Katie, you have to cruise the tea aisle! Even if you're not buying any because your cupboards are over flowing, you just have to stand there and sniff! It's the best!

I really like drinking tea in the morning with a toast, Twinning 'English Breakfast Tea' (Red box) when drinking plain tea or 'Tazo Awake' with milk are my favorites.
A colleague from work brought me a very nice box of Chinese tea that I haven't tried yet, this stuff smells so strong that will probably grow hair in your chest LOL

Peppermint Tea is great, I add a bit of Sugar In The Raw to it, nice and soothing, doesnt need it, but its great.

I also discovered a most excellent Iced Tea today.
Arizona Black & White Tea. Its the best of both worlds, few calories and no high fructose corn syrup. Its excellent and excellent for you.

I used to like both of those also. I would drink either Twinnings English or Irish breakfast tea, then I switched to Tazo Awake too and now I'm hooked on Tea Gerschwender.

I'm Scotch/Irish and I've been drinking tea as soon as I wake up since I was 3 years old. The minute the alarm goes off, I start thinking about my warm cup of tea - gotta have it!

A nice warm cuppa is definately the only way to wake up, it's the best when someone else makes it for you though!

On an early foggy morning trip to visit the Taj Majal last December, I fell in love with Marsala tea at a roadside breakfast joint between New Delhi and Agra. It calmed my nerves (frayed by the difficult travel) and warmed my soul (my teeth were chattering from the cold). It was a hot milky tea with various spices somewhat like the tea referred to as Chai in upscale western hotels.

Now whenever I go to an Indian restaurant I ask for Marsala tea after the meal. They do serve it but it's nothing close to my memory of that hot soothing almost magical potion I had on that memorable morning in a rough exotic land.

Chopstix, what a lovely memory. And so beautifully narrated. Thank you.

I feel that way about Earl Grey (Twinings). On our honeymoon, we stayed at a lovely B&B on Mayne Island. There wasn't a lot to do on the island (but really, on your honeymoon you don't need a lot... ) They served an afternoon tea in the parlor at about 4pm. We'd toured the island, it was drizzling rain so we couldn't do anymore outside activities and our room was being "freshened up" so off we went to the parlor. I was tired, a bit cranky and feeling like I needed to be pampered a bit. Well, when that tray arrived with the tea and cookies on it I thought I'd died and gone to heaven. The tea was just what I needed and I've bought it myself ever since. It has never tasted quite so perfect though...
