Chamomile tea is delicious as is peppermint. I like the English Breakfast tea
also. Green tea is an excellent antioxidant tonic. I drink very little coffee
except for an occasional de-caffeinated. The strong Expresso causes
havoc.

I prefer plain green tea or Gemaicha tea (green tea with roasted rice).

Not a fan of fruit flavoured ´teas I'd have to say, but do like your bog-standard black tea with a dash of milk - or occasionally a cup of earl grey!

We're being cheapskates and buy Tower teabags - which, if you read the small print on the back, are "Packed for R.Twining & Co. Ltd. London England".
Available in both black (Breakfast Tea) or Earl Grey from your local ICA!

Maybe I should get ICA to start sponsoring my posts?

This is a train wreck!

I primarily run on long-chin and bai-hao. And yes, the latter is expensive. But I enjoy a good oolong once in a while.

The other day I found a tea called Earl Greg at a cafe nearby. That was quite hilarious =)

roobios is good, but i like most green teas, white tea as you mention is great as well (but i dont think it has that much caffinee, not sure if that was a positive or negative). I drink probably about 5 cups a day (when most of my office mates take coffee, i go for tea.
I dont drink coffee unless i am in a really booooring meeting, so probably a few cups a day, lol, but actually very rarely. Oddly though I love coffee icecream.

What exactly is a train wreck and in what way is it one?

As for my tea preferences, I suppose I'm a tea purist. I'll forgo any fruity tea for plain old English Breakfast with milk and sugar. Since I've been in Sweden I've met only one other person who takes milk in her tea, but she likes it extremely milky: about half milk and half tea. Craziness.

Yorkshire for the mornings with a bacon sandwich, and then PG tips for the rest of the day smile.gif

And Liptons lemon iced tea for hot days...or just for when you run out of Robinsons!

I like the Södermalm loose tea (I think that's what it's called).

I stay away from teabags as much as possible (both the noun and the verb).

hello everyone, i have been reading most forums in 'discuss' for quite sometime now and today, i joined as a member!

so, talking about tea, i love to have a cup of twinnings or lipton english breakfast tea. i like lipton red label as well. i generally like to boil milk, tea leaves or powder and sugar for my tea..mmmm...awesome!! (a little longer process, but, tastes so much better than having to add cold milk in tea or drink it the swedish way...well, that's my personal opinion, ofcourse!) darjeeling tea didn't seem very nice...have to try chamomile.

Best stock up if you are a Darjeeling drinker,before astronomical prices hit the shelves!

Quote BBC:An indefinite strike called by a regional political party has affected tea production in the Darjeeling hills in West Bengal state.

Formosa Oolong is my tea of choice, loose.
I developed my taste for tea while living in Taiwan... so I like having something that brings back those memories instantly, and is also delicious.
I much prefer tea over coffee.
