I know... but then i'm a bit weird lol And yes, each to their own. If we all liked the same things the world would be a little dull.

The only tea I tried which was ok was Japanese green tea. :)

I like chamomile, green teas, and some herb teas.....not all.

I love the smell of mint, and knew I would love the taste of mint tea. So I planted some in my herb garden. In a year or so, I started making iced mint tea.

It was really good!!!! I drank almost half a pitcher. My nose started running, my throat got sore. I thought -- I'm getting sick, I'll drink more tea. I drank the rest of the pitcher....

You guessed it, I was sick as a dog for 3 days. I am allergic to mint!

Yorkshire Tea is the only normal tea I like the Yorkshire Gold is fantastic, real strong workmans tea, fabulous.

Earl Grey is lovely, and Lady Grey is even nicer, more delicately scented, it's got lemon and orange in it to boost the bergamot notes

I don't know where it's disappeared to but I used to love Vanilla tea, I make my own by putting some vanilla extract in strong tea, but it isn't the same!

Cardamom-Cinnamon from Republic of Tea; Lemon-Ginger from Stash; a black tea from Scandinavia flavored with wildflowers, forgot the name, it is from Sweden. Actually I prefer coffee but occasionally do have a cup of tea, and I love iced tea in the summer, black tea flavored with lemonade and Orange syrup.

My sister always keeps that tea on hand, either Ashby's or Rather Jolly's...can't remember which, but it is outstanding! Your Yorkshire Gold sounds like Taylor's.
