Hot tea

My entire life (well, since I was 6 or 7, anyway), I've hated iced tea. Just cannot stand it. So it's only recently that I discovered I actually like hot tea.

So now I'm looking to pick up a few flavors/brands so I can drink more of it and have some variety. Are there any that you absolutely love that you would recommend I try?

  • I'm a big fan of chai tea. It's like drinking a pumpkin pie.

  • Do yourself a favor and find a Teavana. The place even smells heavenly and they have billions (ok well a lot anyway) of different kinds of tea.

  • I usually buy Bigelow brand tea. My favorite flavor is seasonal, but still available. It's Autumn Spice. I also really love Lipton's Bavarian Berry flavor.

  • Teavana is AMAZING! But it's easy to over spend on your first visit.

    What sort of tea have you tried? Black? Green? White? Red? Herbal?

  • Some of my favorites:

    With some milk/cream and sugar tastes just like a Chai Tea Latte

    Best when I just CAN'T relax before bed

    Interchangable with the above

    There are a few more but I can't find good images right now.

  • I've tried green tea - I particularly like it when it's got a minty hint to it. My mom got me some Sleepytime Sinus Soother tea - which is what really made me go "OMG, I actually like this stuff!" lol I've tried black, but didn't like it. Other than that, I'm open to trying anything. Now that I've discovered that I like tea as long as it's hot, I'm willing to experiment quite a bit.

    Sorry it took me so long to come back. Took the kids outside and lost track of time. lol

  • Get some of the samplers then. I'm not real fond of the fruit teas, they tend to get super bitter pretty fast.
