sp) root (to add sweetness, it's sweeter than sugar) and another loose tea like honey brush... i just keep the same batch in my tea pot and keep re-filling it.....
    You can also add fennel seeds, pepermint, but my fave is the licorsh root....
