Green tea with honey is nice..but I prefer my green tea with chrysanthemum- it neutralizes the bitterness, and at the same time it's not too sweet.

Does anybody know the tea that looks like a bud but when you pour hot water on it .. it opens up like its blooming .. I thought there was a tea like that.. I've seen it in a few animes.. but i mean it could be just made up.. but i could swear there was something like that IRL

^ Dried chrysanthemum, I think.

I love tea. I suspect it's why I'm constantly in Chinese and Japanese restaurants. I also love the loose leaves selection at Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf. I take my tea in all sorts of ways... hot, cold, milk, lemon, sugar, shake, tea bag, whatever. As long as it's tea, I'd pretty much tap it.

Oolong tea is still my comfort drink. No sugar, no milk, and very cold. Perfect for a warm morning.

Its mitchi mitchi!

Anyway tea > Coffee beeg beeg time!

1. Hot green tea
2. Green Tea Cream Blend from starbucks!
3. Ice Earl Gray
4. Milk Tea

Teas are really nice. Things never go wrong when you head down to a cafe and order a cup of nice tea while reading a good book. Life seems better in way.

And when I watch those vintage british shows (PrideandPrejudice) or dramas with royalty, their porcelain cups and the designs on it were EXQUISITE. And those lip smacking cookies that come along with teas.

Really, its just............

Wow, I've never tried those, Tea...they look pretty nice.

Although we're discussing our favourite teas..I have to say I absolutely hate camomile tea. First time I tried it, I literally puked

I was gonna answer about those being blooming teas, heh. You beat me to it.

Blooming tea is nice, but it's flavor isn't too spectacular, unless you love floral flavors. My mother in law actually gave me a set which had 12 balls and a beautiful glass teapot...unfortunately, I accidentally broke the lid to the pot and now I need to go buy a new one.

Blooming or Flowering teas come in many different varieties, most of which have bachelor buttons, jasmine and chrysanthemum. Each ball can usually make 2-3 pots (meaning one pot but you can use them more than once), and I only use mine for parties or special occasions. I usually steep mine in hot water that already has sugar, since most of my friends/guests don't generally like unsweetened tea.

Also, sugar cubes are your friends when you have company and you're serving them tea. I actually paint mine with colored syrup to make them prettier.

That's what blooming tea looks like when it's opened.

I use tea for my hair sometimes.

As foe drinking I use to only have milk tea but now I'm finding plain is best. Sometimes I go crazy and add some sugar or honey but most times not unless it's chilled sweet tea.

I like my tea hot and without added sugar, honey, milk, etc. most of the time, especially with the stronger black teas, Irish Breakfast being a favorite.

I drink mostly black teas most, then an herbal tea like camemiale or lemon. I don't drink much green tea thru.

Not a big fan of iced tea unless its iced green tea or sweetened (lipton-ish) ice tea on a hot day

and I drink Bubble tea if its avalable at the moment and I want something sweet.
