Earl Grey, Black Tea with Orange, & Jasmine are my favorites; but I also enjoy many herb teas as well.

Hi Breezy, how are you girl?

What kind of jasmine do you get? I have only been able to find green with jasmine lately. I had found one called Silver Jasmine or something like that and can't find it anymore.

I happen to be a fan of sencha green tea; however, I do like chamomile and chai as well if I'm not in the mood for green

Chai - I like my coffee but if I have tea I love to have a cup of Chai. It has to be made the traditional Indian way.

I make mine with some strong black loose leaf tea
I also always use a mortar and pestle to grind some cardamom (pods and all), 1/2 tsp of anise seeds (we call is saunf), a tiny peice of cinnamon
I also add some freshly grated ginger to this

After the tea boils a bit with the water and loose leaf tea and spices, I add sugar and then finish it with the secret ingredient which is evaporated milk and cook it another minute. It gives it the authentic chai taste as if it has been boiling for a long time that you can only get in India at your local chai shops.

The only other tea I like when I have a cold is green tea. Again in loose leaf form. I boil water, shut it add the green leaf, cardamom, lemon juice and viola it's very good and light and soothing.

A cafe just opened up near my house and they have different flavors of teas, some of which I have never heard of. It is loose tea that they will put in a bag for you. Cool. Can't wait to try it.

Now this sounds good. Where do you get it?

There is a place in Lancaster, Pa. where my friend lives that will mix any flavors you want together.

Here are my current favorites:

Peet's Tea - Jasmine Fancy. This tea has nice floral aroma.

Good Earth - Super Green Tea . I just tried this tea this week for the first time. I like other Good Earth Teas and this one is also very good. Good Earth - Good Night is a nice relaxing tea to drink in the evening. It is caffeine free.

Numi - White Orange Spice (I had a cup of this tea this afternoon) or Jasmine Green.

Hey SierraCook, how are things with you? Where do you get that Jasmine tea? Isn't Peets a coffee house?
