Tea, Earl Grey, hot.

I enjoy Indian chai, and have had it prepared for me by an Indian native by the traditional method.  I saw the act as a gesture of goodwill and friendship, and felt honored that she went to the trouble.


 


I never did learn to appreciate black tea.  However, since hot tea is the drink of civilization (here and now), I will drink it if offered without complaint.

I drink Earl Grey on occasion, but coffee is my caffeinated beverage of choice.

I sometimes drink bottled green tee but most of the time I either drink water or soda.

Went from a coffee and expresso junkie in College (sleepless study nights) to a more relaxing ginger/camomile tea and of course Earl Grey (it really is HOT!).

Yes. Nearly everyday, Earl Grey is easily my favorite.

I hate coffee, so I am trying to expand my palate by getting into drinking tea. I have tried Earl Grey... the story behind that is funny.


I was working at a late-night event at the Chicago Field Museum and was taking a brief break with some of the other volunteers. I was dead on my feet and desperate for some caffeine, but I had forgotten to bring any cash (and nobody else seemed to have any) so I couldn't get a coke or pepsi from the vending machines. Desperate, I snuck over went hunting at the concessions table intended for the museum visitors only, which technically meant I wasn't supposed to touch the stuff. All they had was tea and coffee, and of course, I can't stand coffee.... but WHAT to my SURPRISE, they had Earl Grey! I'd never tried it before but being in such a desperate state as I was I grabbed it wolfishly, brewed it and gulped it down.


Well, it was awful... but then again, I drank it straight... dunno how Picard could handle it.

I don't like tea. I'm just not a big fan of the taste. Same thing with coffee. And I try not to drink too much soda. So I'm more of a water person.


But who knows? It's been a while since I've had tea. Maybe my tastebuds have changed . . .

Yes, I drink tea!!


 


Usually we would get the plain Lipton's Orange Pekoe or Tetley Black tea when I was a kid. It was a few years later when I tried Earl Grey because of Picard. :lol: Tastes like Fruit Loops.

The trick is to boil the water properly.

A lot of things upset my stomach (including coffee sometimes) but tea settles it.


Earl Grey
Lady Grey
English Breakfast
Irish Breakfast
Russian Caravan
Vanilla tea
Caramel tea
Prince of Wales
Chai (various kinds of)
Boibos


...and a few others. I prefer tea that you can put milk in, but also occasionally drink green tea, or ginger or peppermint tea when I am sick.


With many of these too there are different brands, which all taste different -- so if something tastes yuck the first time around, you can always look for another brand if you wish. I like to infuse tea for four minutes after I have boiled the kettle.
