I really like rosehip or rosehip-hibiscus as unsweetened ice tea. It has a beautiful red colour and a really nice zing.

If you make it really sweet, you can fool a lot of people into thinking it's red Cool-aid.

Aw nuts! You just reminded me that I had intended to buy some Ruby Mist tea with my last Stash order and I totally forgot! Phooey!!

What does the Ruby Mist tea taste like? Is it a black tea?

Bengal spice is quickly becoming a favorite.

I'm on a Numi tea kick right now - I can't get enough of it! My absolute favorite is the Toasted Rice green tea. It isn't at all fruity and has a nutty taste thanks to the rice. I love it when I don't want anything sweet. I also love their jasmine green tea - floral smell, but the taste is nice. Their decaf vanilla black tea is so smooth and not over-powered by vanilla, just a hint of it.

Last week in Seattle, I went to MarketSpice in Pike's Place and got their cinnamon orange tea. It is so good - more like drinking cider than tea. I'll have to drink that slowly because I won't be in Seattle again.

chopper and Alix, the memories and tea stories you brought up are just so touching. Thanks for sharing with us. Life is beautiful, because of these moments.

I normally drink plain green tea in the morning. No honey/sugar/milk. I find it very refreshing.

I also love charmomile tea. It helps to relieve my headache when I'm stressed.

Ranchwifeg, Numi tea is awesome! I found some desert lime and LOVE it.

Savory, thanks. Tea is the ultimate comfort in my eyes. I love to sit with tea and just...be.

Looks like President's Choice doesn't make English Breakfast any more. Well, they quit calling it English Breakfast and started calling it something like "Classic English Black Tea". Last time I looked, all I could find was a "Classic Orange Pekoe" (Well, there was green tea and Earl Grey, but that was the only plain, black tea). I bought a box of Twinnings English Breakfast Tea instead.
