Who drinks Tea?
« on: March 28, 2008, 12:26:59 AM »
Just a simple question and I'm not talking about (for example)... Green Tea Supplements I'm merely asking who likes a cuppa of tea or perhaps afternoon tea etc..

My favorites include Earl Grey straight, Darjeeling one of my Du joir teas, Irish Breakfast Tea or English Breakfast has a nice kick, and Green Tea or Oolong Tea brewed they are pretty good as well.

So what are your favorites? One thing I really like is not only does tea create a perfect balance in my day it also has many health benefits as well.

Hi mike

I'm mainly a coffeee drinker but I do have one cup of tea at supper time.

Alpine Tea..ingredients are..senna leaf, fennel seed, ginger root, marchmallow lead and a few others ican't remember..and it's 100% pure herbs, it can be taken as is or you can add honey or lemon to it...I take it as is and it has a really nice flavor.

I love a good cup of tea in the morning -- usually after I get to work, or on weekend it is usually after I've had breakfast.  Just plain old black tea, with milk and a bit of sugar.

Of course, on hot days here in Texas, I can quaff gallons of iced tea.  Being from West Texas, that means *non-sweet* tea, as opposed to those East Texans and Southerners who seem to enjoy sweet (*extremely* sweet) iced tea.

Cheers,

Henry

It only happens in Bridget Jones Movies...theme parties have moved on a bit  since then (where have you been Philly)..but if you ever find yourself hosting one I suggest you serve those cucumber sandwiches...watching Vicars going through cucumber withdrawals is not a pretty sight.. ;)

BTW..If this ever happens at a Tarts and Vicars party you are attending..there is a good home treatment you can use...just whip off the dog collar and stick a whiskey in his hand, he will stop screaming as soon as the whiskey has been swallowed....trust me it works every time.

Sounds like a riot. Is it preferable to have her Royal Majesty be in attendance for these special events? Perhaps her Royal Majesty could address her subjects, and if the King himself is accompaning her royal majesty he might fancy a glass of the finest scotch availible vice the poor mans tonic better known as whiskey.

 . . . and they grow the best tea. Nice, clean refreshing stuff with very little tannin. Not that ghastly muck from China that tastes like paint stripper or vile rot from India which is not dissimilar to three day old dishwater strained through a football player's sock.

If I where to have a cup of tea I would choose Earl Grey with cream and sugar, sometimes without the cream.

I'm a North Texan so I usually polish off a gallon or near a gallon of sweet iced tea a day. About a cup of sugar per gallon of tea.

That is 3.8 liters or 8 pints a day.

She gave me a Pomegranate Raspberry green tea that is addictive as hell. to make matters worse i cant find it here, i had to go back to Indy~anner to get some more. :D
She did give me a Chamomile tea that helps with the side effects of the meds i have in the morning, and helps me sleep ( i don't sleep good anymore)

Once in a while i drink lemon or ginger tea.  I prefer coffee though

Well to be more clear as I said earlier I do like coffee and prefer good roasts and the like If you seen my kitchen I have a Starbucks French press and a top of the line coffee maker and some would conclude that I am the above average coffee drinker. Truth be told though I have cut back on my coffee drinking to the weekends as I have found that drinking morning cup of coffee every morning no longer helps me anymore in fact it makes me more tired not too mention I have the aftertaste left in my mouth at the end of the day similar to drinking soda. However the recent touted antioxidant benefits of coffee keeps me coming for the morning cup on the weekends.     

Having said all of that and keeping with the topic at hand about drinking tea I find that I drink tea not for the caffeine content or waking up like a coffee effect but tea gives me a longer awakeness perhaps with the natural herbs or content of other things in the tea leaves not too mention I think tea drinking is good for those who are HIV+, now comparing tea to coffee is simply when I drink Coffee I drink it for the taste or occasional pick me-up but like I said Coffee doesn't give me a healthy or well being feeling per say.

As we all know Coffee is a universal thing even more so than tea is and Western Civilization such as ours "America" probably can't or don't appreciate Tea as much as those in say European or Asian countries.

I think Tea drinking is more of a personal thing it's more of an acquired taste. Just because you don't drink it is your choice understandably so, and just because your HIV+ doesn't mean you should or shouldn't drink Tea but I think it's better to drink Tea than take supplements as we can over do it with pills and vitamins and not necessarily get the benefits we hope for and sometimes do more damage than good.
 
I hope this all makes sense.

My 2 cents.... Mike

It's a cultural thing.

In Australia, NZ (and the UK) most of us start drinking tea from an early age. I remember as a kid coffee was nasty powdered stuff, but tea was always drawn fresh in a pot.

Nothing is as invigorating first thing as good strong tea.

I believe that in continental Europe things are different and coffee is the norm. Same with the States, I'm told.

Lucas, I think the brand starts with an "S," they also make a great Ginger Peach Green and a few others.

I'll check at work tomorrow for the name and maybe we can figure out how to find you some.  Its not a common brand of tea, if I remember correctly.

I think Betty's got stock in the company and is holding out on us to drive the price up.
we may have to google up the stockholders and see if she is c.e.o. of the company.
The white tea with raspberry is very good also.

oddly enough I can not drink tea in the morning. It makes me nauseous.

I went to breakfast with some girlfriends before school 20 + years ago and drank a few cups and on the way to school puked in the poor girls back seat. I haven't been able to drink tea in the morning since.

Girl, can't you tell?  The Yankees like fruit flavored brews.  It hides the nastiness.

and remember:

In Britain and some Commonwealth countries, the order in which the milk and the tea enter the cup is often considered an indicator of social class. Persons of working class background are supposedly more likely to add the milk first and pour the tea in afterwards, whereas persons of middle and upper class backgrounds are more likely to pour the tea in first and then add milk. This is said to be a continuing practice from a time when porcelain (the only ceramic which could withstand boiling water) was only within the purchasing range of the rich - the less wealthy had access only to poor quality earthenware, which would crack unless milk was added first in order to lower the temperature of the tea as it was poured in.

I drink all kinds of Tea... from your basic southern sweet tea... to calendula, yarrow, burdock, stinging nettle, yerba mate' and lots of coffee... for a sweetner from sweet-n-low, refined sugar, splenda, and stevia... plus too many cokes... hot tea for a hot afternoon... cold ice tea year round.... I need to drink more plain water...

I am a fan of tea, much more so than coffee. I think I drink coffee in the morning just because everyone else did when I was growing up.

I was given a very nice English Breakfast tea. It is Ceylon black tea, packed in Sri Lanka and very delish with just a bit of sugar or honey.

My ex gave me some wonderful Georgian tea that also was scrumptious. (Georgian as in Russian, not the southern state.)

I also like Earl Grey and Irish Breakfast. Tetley makes one called British Blend which is tolerable as an iced tea.

I am not crazy about tea bags, but in the U.S., they are almost all you can get much of the time. I would prefer my tea loose, just like my men!  ;)

HUGS,

Mark

Yogi Egyptian Licorice is my fav. I've got one of those bodum teapots with the unbreakable outside. It's an extravagence I can't really afford, but it gets used!

Tea seems to me a more subtle pleasure than coffee, appropriate for more advanced tastes.  ;D
