Of all the new flavors of tea they keep coming out with, what is your favorite flavor?

I like Vanilla Maple.

Where to start? I'm somewhat of a tea afficianado. Mint tea is always an old standard. Lapsang Suchong is great (it's a smoked tea, but it's not for everyone). Yerba Mate, traditional green tea. Peach and cherry teas are also really good.

I love green tea and wish I actually made it more often. Maybe now with the cold Canadian weather quickly approaching...

I also like peppermint and am definately going to give that Vanilla Maple a try!

I like *some* green teas... but I have to be very cautious. I used to drink green tea every day. Didn't matter what the quality was, whatever. And then-- dun dun DUN...

It made me ralph. Not just any ol' ralph, mind you -- I projectile ralphed like Linda Freaking Blair. And it happened several times, immediately after drinking green tea, so I know that's what it is. But weirdly, not ALL green teas do that to me... just most of them.

Ever since then, I can take one sniff of a green tea and tell whether or not it will cause that somewhat-less-than-pleasant reaction. I have absolutely NO explanation for it. It just happened one day and there's no going back. And apparently it's not just limited to green teas, because a similar thing happened to me once with a cheapie English Breakfast blend.

I'm a fan of Pearl tea sometimes .... but green tea is always a fave when I want to relax. Otherwise, I also like Mandarin Orange Spice ... there's a little coffee shop out here that hand-mixes the best blend for mandarin spice .... so yummy

I can't say I've ever really gotten into hot tea per se unless I'm sick. in that case, I keep a little darjeeling and some honey around, and drop some bourbon in. Believe it or not, it works some wonders. (a few drops of bourbon, kids ) Have had some chai lattes, not too bad, either.

I am a coffee guy, though. I have a half pound of pure Kona my sis brought back from Hawaii. I do love me some iced tea... peach flavor for some reason... and the old standby, lemon...

Not much of a tea drinker myself. I hail from the south so we tend to drink a lot of sweet, iced tea here. It's funny if you go anywhere outside of the southern states and ask for sweet tea, people will tilt their heads like a puzzled dog. We have this food chain by the name of Wafflehouse here which is also a southern thing. Real gourmet southern greasy food. YUMMY!

I can't say I drink tea. Although every so often I ache for a 'berber whiskey' - the tea that I drunk with local berbers in Morocco, mmmmm....

I have a tea adiction, I loves me tae I do. None of that frilly "green" tea or "mint banana" tea, Loyns or Barrys tea, it's yer only man.

That's just an Irish thing though.

Someone told me tea is bad for you though, strips the body of vitimins and minerals, is that true?

If tea is bad, why does it taste so good? I guess then I'll have to eat more oranges and iron. Good thing I have that iron mine in my backyard.

I love most all tea. I had some Tazo something or other last night and it was delicious. I also like to double bag. Some chamoille tea with anything else to make it taste nicer before bed time... mmmm chamomeille... i have no idea how to spell that word.
