Tell me some favorite hot teas

that you like? I'm partial to Earl Grey lavender on this cold wintry afternoons but today I bought a nice Market Spice tea that has cinnamon and orange peels mixed in as well as a China chai that has cardamom, pepper, cinnamon ginger, Cloves in it, towarm a gal right up!

I love all teas... My favorite is chai with steamed milk and hot water, with a tablespoon of honey. Mmmmm.

I love the taste of Licorice tea but it's not supposed to be good for you if you have high blood pressure. It's not caffeinated but I can't drink it before I sleep. I like Ginger tea too, made with fresh ginger. Earl Grey is lovely in the afternoon.

I know I'm lucky...My employer provides an endless variety of teas for it's employees. I think there are 30 or 40 boxes of tea, and loose teas, plus coffee types, hot chocolates, cider mixes, ice tea mixes, vitamin cold beverage mixes, low calorie, regular sugared drinks. It's really nice for us. If we really want to try something new, we just need to ask and they will pick it up for us. I am thankful. ~Bliss

I like chamomile mixed with green tea. And rose hip.
The luster of shiny new appliances can't compete with the virtues of Vintage: namely durability, simplicity, superior cooking and a cool retro look. http://leoladyshousecollectiblesandg....blogspot.com/

Apple-cinnamon herbal tea brewed with a slice of fresh ginger and with a little honey added. Great if you're under the weather.

I like the chamomille with hibiscus. It's good and relaxing.

I have simple tastes. Earl Grey in the morning and early afternoon (that is, if I'm not in a coffee mood). Chamomile in the evening, to come down from all of the caffeine I consume during the day. Nothing added. The straight stuff.

Venkman: What did you DO, Ray?
Ray: I tried to think of the most harmless thing. Something that could never ever possibly destroy us.
Venkman: Nice thinkin', Ray.

I also love chamomile in the evening before bed. It is very calming and sweet.

I didn't know that licorice was bad for folks with high blood pressure. Thanks blissful, good to know.

I'm a teaholic. I drink it all the time. I go through cycles and I have several favorites on any one day.

Black - Market spice is lovely, its so flavorful I like it all alone. Earl Grey with cookies.
White - I LOVE Stash's White Christmas tea. Its a combo of mint, ginger and white tea. Its a delicate flavour but addictive.
Herbal - I love Moroccan Mint, Wintermint, (those are Stash label), and I love the London Fruit and Herb teas. Blackcurrant and raspberry are my two favorites there.

I'm not a big green tea fan unless I'm having sushi. LOL!!
