I do. I love a cup of tea. I have green and white and black tea in my office at work too. So I can have the cup I desire, when I desire it!

Yeah, why?

tranquilsea's avatar

I love tea. I can’t drink coffee because it makes me sick.

My current favourite tea is this one. A delicious buttered rum black tea.

I am a tea lover! Sweet PG Tips or a srong Earl Grey are some of life’s comforts.

No. I consider it dirty water.

Joker94's avatar

No…every cup I’ve ever had has tasted to bitter to me.

Yes but not all the time.

Iced tea (preferably Earl Grey) with no sugar and no lemon is my favorite drink in the whole wide world.

The one time that I got to go to England, I drank hot tea with milk every single day. It’s not bad, but I think I prefer it without milk. But when I was over there, I simply had to have it and it made me feel sooooooo British. I have a sick, sick problem. I admit that I Kardamom, am an Anglophile! Don’t even get me started on the clotted cream , such a naughty name for something so delicious! : – P

I never drank coffee, but drank tea a lot. My favorite was Earl Grey with milk. I quit after my last dental appointment. I decided I’d rather have whiter teeth, I had gradually increased my intake of water, which I never much liked. Now I really like water, so no tea is necessary. I miss it, but I’m ok without it.

One of my favorite tea experiences was cherry blossom tea at a celebration of Japan’s girls’ day at the home of Japanese friends. The flavor was very delicate with a very faint salty tone. And if you haven’t tried popcorn tea. Try it. I’m not sure if it’s Chinese or Japanese, but it’s great and quite unusual.

I prefer coffee.

It’s pretty much the only thing that I drink. When I’m in places with iffy water, then I drink bottled water (and more gin, hold the ice), but at home I drink about a gallon of iced tea every day, year ‘round.

I drink about 2 quarts of iced tea each day during the warmer months and a couple of pots of hot tea when it’s cooler. I love tea.

JLeslie's avatar

Yes. I like basic tea, no fancy flavors. Just a little sugar added. Sometimes I purposely don’t mix in the sugar well so the last sips are very sweet. Yummy.

I drink coffee every day, but I do enjoy the occasional cup of tea.

Kardamom's avatar

Does anyone like that drink called the Arnold Palmer? Iced tea with lemonade. I love that! I think there’s an alcoholic version of it too, but I just mean the regular soft stuff.

downtide's avatar

I like both tea and coffee. I find tea more refreshing, so I prefer tea rather than coffee first thing in the morning. I love Rooibos (redbush) tea. And Lemon & Ginger tea.

Yes, I even grow my own chamomile and is the best cup of tea you will ever have! Yum

I never drank tea before this year. A friend suggested I try drinking chamomile tea for my anxiety and it helped. I have some on standby for when I feel really anxious or an attack nears.

aprilsimnel's avatar

I like Earl Grey, English Breakfast and Yorkshire Gold teas.

Your_Majesty's avatar

I prefer tea than coffee. I drink red tea most of the time, sometimes I drink green tea, Chinese herbal tea, and lemon tea.

Porifera's avatar

I love tea. My fave is PG tips and English Breakfast. Also, Jasmine tea and green tea. I collect 1–1.5 cup teapots and accessories

@aprilsimnel I haven’t tried Yorkshire Gold teas. You didn’t mention this on the Yorkshire thread hehe

creative1's avatar

I am normally a regular coffee drinker but I actually like alot of different flavors of tea, my friends family lives in England and when they come for a visit she will have them bring some of the teas not here in the US, I do have to admit they have some pretty great tea in England.

lucillelucillelucille's avatar

I do.I grow chamomile tea that I drink out of a porcelain teacup that I made.:)

Symbeline's avatar

Ew I really dislike tea. I’m more of a coffee person. Iced tea rocks though.

Anyone remember those Lipton Brisk iced tea commercials with Jacky Chan made out of clay lol?

SavoirFaire's avatar

I drink quite a bit of tea. A lot of Chinese teas, but also rooibos tea, lemon zinger (and other fruity teas), and the occasional Earl Grey. I’ve been on a kiwi pear green tea kick lately.

Hawaii_Jake's avatar

It’s cool and wet here today, and I had a cup of hot Assam tea. It was delicious.

filmfann's avatar

I used to drink a lot of tea, before I developed a Caffine Allergy.

incendiary_dan's avatar

When I’m not making my own mixtures out of wild plants, I’m partial to Earl Grey. That is when I’m not drinking coffee.

King_Pariah's avatar

I’m a tremendous fan of green tea. However, most any tea suits me.

athenasgriffin's avatar

All cold tea, I am more picky about hot tea. I hate, hate, hate sweetened tea, though.

downtide's avatar

@Vunessuh camomile tea is vile stuff. It’s like drinking something that died in the garden. If I had to drink that it would make me more anxious!

@filmfann try Rooibos. It’s naturally caffeine-free

martianspringtime's avatar

Yes, but not often. I like very strong hot tea, but it never turns out quite how I like when I make it. I live for the free samples at Teavana though!
I also drink Snapple, but I’m sure that hardly counts. And I love a good sweet tea.
I’m more of a coffee drinker, if we’re taking sides.

Black, Green, White, Oolong, With and without milk or sugar… I drink daily in many forms!
