I love a cup of tea me.

Two sugars and just a splash of milk and nice and strong.

I'm quite fussy about it.

Loose leaf flavored black tea with sugar and milk. Decaf or herbals at night.

I'll have a cup of tea now and then. I'll try pretty much anything with a gob of honey in it, but I can't do anything with dairy in it.

My favorite was this African red tea with vanilla in it. I haven't been able to find it again in quite some time =(

As of late I've had a Honey citron tea that is pretty yummy. I decided I prefer it to hot to cold though.

I am a great fan of Puer (aged, fermented Chinese tea), but the good stuff is very expensive, and it takes a lot of practice to get it right. Once you do, you can steep the same leaves over again all day long. It's earthy, a bit smoky, which I like.

For the time being I've quit all caffeine. I was a huge fan of pu-erh tea as well. It was an intense special interest of mine about ten years ago. I bought between $500-$600 of it in a big order including whole tongs as well as smaller orders. I prefer raw vs. "ripe"/composted. Yunnan Sourcing is a good online retailer with a vast selection. I still have a lot of the tea I purchased in bing form. I've recently looked at the same teas that are still available and they've quadrupled or quintupled in price. They will only get better with age.

Once or twice a month, I have tea in the afternoon - hot or iced-tea depending on weather.

I have a lot of different flavours of tea. My favourites are peppermint and Matcha, but I like nearly every type I’ve tried. Rooibos was different, but the second cup was nicer than the first, so I’m hoping I’ll like it once I’ve had it a few more times.

I also love my tea. I like my tea black with 1-2 packets of Stevia.

Hate coffee, love tea. Especially green tea. No milk or sugar. My personal favorite green tea is one with a bit of ginger.

I grew up drinking tea.....but sad to say, i defected to the dark side and became a coffee drinker!

Fun fact for you, here in the UK, a cuppa is such a part of our life that the national grid has to increase its power output at certain times to account for the massive drain on the grid of us all having a cuppa at the same time!

I drink (black) tea about once a week, which may count as irregular in the UK.

I enjoy the occasional cup of Lapsang Souchong.
