I drink lipton ice tea, or green tea variations. Right now I'm going through a pomagranate green tea thing. I used to sweeten all teas with honey or sugar, but now I only put lemon juice in it

I dump sugar in regular store bought tea, because I don't think it has much flavor.

High quality loose leaf tea I drink straight because it is way nummy

In good tea I usually just add a pinch of sugar to enhance the flavors, not enough to sweeten it.

JoLeigh, I am totally hooked on Luzianne's Creole blend coffee. You should be able to get it at a grocery there, I'd think, but they also sell it online on their site. And it's incredibly inexpensive! I pay just over $4 for a brick (a little under a pound) but the real savings comes in the fact that you use half as much to brew. 1 scoop (2 tbsp.) makes 4 cups instead of 2.

It's really rich, it's waaaayyyy smooth and has no bitterness to it.

Oh, and if you're traveling, the Sumatra blend at the Pilot truck stops is surprisingly good! It's been funny because I usually stop and get a cup on my way to the writing workshops and I get there and sit down with my truck stop coffee in the midst of all the Panera and Starbucks cups (except for Diana, who used to be in outside sales and spent days on the road so she comes in with Pilot coffee too). I've had the Starbucks and Panera and frankly, I don't find it any better, really not as good!

But the coffee at the Copper Cellar is sublime.

I showed Adam the David's Tea website and he proceeded to buy birthday cake and red velvet cake.

If anyone wants to buy from Adagio, I have $5 coupon codes. But they expire 24 hours after I release them, so let me know when

I'm going to try one of my earl greys in a bit, just not sure which one...

It's okay, you can go fail in a cornet with Dizzy


Really, though, I can't comprehend how someone can hate ALL tea. They're all so different! Herbal tea is nothing like black tea which is nothing like white tea and on and on. The Blood Orange tea tastes like...blood oranges! Nothing else. The apple tea tastes like apples, and nothing else.
