It's my cuppa tea...

Just out of curiousity, what's your favorite hot tea (or iced tea, or coffee?), if any? 

I love all the above, but recently have become addicted to Golden Moon's Coconut Pouchong. Someone turned me on to it with a special sampler deal they have (had?) going on. It's expensive, but really good. It's a loose tea that I make in the tea press my FIL gave me years ago (before he died). In-laws live in London.  I like Lipton's Constant Comment as well, and several herbal teas.  I love coffee and Lipton's Peach Ice Tea (we make at home from their peach teabags). 

I also collect teapots and mugs :D

 I've never heard of a tea press. I like hot or iced tea. I also drink decaf or regular coffees that I make in my Keurig!

I like hot tea with a touch of honey and lemon in the winter.  Iced tea with no sweetner at all in the summer...and coffee in the morning year round.  I'm not much into the flavors...black tea is good for me.

I like all kinds of flavored teas, but I drink mostly water these days.  I'm with Mouse - gotta have my coffee in the morning.

I'm a coffee gal 99% of the time in the morning, but occasionally I'll go on a tea kick. Either a plain black tea or Constant Comment for me.

Oh, I'm a coffee person, too. Every morning, rain or shine.  I do love my teas, too, though. My hubby is from London, England, so tea is rather important in our house. 

I drink my coffee with heated milk and stevia (allergic to nutrasweet) and I make it in an espresso machine.  Quicker that way - both making and hitting the bloodstream LOL. I got on on sale/clearance a year or so ago.  My tea- just with honey or stevia (depends on what I am not out of).  Hub drinks his with milk and sugar.

Susan, I always knew you were one of my soul sisters - CC is one of my favs.

Melinda - this summer we've been doing iced tea with peach flavored tea bags. It's awesome! Very light peach flavor, even hubby likes it. 

We make our iced tea with a big teabag or 3 small ones in a quart mason jar (several at once) with 1/2 cup sugar in each jar and pour in boiling water. We find using the mason jars we don't get as much bacteria in the stored tea and it lasts a little longer. Though with these hot southern temps, it doesn't last long as we drink it almost faster than we can make it.
