Tension Tamer! I've had that. I was trying to remember the name of it in my original post but couldn't. That stuff is pretty good. . . isn't there catnip in it? Yummy though. :)

Black Lemon Tea. Sugar and Honey are good to add.

Oh my. I could go on and on here. I am also a huge fan of the White Christmas tea. Its just so smooth. I also love the Prince of Wales tea Robo mentioned. I'm a big Earl Grey fan. But I only like the Twinings brand of Earl Grey. Weird I know.

If you are into herbal stuff, take a look at London Fruit and Herb tea. They are the best fruity teas going. They also make Green and Fruit blends.

I'm a huge Stash Tea fan. I love their teas. My current favorites include the Exotica teas (Reserve Blend and Champagne Oolong for black teas), and I love Moroccan Mint. The lemon ginger is nice too, but can be a bit overpowering at times.

The only type of tea I can drink is green, hot, and plain. Now if you want choices, try TeaGschwendner, Tea Merchants Since 1978

Is that a preference Caine or a dietary restriction?

Since you're a tea lover, I'm assuming you've already tried Earl Grey?

I've never been a big fan of fruity teas, but Earl Grey is definitely one of my long-time standard favorites. Terrific on a cold snowy day with a fire going & a good book.

I love Earl Gray. Always have! I'm not big on fruity teas either. Just the wild sweet orange and anything lemon. Lemon tea is especially soothing on sore throats if served with honey.

I have not tried many teas and am no expert so I can only mention what I prefer. I had always been a big fan of Earl Grey. But found some other tea blends that are not mixed with fruits and assorted flavors when we went shopping. I took my wife to a place called Jungle Jim’s International Marketplace. As the name implies they have imported goods. The store is about an hour’s drive from our home but it is unique enough to make the trip every couple of months.

My wife suggested I look for tea in their “English” area and I found a tea from a company named Taylors of Harrogate. I have tried their Earl Grey which I found very good but my favorite has been their English Breakfast tea. I also am very fond of the Vanilla flavored tea which is one of the few flavored brews I have tried.

Taylors of Harrogate has a website and they sell loose leaf and bag tea. I have not ventured into a loose tea arena because I seem to have enough loose and untidy things in my life so I stick to the simplicity of the bag.

It's the only tea I actually like the flavor of. I've even rejected green jasmine tea at my favorite Chinese restaurant and asked them to bring plain green tea.
