Default TEA: What are you Drinking?

This thread is meant to share what tea you're drinking, be it Lipton to Pu'erh.

Tonight I am drinking Jasmine Pearls green tea from Adagio. Not bad, but I need more convincing to buy more.

What Tea are you drinking?

I'm drinking Harney & Sons Hot Cinnamon Spice.

It's been the start of my day for the last couple weeks.

Some mainland TGY brought over earlier in the year by a student. Doesn't taste like TGY Taiwanese style, I doubt it is even from the TGY bush - more like an AliShan oolong (chinshin bush) to my taste.

Drinking a cup of Adagio's Lounge Chair Lapsang. Not as smoky as I would prefer, but well balanced.

so what's your verdict on the Jasmine Pearl? I was a big fan when I first started drinking it. Now, not so much. The perfumed taste is not something I'm fond of anymore. For a change of pace it's OK but I have to be in a certain mood for it. Sometimes I throw in a couple pearls and brew up a mix of utility teas just to give it a lift.

Sorry it's taken me forever to get back to you!

The perfume is a bit much for me. I can bear it once in a while, but those teabags will likely go a long while before I use them all.


I had Ginger Pu-erh tea the other day. That was interesting. I'm not a big fan of ginger, so I think it made the Pu-erh taste/smell funky.

Some BOTL here (Emjaysmash himself - thanks again, brother!) bombed me a bag of Teavana China White Needle (I think that was the name of it) a while back. Now I need to go to their website and order a couple others. I really liked the change of pace from coffee.

A milk oolong from Teasource. I tried it a couple times at work but the water wasn't hot enough, it's quite good with my electric kettle.

smokers don't drink a lot of tea? I may be an exception then? I prefer tea over milk and coffee though I hate the nasty stain it sometimes causes. Right now I am into chamomile tea. My girl says it helps cure insomnia.

Really enjoying "Gold Peak Iced Tea" which is easy to find in most every grocery store. "gjose" a good way to avoid staining your teeth with coffee and tea's is to drink them through a straw. You get used to it after awhile and it really does make a difference.
