Using Twinings tea finder magic, I've selected "Irish Breakfast" (A strong, full bodied black tea blend with a rich flavour and aroma)
Damn, the price is right too

chev, you just brought up a good point : why should african americans slander/slur each other, by using the term "nigga" while reffering to each other, i mean, should us white boys start calling each other "cracka"? or what?

I hate everyone, so you don't have to.

Tea doesn't age well like whiskey or wine...

Oooo Earl Grey tea is nice What about herbal teas? Anyone like them? I used to like peppermint tea, but I kinda went off it. A lot of the time, I find herbal teas smell better than they taste...

The world in a teacup.

Cylon from Sri Lanka or Darjeling from India for general drinking, Assam for a bit more strength.

Keemun and Oolong from China, don't drink this much. Got into the habit after Tai Chi practise, trying to keep my head in the same place for a while longer I guess.

Kuuma Lumous from Finland, because it's there.

Avoid any tea that comes from Switzerland and is coloured blue.

Oh ... and thank you for not drinking Liptons.

I like Earl Grey, but it makes my teeth hurt?. Some of the chinese oolongs are really tasty, but I prefer to buy them at the local chinese restaurant. Black teas, like you'll find in slavic countries are also quite superior, but in general, I think in america, we have a "tea gap". My british friends agree, that in america, we don't have really good tea.

I think milk in tea sucks, so I guess I'm not british. Luckily my local coffee house sells some india black tea that is at least passable. Tea should be consumed in a glass cup for some reason I don't understand. It just tastes better.

Perhaps my 1/4 polish ancestry leaves me with that tradition. I do enjoy "Constant Comment" in the winter, with a lot of sugar, which I don't use with oolong or black tea, but that is the extent that I would partake of Bigelow tea.

And Liptons is vile I don't know how anyone could drink it.

Lose the tea bag too, go buy a perforated spoon that is designed to brew tea. I don't know if all of you have seen these, but it's a stainless steel spoon, that has a door and a clip to hold the tea within. Or better actually take the time to use a metal strainer and a teapot.

Diligence in the selection of fine tea and proper preparation make it a better experience.

I like both Earl Grey and Chinese green tea.

But I rarely drink tea. I'm a coffee addict.

HMMM! coffee....... I'm finding some of the mexican stuff we're getting here in Oregon, to be black and fine. It's good even before you drink it. Makes the house smell nice.

That's the problem with mainly wine: no matter how long it gets to age, it'll never turn into beer

Usually no tea or coffee for me, but if I'm sick, I'll take some tea and honey.

Rarely, I'll enjoy a Red Rose tea at my parents' place. A pinch of sugar, nothing more. Of course, Red Rose tea also has those nifty collectable ceramic figurines that you get every time you buy a box.

Don't forget to live before you die.

Actually most wines don't age well.
And once whiskey is in the bottle it doesn't continue to age.

I love tea, especially chai. Lately my wife and I have been getting into rooibos teas

Of course, it's not just the type of tea that makes the difference, it's the water as well.
Back in my truck driving days I sampled tea made all over Britain and the Continent and the very best was always from the North of England. I fact one of the guys kept a large glass water cooler bottle that he always refilled when he was in Yorkshire. I used to laugh until I did a trip with him one time and he brewed a cuppa half way across France - it was perfect.
