Best Teas ?
#1
Which ones do you drink for your health, or just drink in general. Last couple of weeks I've really gotten into Echinacea, various Green Teas, and Chamomile. For some reason I just can't get into Licorice Root, but if it's very nutritious I'll force it down. a double bag dose of Sleepy Time Extra seems to work pretty well when I have insomnia.

Sweet Tea.  Cold.  There is no other.

There is a box in the kitchen cabinet, and it has a picture of a coffee cup and saucer on it, but I don't know anyone who drinks sweet tea from a coffee cup so I assume that is some foreign packaging.

I'm primarily a coffee drinker so when I have tea, it has to be something strong like Irish Breakfast.

I grew up drinking tea. Not surprising, since my Mother was English. I usually start the day with a coffee, and drink tea the rest of the day. Tetley's black orange pekoe is my go-to. I buy it loose and I have a tea ball if I'm making a pot, or a smaller infuser for a single cup. In the evening I drink herbal teas, often Sleepy Time or straight chamomile.

Don't know about "best," but I like:

A decent English/Irish Breafkast tea (Irish is stronger and redder)
Earl Grey
Yogi Egyptian Licorice (don't let the licorice bit fool you; this stuff is really good)
Celestial Seasonings Chai w/ milk and sugar
Celestial Seasonings Almond Sunset w/ milk and sugar
Bigelow Plantation Mint w/ sugar
Celestial Seasonings Sleepytime
Peppermint

You didn't ask, but the best coffee I know of is Mystic Monks Dark Roast Brazil -- whole beans you grind as you go, prepared in a French Press. Man!

Now that you mention it, I love this one! Of course, I love licorice. And there is no such thing as red 'licorice'! There is some horrid red confection that some people call 'licorice'. When I manage to get to Lincoln, an absolute must is a visit to Licorice International, a shop dedicated totally to licorices from around the world.

Unfortunately, the Yogi teas are not available locally, and I'm trying to get away from buying online unless it's necessary.

I have two go to types of tea.

The first one I like to drink is English breakfast. I drink this while I'm at home. The other one is an Oolong tea. I drink this one while I'm at work.

Both Bigelow brand. For some reason the other brands that don't taste good or they make my throat scratch.

There was a point when I drank tea, way back. My fave was a Celestial Seasonings product named Morning Thunder. Manliest container, replete with a bison.  Big Grin

This particular tea is magical. When it's in your mouth, it's OK-meh, but then you swallow and there's an explosion of flavor. It's really interesting and delicious. I love it. (It also might be helpful for people suffering from chemo side effects, Sjogren's, etc. -- the dry mouth stuff. Worth checking out anyway).
