How do you drink your tea?

Do you make a large pitcher and then store it in the refrigerator to chill or do you buy and use the individual tea bag and then pour hot water out of the kettle over it and let it steep?

Do you add sugar, milk and cinnamon then chill it for Chai Tea or do you drink it straight up?

  • I grew up in Alabama and we ALWAYS drank sweet tea that we made in a pitcher then put in the fridge to chill.

    However, when I met hy husband five years ago, he introduced me to hot tea (he's from new england...they don't have a whole lot of cold sweet tea up there). I LOVE hot tea! I put a sugar cube in mine and stir it with a cinammon stick for a little extra flavor. Sometimes I put vanilla flavoring and a caramel block in it and let it melt...mmmmm.

    I love Chai Tea as well!

  • My answer is Yes! LOL I love my sweet tea so I keep a pitcher in the fridge (has to be decaf these days), When I make hot tea sometimes I brew my Turkish tea (it is not in a bag, is loose tea) or will use tea bag. I use Agave syrup or honey to sweeten. Sometimes I add milk. It all depends on my mood.

  • sweet tea, in the fridge. usually i'll put the sugar in the pitcher, mix in the hot tea then add ice cubes untill it's nice and cold before i top of with cold water then put in the fridge. i don't know why, but it makes it taste better putting the cubes in asap.

  • For sweet tea, I use tea bags in boiled water, sugar and refrigerate. But I usually have mine straight up. I like to mix my green tea with oolong.

  • I put a chamomile tea bag in a coffee cup and add water to about a half inch from the top and put in the microwave for and min and a half. I then let it sit in the water for 5 to 10 min. I take the tea bag out and add lemon juice and honey. I am drinking some right now. It is very very good, especially since I am sick.

  • I put water in a coffee mug then put it in the microwave until it boils. Then I add the tea bag and let it steep for as long as I'm drinking it. I usually don't finish a whole cup, so I put it in the fridge and add more hot water and sometimes another bag the next morning.
