Default Tea thread? Tea thread!

I just bought some sample packs of black, oolong, and green tea varieties (loose leaf) and so far most have been delicious. Now I want to do it right and get some specific flavors and brewing stuff. What do you like, how do you make it, gimme recommendations and share your tips

Yay TEA!

I'm currently drinking a lot of rooibos with some black for variety (and a little caffeine).

Current, and long term, favs are:
Republic of Tea Mint Chocolate, Strawberry chocolate, and Lemon Chiffon.
Zhena's Gypsy Teas Coconut Chai
Adagio Hazelnut and Vanilla Honeybush and Mango Rooibos teas

ETA: other than the chai, I generally drink my tea straight. The chai I add about a half teaspoon of cane sugar. All teas I prepare according to the directions, though usually with just boiling water from my Keurig. I have a wee tea ball for the loose leaf stuff.

Okay what exactly is roobios? Iv never liked the herbal teas in the cheap teabags so Iv been avoiding those in the loose leaf too. is roobios also a "faux tea" thats not made with tea leaves?

If you lived closer I'd drop off the Strawberry Chocolate for you. I was very excited to try it, but apparently I do not like red tea.

I do like the RoT Caramel Vanilla a lot however! I just use Keurig as well. I do put some milk in all the tea I drink hot.

It *is* a faux tea (not actual tea leaves), but I don't like regular herbals, either. I found black a little too bitter in many cases; the rooibos is much lighter.

Love tea... but apart from Peppermint, it makes me sick and nauseous on an empty stomach, and sometimes even a light snack won't cut it. So frustrating!
