    Tea; Whats your fave, how do you make it...

    Hey all,

    For tea drinkers; what is your fave tea? How do you usually fix it? In the cup? In the kettle? What do you like to put in it?


    My fave tea; Uncle Lee's Green Tea 'Jasmine' (great stuff)

    New tea I am trying; Guayaki Yerba Mate (has a strange flavor, but famous in the health food sector)

    Creation: Fill the coffee maker up with water, drop in 6 bags of Jasmine, maybe 1 or 2 Guayaki bags as well. Lasts a few hours. No additives with it.

    Curious to see how others have theirs.....

    usually Earl Grey or Darjeeling for me, although assam isn't bad... preperation: Drop single tea bag in a mug, add 2 sugars , add boiling water let brew for 3-4mins, add milk, remove tea bag and enjoy... (the 2 sugars makes it a NATO.... oh and don't let the NAAFI do it for you.... unless you like luke warm weak stuff), or for a twist, go with the earl grey, same procedure as above and add a capfull of Scotch... great for a cold morning... really kickstarts the system...

    another favourite tea of mine is called Liptons, comes in Peach or Lemon flavour bottled, and is served cold with ice < THAT is my favourite tea...

    gonna have to try yours though Bill, sounds quite nice...

    Currently it´s green tea, but only high quality japanese. Cheap green tea is a pure disgrace IMHO!

    My fav. is Kabusecha Tenko.

    Preparation:
    You have to wait some time for the boiled water to cool down to araund 60°-70°. And don´t let the tea in the water any longer than 60 sek. You can use the same leaves for two further infusions, it get´s a little softer in taste then.

    Superb stuff!!! Highly recomended for "hardcore-green-tea-lovers" you´ll find here:

    Regards
    Alex

    PS: Personally I am a coffee-nut, too. Need both tea (strong assam in the morning) and loads of coffee to make my day

    Straight forward 'proper' tea like English Morning Breakfast, NATO Standard. All day, every day :salute:

    Fresh water always boiled, straight in to a mug with the bag, stir it around a few times to get enough flavour and a good colour without stewing it, then remove the bag and add Milk and sugar.

    Perfection

    Vanilla Rooibos tea is my new favorite, I'm still trying different brands but haven't found one I disliked. If you enjoy tea and haven't tried Rooibos tea your in for a treat.

    Lipton Tuscan Lemon....love it. I never was much a tea drinker until introduced to it by my Virginia wife. A very nice habit around 2:00 in the afternoon. I believe our British friends had something there.

    LOLOLOL.... Love that, when he would have his tea made, lolol.. Good one Tim.



    Man, some really great ways of having Tea. I didnt know there was so many ways. I know there is alot of tea out there.

    Alex, sounds like you have it down to an engineered science. I too like to reuse the tea bags and add a fresh one as well.


    I must admit I am also a coffee-aholic and have to have my morning doses or the day isnt complete... On that 'off topic', I mix a scoop and a half of Walmart decaf and half a scoop of good, french roasted Espresso custom. I cant take alot of caffiene, but I can sure take alot of tea...

    I am too sloppy for making a science out of anything realy:redf: Just discoved greentea rather late - always prefered solid strong black teas - and figured my way through it. Don´t use any thermometer for the temp or stopwatch for the infusion or anything, just pure feeling! If it tasts good it sure is good!

    Bill, usually when I stand in front of my replicator every morning I order "coffee black, hot". I don't report to the bridge until I have my coffee and I've kicked Dr. Crusher out of my quarters. I'm not worried because Number One has everything under control.

    My favourite cup of tea is actually coffee . I normally drink instant coffee as other persons in this house normally drink "green tea". On the rare occasion I drink tea I drink ordinary black tea (Pickwick - English melange).

    Cheers,

    I'm another coffee drinker (I've just come back from two weeks in the US - sorry guys but what you drink is not coffee, it's just brown water and you should be ashamed ) but I also like a strong cup of Lapsang souchong from time to time.

    Boil up water, pour it into a kettle, drop in some tea bags, wait a few minutes and done?

    I like peppermint.

    Ditto, sans the fish. I'll never turn away a hush puppy though.
    I drink iced tea with lemon by the gallons.

    But haven't done so in a while. But they carry some very delicious green teas...

    Red Rose tea. A little hard to find, but so worth the effort. Smooth, never bitter. I prefer boiling water in a whistling tea kettle, then letting the bag steep for a moment or two. Makes excellent iced tea, too.

    Think I'll go brew some hot tea now.
