I have two teas I love, both are iced, one is a combination of brewed tea mixed with snapple mango madness, the other I just had and plan to work on fixing it myself, it was a green tea with a lovely mint flavor, not bold just soft and mild..Add a sprig of fresh mint to the glass and it is wonderful.

ooh what a great topic!! I love tea

here's whats in my tea cupboard, all are loose teas unless other wise stated

Pai Mu Tan- a white tea, nice jammy flavors with sweet notes, white tea is kind of in now, its has the most Beneficial anti-oxidant properties

Songzhong- a green tea that is smoked, very nice and rich flavorful, a green tea that isn't afraid to be bold

Soom- a darjeeling black tea that is very expensive, its a first flushing, very elegant,

New Monks Blend- a rich dark tea with blended natural flavors

Roobios blueberry- roobios herbal tea with dried blueberries

Cape Town Rooibos- a herbal tea, produces a red tea with floral notes and berry undertones

For Iced tea I use Lipton yellow label, it comes in a standard tea bag and produces a mild tea with a deep liqour


Hey Dave, I'd like to try this Lapsang su chong, what's it like?

Not a huge tea fan but my favourite is Ceylon Supreme tea, with second place going to Traditional Afternoon. I do enjoy a good iced tea as well as Chinese and Japanese teas. I have about eight different teas in my cupboard at the moment. Not keen on the flavoured herbals or the fragrant teas (like Earl Grey). And I never have tea with milk and it has to be hot.

I enjoy many different flavors, but the one I come back to is Constant Comment. It has just a nice flavor, it needs no sugar or anything else to complete the taste. I even like it iced too.

Right this second I am drinking Iron Buddha Oolong. I have about 10 other types in my cabinet right now though and I love each one. Some are green, some are white. I also have black, herbal, roobios, and mate. All of my teas are loose leaf.

Check out Teavana. They are one of many great tea places that have sprung up recently. They have a store near me which is why I use them as I can go in on my lunch break, but their teas are very high quality and their selection is great.

I use their perfect tea maker which makes the tea brewing process so easy and fun.
