Instead of sweetening your tea with sugar or honey, try agave nectar. It's really good. Also, Chocolate Thai tea is pretty good. As well as pomegranate wild berry herbal tea.

Rooibos (or red tea) was always one of my favorites. I also enjoy lemongrass, most oolongs, chamomile and anything jasmine.

I've never had tea with milk in it.

I still think that this is the greatest tea ever.

Just bursting with wholesomeness.

Not really. Tea is better without milk, because the catechins, especially epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG) gets bound up with milk in it.

No idea what that means, but it's better without Milk!

Marketspice in Pike Place Market, Seattle - one of the best places to buy loose-leaf teas, in my opinion.
My favorite cup is a toss-up between Marketspice Darjeeling-Apple, and Private Selection Earl Grey, either with a scosh of milk or creamer.


Just passing through.

Bigelow Darjeeling black tea
Stash Early Grey black tea
Stash green chai
Stash green
Stash white chai
Celestial Seasonswhatever red roibus tea
Stash green jasmine tea

Those are my favorites. Sometimes I add lemons or milk to my Early Grey. Got a couple lemon slices in the one I'm drinking right now. Then the lemons are hot when I eat them after drinking my tea and that is yummy!
