    Ceylon, it was quite a surprise cos' I usually just go for the normal
    one. When I stayed in this place during a holiday, they had plain
    Ceylon lemon tea for breakfast, really quite nice.

    English or Irish Breakfast Tea with just a small amount of sugar and a
    bit of cream
    Standard Orange pekoe - Lipton's etc, just a bit of sugar
    Don't touch Earl Grey, the smell of oil of bergamot makes me want to
    gag.
    Gunpowder green tea - a bit of sugar
    Herbal tisanes - just a bit of sugar. Myfavorites are Ruby Mist (a
    hibiscus based tea from Stash)straight Jamaica tea (hibiscus tea),
    chamomile, Evening In Missoula from the Montana Tea and Spice Company.

    I drink my hot tea, English style, with milk and sugar (or some
    sweetener). I use Red Rose tea, unless I can find some good loose
    tea. No fancy teas for me, and no decaf.

    I am not a big fan of flavored teas, or Earl Grey. That isn't tea, to
    me.

    I preferred mine iced. Last summer I discovered a large patch of wild
    spearmint growing on my farm. I add a hand full of the leaves to the
    boiling water with a couple quart sized Luzianne tea bags. The result
    is the most refreshing drink I have ever experienced. My co-workers
    beg me to bring a large Thermos of spearmint tea to work to share.

    I found this loose tea in an Asian market in Phoenix, and I really
    liked it. Have been trying to find it ever since, but haven't been
    very lucky.

    If anyone in the SF bay area knows where to find it, let me know. Or
    in Sacramento...

    I prefer my tea either in convenient chai form or with lots of milk and
    sugar. (Forget "one lump or two"!) I just don't like bitter foods or
    drink, and need enough sweeteners to take the edge off and make it
    palatable to me.

    Same here. Good strong black tea, with milk and sugar (although it is
    a sweetener nowadays).

    I also add a little sweetner to take the edge off the fresh mint.

    I order mine from Peet's. I have no idea how they compare price or
    quality-wise with the sites you've already looked at. I don't drink
    tea all that often, so what seems fine to me may or may not actually be
    all that good.

    I like mine without milk or sugar. Sometimes I put 1/4 tsp of honey in
    my herbal teas but not very often.

    How nice!! But from all I hear, spearmint (any mint?) will run rampant
    if allowed? Do them a favor and bring them some mint cuttings so they
    can make their own tea too :)
    I find that mint in iced tea doesn't require as much sweetener.

    I occasionally drink tea blends - Bigelow makes a few like Lemon Lift and
    Spearmint (which makes a nice iced tea!), Raspberry and Chamomile. I take
    my tea with a splash of milk and sometimes a bit of honey.

    I don't drink coffee these days unless I have to be awake for something
    *early*.

    But I have to tell you, yesterday I had my first ever cup of hot coffee from
    McDonald's. I was early to go take my insurance licensing exam so I stopped
    at McD's for a cup of coffee. I wasn't in a moving vehicle nor did I take
    the top off the cup. But I can now understand why that poor old woman sued
    after spilling some of this in her lap! Folks, it's like *lava*. I've
    never had a cup of coffee that hot anywhere. Took 20 minutes before I could
    even take a sip without burning my tongue and tears springing to my eyes.

    I like any kind of tea and keep several on hand, but my favorite is
    plain ol' Red Rose with a couple slivers of fresh ginger added to the
    brew.
    No sugar..no milk..no nothin' except the ginger.

    I prefer plain tea, no milk or cream or sugar, and not to strong.

    > Or are you more into the 'other' beverage?


    I prefer coffee, and on the strong side.

    I've tried Earl Gray several times but I find it too perfumy.

    My latest tea experiment was with Lapsang Souchong. Thinking it would just
    be strong the way I like it, I made a 6 cup pot. The smell reminded me of
    walking on the railroad tracks (creosoted railway ties). Then I tasted it.
    Brought back memories of my dad's habit of making a pot of tea before supper
    and letting it brew (not steep) on the stove until we'd all eaten. Not tea
    anymore but I always had ink for my fountain pen. ;o)

    Hot tea: plain, no lemon, sugar or milk. Unless I've got a sore throat,
    then I'll put honey and lemon in it.

    Ice tea: lots of ice, lemon slices, no sugar.

    I'm not real adventurous with tea, haven't even *tried* green tea. I tried
    that Arizona Tea one time, and can't figure out why so many people like it -
    I couldn't taste the tea at all. I won't even try Snapple Tea.
